About

Braunton – gateway to the northern coast. Its proximity to North Devon’s famous beaches is reflected in the surf culture of the town – a great place to drop into the numerous surf shops, hire a board, or even discover the roots of our surfing origins at the Museum of British Surfing. Situated in the heart of North Devon’s Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB), the village also incorporates Braunton Burrows, comprising of England’s largest sand dune system (a real treat for wildlife enthusiasts) and one of only two surviving examples of medieval open strip farming systems in the country. A great base to explore from with lots to discover.

 

Saunton is predominantly famous for its beach, Saunton Sands, which is situated at the heart of the North Devon Biosphere Reserve. As well as being a world class family beach (with wide open space, toilet and shower facilities and dog-friendly access to boot), Saunton is also renowned for some of the best surf in the country; it’s a great place for beginners to start, with gear hire and lessons easily arranged. Saunton Sands also has access to a Landeez all-terrain wheelchair, allowing everyone to enjoy the beach. If you’re down for the longer, weekly parking passes are available, and you can hire deck chairs, beach huts or even a pedal cart to explore the beach on site. Once you’re exhausted from walking, water sports or making sandcastles, stop by the

Sands Café for a scenic drink or bite to eat on the balcony – a great venue to watch the sun set.
