Saunton Sands Farm Cottages are set in an idyllic setting in the middle of Braunton Marshes. As you drive up to the cottages you feel like you are miles away from anywhere even though you are only a 5 minute drive from Braunton with its lovely restaurants. There is plenty to enjoy on site at the Cottages. Our children loved... More

We've just returned from a fabulous 3 day family break at these lovely cottages. The cottages are perfect - very well equipped and well thought out. Our children absolutely loved the pool and games room. Unfortunately the weather wasn't good enough for them to enjoy the outdoor play equipment. The surrounding beaches are great and the cottages are within very... More

We researched many accommodations prior to making our choice for our trip from Canada to England and we were so pleased that we made the choice to stay at Saunton Sands Farm. It was an absolutely perfect location for our family get together and also a wonderful base camp for us to explore the gorgeous beaches and cute little coastal... More

What a fantastic place. The is the perfect place for a family holiday. Loads of ground to play in, substantial climbing frame, football goals, games room, swimming pool and a jacuzzi. You can take movies out for the night from the small DVD library at no charge, and coupled with some wine the parents are happy. Position is superb for... More

Just got back from a great 4 night break staying at the Saunton Sands Farm cottages. Stayed in the Mallard which was well equipped and a home from home. Pool and hot tub was a real bonus. Great location, especially for safe cycling with kids. Will be back!

Steve and Ella were very friendly and helpful with suggestions for walks restaurants etc. Our grandchildren were staying in Mallard which had its own Jacuzzi. They loved the swimming pool and games room and fed the pigs... More

A really nice break! The Cottages are comfy, very clean and welcoming. It is really worth a visit - we will definitely be heading back to test out the fishing in warmer conditions. The hot tub at the Mallard was nice, all in all a really nice weekend away and would recommended to all.

We stayed in a one bed cottage with our 3 year old. The one bed cottages would suit any family with one child who are happy to share the bedroom. Great kitchen, well equipped, spotlessly clean, quality furnishings - everything you need for a week away. Stephen and Ella really have thought it of everything and will go out of... More

Spent a very happy half-term in Swan cottage with our two kids (6 and 5). The cottage was very clean, comfortable, nicely decorated and well-equipped - indeed, probably the best equipped self-catering accommodation we've had in the UK. (As well as the obvious, there were starter packs of dishwasher tablets and cleaning materials, a bag of pegs and a drying... More
