I can't really rate this place highly enough. We have two children 3.5 years and 1.5 years and it really was perfect. The accommodation is clean and very well equipped (added extras included tumble dryer/dishwasher/underfloor bathroom heating/children's cutlery!). The location is quiet and beautiful surroundings. So much space and stuff for the kids to do, trampoline, animals, pool, park, games... More

We were looking for a family friendly but relaxing getaway and this did not disappoint! The site was easily accessible but very peaceful and perfect for the kiddies. Fields, swings, slides, animals all available plus the wonderfully warm pool. We stayed in Mallard, it was clean and comfortable with the best bit, the hot tub! Perfect to relax in the... More

The team make this place amazing, the location makes it special and the fact the owners are so involved is brilliant. We had a number of couples staying for my husband's 40th celebration, the patience and the help provided before we even arrived was fantastic. The cottages were all lovely and well equipt. We loved our stay and all our... More

We had a fabulous week at Saunton Sands Farm Cottages with our two young sons. Our cottage (Mallard) was very comfortable and well equipped. We spent a lot of time in the clean and warm swimming pool and also in the games room where there are plenty of toys to keep the little ones amused. There are lots of beautiful... More

We stayed for our 3rd time at Saunton Sands Farm Cottages. The first time it was being run by a different family...it was a great stay then but I have to say that Ella and Stephen have gone all out to make this a real home from home. It's not just the fantastic cottages that are beautifully presented, nor the... More

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

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
