Had a great week with the wife staying in ROBIN - a very well equipped one bedroom cottage located in this lovely part of North Devon. All of the cottages were equipped to the same high standard, so I would be happy to stay in any of them. Young families would undoubtedly have an excellent time at the farm with... More

Our second visit and had another lovely holiday. The weather was not very kind but the wonderful environment and facilities at this place and the beautiful beaches close by kept our kids (ages 3 and 5) amused all week. The facilities, attention to detail, and particularly the consideration given to the needs of a young family are in my view... More

We have really enjoyed our second stay. We got greeted by the usual hospitality touch that Stephen and Ella add to your visit like scones, cream and jam waiting for you in your cottage on the day you arrive. Their generosity is amazing - one day there was no surf and they suggested lending us their bikes so we could... More

An excellent holiday for children with lots to do even if the weather's bad. The pool and games room are great facilities. Very comfortable cottages in a beautiful and peaceful part of Devon. Hiring bikes on the Tarka Trail is a must as is a walk over Braunton Burrows to the beach.

Having just enjoyed our 7th stay here we booked our next holiday with Ella and Stephen before we'd even left. Some people might ask how we can go back to the same place for the 8th year running. Well I can only assume that they've never found anywhere as lovely and welcoming as Saunton Sands farm Cottages 😀 Not only... More

We have just returned from our 5th visit and have already booked number 6 for next year. Once again we enjoyed superb surroundings and unbeatable hospitality from Ella and Stephen. Our boat trip on the Ilfracombe Princess is a highlight that I cannot recommend highly enough. We spent most of our time relaxing on site, making use of the exceptional... More

We have just returned from a week's holiday and we couldn't fault the facilities of the farm and cottage. We have young two children (6 and 4) and the farm was ideal for young families with excellent facilities to keep them entertained. The indoor swimming pool was a treat, much needed at the beginning of the week due to the... More

We stayed here for the second time in June. Our twin grandsons are 2.5 yrs and loved their family 'holiday house'. Grandpa and I had a smaller cottage. 150 miles separate our homes, so early breakfast visits were a special part of the holiday. A real home from home for all of us, with everything we needed in our cottages,... More
