Our Inspector's view
The location alone is a draw at Saunton Sands, a long white art deco hotel overlooking three miles of unspoiled sandy beach. At the heart of the hotel is The Dining Room, bright, elegant and glamorous with its original 1930s chandeliers, overlooking dunes, beach and sea. In summer there’s also the Beachside Grill which offers a more informal alternative.

About the area
With magnificent coastlines, two historic cities and the world-famous Dartmoor National Park, Devon sums up all that is best about the British landscape. For centuries it has been a fashionable and much loved holiday destination – especially south Devon’s glorious English Riviera.
Close to the English Riviera lies Dartmoor, one of the south-west’s most spectacular landscapes. The National Park, which contains Dartmoor, covers 365 square miles and includes many fascinating geological features – isolated granite tors and two summits exceeding 2,000 feet among them.
Not surprisingly, in Dartmoor the walking opportunities are enormous. Cycling in the two National Parks is also extremely popular and there is a good choice of off-road routes taking you to the heart of Dartmoor and Exmoor. Devon’s towns and cities offer stimulating alternatives to the rigours of the countryside.
