Read our review of Saunton Sands Hotel & Spa

So many Muddy ticks for this hotel: for the golden beach location, the Art Deco vibe and the double A-star dining. If you’re looking for a hassle-free staycation, I promise you this is your place. It’s ideal for a romantic tete-a-tete, a spa break with the gals or if you have kids in tow, a stay here comes with two hours of free, yes FREE, childcare, leaving you free to top up in a glorious, contemporary spa, dedicated to finding your health and wellbeing.

Part of the Brend Hotels group, this 74-bedroom hotel is large and luxurious with two pools – indoor and outdoor, and a raft of built-in family entertainment. The vibe is elegant ocean liner, with sea-facing views, and open lounge spaces spread out over various levels. There are two restaurants – both formal and informal, plus a games room for kids, a playroom for littlies and – the jewel in the crown – a new ocean-inspired three-storey spa.

The natural location makes here a great place to top up, with walking breaks, golfing, swimming and surfing on hand but the Source Spa & Wellness raises it to a whole new level.

Each storey of the spa is devoted to an activity – Source Active is the indoor pool and Thermasuite where you can soak in a mineral salt pool and saunas; Source Relax for beautifying treatments, including top-of-the-range Fire & Ice Facials; and at the top, Source Chill – a relaxation room and rooftop sun deck where you can read, daydream or snooze to the sound of mesmeric music and the boom of the waves. If Carlsberg made spas…it’s a total top-up.
