Perfectly situated overlooking the beautiful beach at Saunton Sands on the dramatic north Devon coast, The Penthouse is the ultimate five star luxury retreat offering stylish open plan living space and four gorgeous bedrooms; the ideal getaway for a family or group of friends looking for a very special holiday.

Offering the perfect combination of your own private apartment with the benefit of accessing the fabulous facilities of the Saunton Sands Hotel, including the award-winning Source Spa. On arrival the concierge will transport your bags to your apartment, so you can instantly relax into your getaway. With so much on your doorstep, from surfing the Atlantic waves to enjoying afternoon tea in the hotel, this is the ultimate holiday destination for all the family.

Step inside The Penthouse and you will instantly relax into your stylish surroundings. The living space is ideal for social cosy nights in whilst luxuriating on the comfy sofas watching the latest movies on the Smart TV and a dining-area taking in the mesmerising views of the ocean. The kitchen has a handy breakfast-bar so guests can perch and enjoy a drink, chatting whilst the chef creates a holiday masterpiece! Patio doors lead from the living area onto the balcony where you can watch the ocean ebb and flow or sit back and enjoy the sunshine with a good book, just what holidays are made for!

There are four beautifully appointed double bedrooms, three of which have stylish en suite shower-rooms so no queuing for a shower here. There is also an additional bathroom for a relaxing bath or shower after a busy day. Whether you are looking for a quiet retreat or prefer being pampered and dined at the hotel, The Penthouse offers the best of both worlds.

The beauty of a holiday here is you can choose to be as active as you wish and, subject to the weather, you can order food from our 24-hour room service so you can simply enjoy the fabulous surroundings of your apartment all day, every day without leaving. It would be a shame not to explore The Saunton Sands Hotel's fantastic facilities though and as a guest at The Penthouse, you can access all, including a large swimming pool (heated from mid-May to September but open for cold water dips in winter if you are feeling brave), a well-equipped gym, tennis and fitness classes. You can even loan a Dryrobe from reception! The Source Spa and Wellness is where you can enjoy the marine-inspired thermal suite, treatment rooms and Finnish aroma sauna. Guests can even enjoy surfing lessons which are free during school holidays and at weekends between June and September.

The beautiful sandy beach is a short stroll away and there are many more along the coast including Croyde, Woolacombe and Westward Ho!. The South West Coast Path passes the front door of the hotel, and with 630 miles to explore there's plenty to keep the fittest walker happy. The pretty villages of Appledore and Instow are worth a look and link by a passenger ferry across the estuary in summer. Golfers can choose between the stunning 36-hole course at Saunton, Ilfracombe with the most spectacular views and Portmore on the outskirts of Barnstaple.

Whether you wish to spend your days in the lap of luxury or plan to head out to explore the very best of Devon, many happy memories will be made at The Penthouse.
