Toddler Friendly Pre-School Beach Holidays in Devon

Children’s holidays don’t have to all be about noisy kids’ clubs and mascots – if you’re looking for something more relaxed and enjoyable for the adults too, then we’ve got a Villa for your family. With miles of sandy beach and dunes on our doorstep, the only limit is your sense of adventure! Let kids be kids; free their imagination and unleash their inner explorer. 

Whilst your little one is still young and you’re not yet tied to school holidays, make the most of an out-of-season beach holiday in Devon. You’ll avoid the crowds and benefit from lower prices; its a win-win!

Nature’s Very Best Playground

The beach is nature’s own playground, come rain or shine, there is always fun to be had! With miles of golden sand for little wellies to explore, you’ll create precious family moments that you’ll all remember for years to come. A holiday at Saunton Beach Villas gives you a chance to get the kids out in nature and discovering their inner explorer – we all know that outdoor play has huge benefits for our children’s health and well-being.

Here are a few ideas for beach fun:

  • A treasure hunt, what can you find? Shells…rocks…seaweed…what treasure will your little adventurers discover? (Yes, more shells for the collection…sorry!)
  • Climb the dunes – what can you see from the top? Slide back down (dig out that sled!)
  • Rockpooling – grab a net and bucket and see what you can find. Crabs, limpets, anemones, maybe even a starfish!
  • A good old fashioned bucket and spade can provide hours of fun!
  • Paddle in the sea, jump and count the waves!

A Base for Exploring North Devon

Saunton Beach Villas is the perfect base from which to explore all that North Devon has to offer, and we’re here to help you plan your perfect holiday. Pack your wellies, puddle suits, buckets, spades, and binoculars – Devon is for explorers!

Take a look in our ‘Explore’ section for a wealth of inspiration to help you plan your holiday. We’ve thought of it all – from free activities such as local parks and playgrounds, to ideas for top undercover days out, we’ve included something for all ages and all weathers.

Making holidays stress-free

When you’ve got young kids, you can’t go far without a car packed to the brim – we know what it’s like! That’s why we’ve made our bed guards, travel cots, and high chairs available upon request, free of charge (you’ll just need your own travel cot bedding). Simply add any of these items to your booking during the checkout process.

You can also request one of our ‘Infant Packs’ which includes a toilet stool, plastic plate, bowls, and cutlery. If you’re bringing your dog, dog crates are also available free of charge, leaving plenty of room for the pram.

As always a great stay in these perfectly located beach Villas. They are basic but perfectly clean, tidy and comfy, just what is needed for a beach holiday with or without dogs. Short walk to the stunning beach, absolute convenience and the beauty of the sand dunes opposite. Always found the reception, team, cleaners to be super friendly and helpful. Will visit again.

Clean, well appointed villa with comfortable beds, the dogs loved it and enjoyed the beach at least twice a day, occasionally more. I never made it to the beach because although I'd spoken to a member of staff before booking to ask about access through the dunes and was informed that that there were concrete paths I wasn't told that in places there were slopes, in particular the quite steep ramp down from the car park to the beach. Even if I'd made use of a beach wheelchair I would have needed assistance to get down and up the ramp and with four dogs to control my friend wouldn't have been able to push me. It spoiled the holiday for me and for my friend, who incidentally had nothing but praise for the members of staff she spoke to having left her laptop behind. They were friendly and helpful and organised it being returned to her as speedily as possible.

We have just got back from a short break here. Absolutely excellent location and accommodation. The most dog-friendly place we have ever stayed. The chalet was spotless and well equipped with a few nice 'doggy' touches - a doggy bag of treats including biscuits, a tennis ball, poo bags and a dog identity disc.Straight out of the chalet onto miles of dunes and an endless beach.

Our 4th stay in the villa but the first time we have arrived in daylight. As soon as we turned off the road, drank in the amazing view Peppa sat up wagging her tail & I swear was smiling the happiest doggy smile ever!Dunes 8 as always was spotlessly clean with the great addition of WiFi & smart tv's. Meant my husband could finish his work , our little girl could watch her favourite tea time programmes & mummy could sit outside with a glass of wine listening to the sea.We were extremely lucky with the weather, lots of long walks on the beach & burrows - absolutely perfect . As always sad faces on leaving & an absolutely exhausted dog!Already looking at dates for our next trip.Thank you once again for an amazing long weekend .
