Self Catering Holidays in Devon

Easter is a wonderful time to visit Saunton Beach Villas – the days are drawing out and the weather (we hope!) warms up as Spring blooms in North Devon.

Our dog-friendly Beach Villas are located just moments away from the golden sands of Saunton Beach, making for hassle-free beach days with the family. Head down to the beach for a dog walk, a surf, or a picnic, and then back to your cosy Villa for the evening – no driving or travelling required! Just imagine the fun the children will have exploring an easter egg hunt on the beach or in the dunes!

Our Villas sleep up to 4, 6, or 8 and we are often able to accommodate group bookings for multiple properties next door to each other if you’re coming with extended family and friends.
