There are endless wonderful walks to do along the coast or over Exmoor, all with spectacular scenery and wildlife. The coastal Path is accessible all along the North Devon coastline with breathtaking views. On our doorstep is the Braunton Burrows (our namesake!)  which forms the largest sand dune system in the UK.  It is designated both as a National Nature Reserve and a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve, and it is fabulous to explore on foot.


For the golfers there is a championship course at Saunton just 2 miles away. With 2 great courses to play on, the club is renowned for keeping them in fantastic condition. They welcome visitors, and the courses are set within the backdrop of the Braunton Burrows behind Saunton Sands beach, a stunning and unique location.
