Saunton is set in the North Devon Biosphere, and lies between the villages of Croyde and Braunton.

The three mile stretch of golden sands backs on to Braunton Burrows, a vast area of dunes, with Crow Point lying at the southern end of the beach, at the mouth of the River Taw. The area is a nature lover’s paradise with a variety of flora and fauna; great for exploring and walking. ¬†Saunton also has a championship golf course, and a pretty church.
