Walking on Waves

The Saunton Sands Hotel, part of Brend Hotels, surely must have on of the most breath taking views in the UK.  Literally perched at the top of the beach, this AA award winning, 4 star luxurious Art Deco hotel nestles into the landscape.  With its renowned restraurant, indoor as well as outdoor pools, what better place to relax and wash off the sand from that surfing experience ?

Sarah Whiteley, owner of Walking on Waves grew up literally overlooking Saunton Sands and after years at the top of her game as both British and European Champion, has returned to her roots to give back to the sport.
