What it’s like running a hotel in a world pandemic
Ever wondered what it’s like running a 4-star hotel during a world pandemic? One of our managing directors, Pete Brend shares what it’s been like re-opening and running The Saunton Sands Hotel.
Pete, his wife Kelly and their 3 children had what must have been one of the best lockdowns in the UK, spending three months living alone in the 92 bedrooms Saunton Sands Hotel. Three miles of award-winning beaches, indoor and outdoor pool, huge glamorous dining room, spa, gym and putting green was their back garden for 3 months during the lockdown.

As Pete said in his interview, the momentum in the South West across the summer months has been incredible and we have loved being your host for your summer staycation across Devon and Cornwall.
