Travel & tourism

As an Art Deco enthusiast I’d been aware of this hotel since way back in the 1990s, a time when I was a regular visitor to the Devon coast, surfing and scuba diving. Around that time I recall hearing of a project to reverse a lengthy period of decline and restore this historic building to its former glory. I recently had the good fortune to finally stay at the hotel myself.

Burgh Island: Devon’s historic Art Deco hotel

Twice a day the high tide separates Burgh Island from the mainland; during these periods access is via the island’s distinctive ‘sea tractor’. The building itself dates from the late 1920s and the hotel had its heyday during the 1930s, when it was a popular retreat for many of the era’s celebrities. Perhaps most notable among its famous guests was Agatha Christie, who would occupy a cabin set against the cliffs as a writer’s retreat. Christie used the island as the inspirational setting for two of her novels (And then there were none & Evil under the sun).
