A once-in-a-lifetime stay at a newly refurbished Art Deco icon on a private island in south Devon – includes breakfast, a half-bottle of champagne, plus otional dinner and a suite

  • Cut off twice-daily from Bigbury-on-Sea by the clockwork tides, Burgh Island Hotel is an icon that’s remained largely unchanged in its illustrious history because everything works so well. Once a regular haunt for Agatha Christie and Noel Howard, bring your best threads and enjoy revelling in stories recounted by the long-standing staff.

  • Dinner is an elegant black tie affair, though if you prefer to be more casual, The Nettlefold is on hand with seafood and stunning views. Start with canapes and cocktails in the Palm Court Lounge, before moving to the ballroom for three-course dinners of cod with clam chowder, champagne and rose jelly Beesands crab salad. There's also The Pilchard Inn, while breakfasts are legendary: banana pancakes are a particular treat.

  • Many of this eco-friendly hotel’s rooms and suites have been named in homage to famous past guests in a nod to the hotel’s lengthy history. Individually designed, each is kitted out in Art Deco styling, with a lack of TVs adding to the bygone era-feel. Choose from a spacious Double room or a Suite for more luxury and sea views.
