Tidal Island well worth visiting

 

Burgh Island Hotel

Burgh Island Hotel

Built as a home in 1929 by millionaire Archibald Nettleford, the Burgh Island Hotel was opened to the public in 1933. The 1930s were the heyday of the hotel, but its guests have included Noel Coward, the Duke and Duchess of Windsor, Kirk Douglas, the Beatles and Agatha Christie, who wrote two of her novels there.

In 1985, Tony and Beatrice Porter bought the island and spent several months restoring the hotel. It now has an authentic Art Deco interior, reminiscent of its days of glory.
