Burgh Island - Review

CUT OFF FROM THE MAINLAND (forget mobile phones and unwelcome interruptions here), Burgh Island is an Art Deco haven surrounded by the seas. Think flappers in cloche hats, cads with monocles and pencil moustaches or even Baywatch with dress sense, and you are halfway there. Noël Coward adored this great romantic getaway and Agatha Christie used it as a setting for several scenes of sin and seduction in her novels.

This elegant luxury hotel has seen more than its fair share of romantic rendezvous over the years, and its setting is as flighty as a heartbeat – one moment cut off from the South Devon coast, the next linked to real life by a shimmering sandy causeway. At high tide, the sea tractor plucks guests from the mainland, bringing them to this perfectly preserved time-warp where, with Charleston lessons and wicked cocktails, she spirit of the roaring 1920s and indiscreet 30s lives on. Lovingly maintained by Tony Orchard and Deborah Clark, this really is an icon of a golden age.

Rippingly good Martinis

Classic tradition with a contemporary twist marks out dinner in the wonderfully deco dining room, while chef Conor Heneghan blends South Sea spices with catch of the day in The Pilchard Inn, just down the road. On Valentine’s Day, don black tie and pearls and dine on innuendo-laden dishes, after a rippingly good Martini. Learn to Charleston and tango, or climb the hill and watch for dolphins.

Edward came here with Mrs Simpson but we can’t say who stayed with Noël Coward, Gertrude Lawrence or glamorous aviatrix Amy Johnson. Today's guests can discover the potential of South Devon’s biggest bed and private garden of the Garden suite, the bold deco fabrics and mirrored bathroom of Odeon or the cosy slipper bath of Shrimp – the hotel's snuggest room.
