BURGH IS­LAND Devon, South-west Eng­land

Get­ting to Burgh Is­land Ho­tel is an ad­ven­ture all by it­self! As the name sug­gests, the ho­tel sits on a tidal is­land, at­tached to Devon by a sandy beach. When the sea comes in the only way across is by a unique sea trac­tor, de­signed to carry you above the waves. The ho­tel it­self is a de­sign land­mark, and con­sid­ered to be one of the best ex­am­ples of Art Deco in Europe, but for a more se­cluded stay forgo the main build­ing and book the Beach House. Orig­i­nally de­signed as a writer's re­treat for fa­mous crime nov­el­ist Agatha Christie, and where she wrote two of her nov­els, the Beach House of­fers panoramic sea views and a pri­vate sun deck.
