The Burgh Island hotel experience changes with the tides and the seasons, no two stays are the same. The whole island experience drifts from utter calm to raw and stormy, so quickly, by day or by night. Whatever the weather, Burgh has a somewhat mesmerising beauty, which gives it a lasting place in the minds and memories of many of our guests. Some guests come back year after year in their favourite season, which in our book is rather special.
The island boasts its own 1327 Inn serving quality ales and food, steeped in tales of pirates, smugglers and pilchard fishing. If you tire of the finer things in life, you’ll love the change of pace in The Pilchard Inn as you indulge in a tankard of frothy, golden ale and a hearty pie.
There are so many stories of eccentricity to be discovered and rediscovered on Burgh. Built in 1929, extended in 1932 and now restored to its ’30s glamour, the beauty and intrigue of this fabulous legendary island has drawn in guests looking to indulge in a unique island experience since the 1930’s. Once you have visited, you’ll never want to leave. It is no surprise that Agatha Christie, Noel Coward and other pre-war luminaries made Burgh Island their second home.
