Croquet Hotel in Devon



The croquet lawn is currently closed until further notice due to resurfacing work. The rest of the hotel remains fully open. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.


The Burgh Island croquet lawn in the grounds of our hotel is a great opportunity for guests to enjoy a game of croquet whilst taking in the idyllic Devon surroundings. A game that is more intellectual than physical, the best croquet players usually excel in draughts or cards, meaning croquet can be enjoyed by everyone regardless of their age.


There are few things more quintessentially English than a perfectly-manicured croquet lawn and here at Burgh Island, we are proud to own one of the most picturesque in the United Kingdom. Nestled deep in the south Devon cliffs and with dazzling sea views, the lawn sits at the front of the hotel grounds, with mallets and balls available from reception.
