Beach House Devon

Beach hut holidays in Devon simply do not get more luxurious than a stay at Burgh Island! Our beach house accommodation is nestled into the rock face, overlooking the sea. Staying at this luxury beach house in Devon, you’ll experience a true taste for the finer things, and perhaps learn to foxtrot like a true Flapper!

From the moment you arrive, you’ll be treated like royalty: that includes, wine, dining and dancing! Once you land on our sands, our famous sea tractor will carry you over the waves to our Art Deco haven and from there, you’ll be free to roam the island, dine in our onsite restaurants, or even the Grand Ballroom, and sip on something tall and strong in our Palm Court Lounge, looking out across the waves.


Steeped in history

Burgh Island is shrouded in history. In the Second World War, Burgh Island’s convenient coastal location meant the island would serve as a recovery centre for wounded RAF personnel. Since then, it has become an island retreat known for its stories of party past. From famous guests to being considered an institution of luxury, Burgh Island has always been infamous in its own right. In fact, the hotel was once featured in Vogue and the Island’s infamous beach house was originally built as a writer’s retreat for none other than Agatha Christie! Here, Christie wrote two novels set on the island, ‘Evil Under the Sun’ and ‘And Then There Were None’. 

Filled with luxury

The magic of the beach hut includes incredible views across the island and of the sea beneath. In your room, you can expect a stylish modern interior, a dramatic king-size bed overlooking the sea, a large lounge area with a cosy log burner and a large bathroom with a separate shower room. Your incredible stay at Burgh Island will also feature a private sun deck, a gorgeous outdoor hot tub, a variety of additional beds, extravagant living space and of course plenty of little extras once you arrive.

The beach house is also fabulous and pet-friendly, perfect for a Devon island escape with your four-legged companions. Take a stroll along the beach, bring a book to the most scenic point of the island, or simply curl up in front of the log burner with your furry friend and enjoy the delights of Burgh Island however you like.

Staying at Burgh Island

From onsite spa facilities to swimming in the sea, your Burgh Island escape will be fuelled with endless activities. Take part in some croquet, or a game of tennis, or perhaps if you’re eagle-eyed, your trip coincides with one of Burgh Island’s famous murder mystery events…

If none of that takes your fancy, you’ll find plenty of walking and cycling routes on the Island, and across wider south Devon. But of course, if all you’re here for is a life of luxury and immense relaxation, put on your best dress and lounge around your beach house like the star you are. Flounce over to our Palm Court Lounge for a deliciously stiff drink, and stroll barefoot along the beach, remarking on your stay at the most fabulous beach house in Devon!
