Hotel Breaks

When a short break away from the labours of daily life is all you really crave, the best place to pack up and head to is gorgeous Devon. Devon hotel breaks combine gorgeous coastal sights, striking UK beaches and a selection of incredible, fresh-caught seafood. When venturing down to Devon, book your short hotel break at Burgh Island – a fabulous party hotel on its own island.

Devon hotel breaks

Devon truly is one of the most captivating places in the UK, perfect for a little bit of TLC and relaxation. From the Jurassic coast to the National Park, Devon is abundant in striking scenery. The Jurassic Coast is a UNESCO World Heritage Site that stretches along the coast of Devon and Dorset and is home to some of the most stunning coastal scenery in the world.

Dartmoor National Park is a wild and rugged landscape that is home to granite tors, moorland, and rivers. It is a great place to go hiking, biking, and camping too, if you’re craving some exploration during your weekend hotel break in Devon. The Eden Project is another great Devon spot: a botanical garden that is located in two giant biomes. It is home to a wide range of plants from all over the world, and it is a great place to learn about the environment and enjoy a unique day out.

 

The most unique hotel break

For the perfect Devon hotel break, the most unique place to visit is the magical Burgh Island. Burgh Island is a tidal island located off the coast of Devon, surrounded by a gorgeous coast and romantic cliffs. The illustrious Burgh Island has been the centre of attention in Devon for nearly 100 years and its mystery lives on today, being accessible only by foot or the iconic sea tractor at low tide.

Burgh Island has a rich history, helping with war efforts, and housing wounded soldiers, and in the 19th century, the island became a popular tourist destination. Then in 1929, Burgh Island Hotel was built, creating a splendid party hotel location that was once featured in Vogue! Over the years, the hotel has seen many famous guests including Agatha Christie, Noel Coward, and Winston Churchill.

However, aside from its famous past, what makes Burgh Island so unique is its Art Deco theme. Stepping through the doors, you will be transported back in time to bygone years filled with flapper dresses, the most fabulous cocktails and all the jitterbugging and jiving your heart can take. From floor to ceiling, Burgh Island is covered in 1920s and 1930s charm and certainly makes for a memorable luxury hotel break in Devon. From sitting by the gorgeous coast to sipping drinks in our Palm Court Lounge, to dancing around our dramatic ballroom, Burgh Island provides a truly magical experience for every guest.
