Burgh Island

Burgh Island is without doubt one of the most beautiful art deco hotels in the UK (possibly the world). Sitting just off the Devon coast Burgh Island exudes 1930's glamour.

Every room is different in size and colour but all have the luxuries a 21st century flapper might expect: crisp Beltramé linen, retro radios, luscious chocolates and bespoke soft furnishings. The marble bathrooms all have fluffy white towels and locally-made Burgh Island toiletries. The hotel features unusual and authentic furniture, original pictures, news clippings and archive photographs.

If you've decided to have an art deco themed wedding this is the venue for you. The hotel perform civil ceremonies, and although they have a limited number of bedrooms they ferry guests back the mainland at the end of the evening on their unique hydralic sea tractor (see below) which is an icon of the hotel.



























The famous Sea Tractor was designed in 1969 by Robert Jackson CBE (a pioneer of the nuclear power station programme in the ‘50s) in exchange for a case of champagne and costing £9,000 to build.
