Burgh Island Hotel
Those who can, stay at the Burgh Island Hotel, built by filmmaker Archibald Nettlefold in the 1930s. It’s an art deco masterpiece – full of period furniture, distinctive deco trim and period colours – with glorious views over the sea, island and mainland. Staying here, you can sleep in rooms that once welcomed Agatha Christie, Noel Coward and a string of politicians, dignitaries and 1930s socialites. For maximum nostalgia, a black tie and evening dress is required to dine at the Grand Ballroom.
