All three photos above were taken on Burgh Island, which can be reached by foot from Bigbury-on-Sea at low tide and via the Sea Tractor when the tide is in. The photo on the right shows the Burgh Island Hotel, a grade two listed art deco hotel. To see the website for this spectacular hotel click here.
The photos on the left and centre show the only other building of significance on the Island, The Pilchard Inn. Right photo is the third generation Sea Tractor in action, it was recently refurbished, but was first commissioned in 1969 by a Mr and Mrs Waugh, the then owners of the hotel.
Centre photo looks north from the sand spit that separates the Island from the mainland, the sand has some restricted areas for dogs but not all of it is. The photo on the right is the view from Bigbury-on-Sea across the sand at low tide, looking towards Burgh Island.
