Burgh Island, including its iconic hotel and The Pilchard Inn, is up for sale for £15 million. 

Burgh Island, inspiration for many including Agatha Christie, along with its art deco hotel, the apparently haunted Pilchard Inn, a collection of other buildings and 21 acres, has gone on sale for prices in excess of £15 million.

Giles Fuchs, the current owner of Burgh Island, said: "Ownership of the Burgh Island Hotel has provided me with a wonderful journey and given me the true privilege of restoring and enhancing one of the most treasured tourist assets in the UK over the past few years.

"What we have achieved is an immense source of pride for all of us who have been involved and, in our work, we have always tried to ensure that the Hotel’s 1920s spirit remains just as vibrant in the 2020s.

"Having watched the hotel be reborn, survive the pandemic, and continue as a wild and beautiful oasis for visitors from across the world, I believe now is the time for me to step aside and allow a new chapter to emerge for Burgh.

"The sale includes the 14th-century Pilchard Inn as well as the Hotel, which remains an important part of Devon's history and I am excited to see what the future holds for this much-loved property."
