Agatha Christie set her Poirot mystery novel “murder under the sun”, on an island just off Devon, which was based on Burgh Island. A tiny little sun trap of an island with very little on it expect a picture perfect 1930s hotel and a medieval pub called the Pilchard Inn, both of which are kept to this day, in pristine condition. The staff who run the hotel make sure of this and observe every standard to ensure that there guests are catered for. It is wonderful and has the best scones I have ever eaten! I had the privilege of getting to work on an event there, a couple of weeks ago and it was hands down my favourite events location, that I have been to thus far. I hope to return there some day as a guest.
