About this title


This is the story of Tony and Beatrice Porter's renovation of the near-derelict and long forgotten Art Deco hotel on Burgh Island, after giving up their successful careers as fashion consultants in London's West End. Up to their necks in debt and with a massive program of repairs and maintenance ahead of them, they gradually labored to restore it to its former glory and into the beautiful, luxurious place it is today.

From the Inside Flap:

In 1986 Tony Porter and his wife, Beatrice bought Burgh Island off the Devon coast, with its near-derelict art deco hotel. Up to their necks in debt and with a mammoth task ahead of them, they gradually restored it to its former glory.
