Burgh Island to Starcross
Sunday 21st May 2017
Breakfast at the Burgh Island Hotel, then rather reluctantly checked out, got a taxi to Dartmouth, the ferry across to Kingswear, then the steam train from there to Paignton. A normal train from there to Starcross where I popped in to visit Dad and Janie for a bit before getting the train back to London.

Waved the girls off at Heathrow in the morning, then went back to Paddington to get a train down to Plymouth. From there a taxi to Bigbury and then the sea tractor across to Burgh Island! Spent a lovely afternoon wiling away the time in the idyllic Pilchard Inn and having a general wander around the island and the hotel, before dressing for dinner and lapping up the 1930s charm of the hotel in the evening.
