    This is where we stayed 13 years ago and we returned with another couple to celebrate a 60th birthday this week. This tiny island is where Agatha |Christie wrote two of her books and has been the scene for some films. It gets cut off by the tide and so the price of a stay includes a formal dinner.... unless you want to time it so the sea tractor can bring you back!

    M240 ZM25 2.8..... a little bit of pink vignetting with this lens.

    I should also say that it's a 1930s themed hotel and remains true to it's era!
