The Burgh Island Sea Tractor is a feat of engineering. Designed in 1969 by Robert Jackson and recently renovated to her freshly minted state, the Sea Tractor is the only one of its kind in the world, transporting guests across tides to Burgh Island where they can enjoy the art-deco splendour of the Burgh Island Hotel, or enjoy a drink in the historic Pilchard Inn.
The Sea Tractor runs for the guests of the Burgh Island Hotel, and members of the public can join the ride for a small charge each way. This type of tractor was most popular during the early 1930s
Burgh Island Hotel, was the filming location for the 2001 TV episode Evil Under the Sun, staring David Suchet as Hercule Poirot.
