My grandfather, Herbert Powell, owned the Korniloff Hotel after marrying his second wife, Ilse Buckingham, in the 1960's. We lived in the annexe that no longer seems to be there and I remember it as the happiest time of my life. I returned in May 2012 to find Bigbury-on-Sea little changed although there were some changes to the hotel and it is now being run as an old-age home. I will always remember the walks along the Challaborough cliffs and the time spent on and around Burgh Island looking for pirate treasure or smuggled goods that I was convinced must be there (and may still be). I was 10 years old at the time and travelled to and from school in Modbury every day on the bus. It is and will always remain, a special place for me.
