David and Frederick Barclay

Brecqhou Island, UK

Business magnates David and Fredrick Barcley bought the lease of Brecqhou, an island off the coast of Sark in the British Channel Islands in 1993. They built a gothic castle and the island was completely off limits to civilians until recently.

The stunning gardens took years of work and landscaping to complete, and now select visitors can see an olive grove, organic fruit and vegetable garden, vineyard and carp pond complete with Monet-style bridge. Additionally, there's a football pitch, helipad, orangery, chapel as well as a public house called the Dog & Duck.

The Barclay brothers are the co-owners of The Daily Telegraph and former co-owners of The European and The Scotsman newspapers. They own a number of well-known businesses including the Ritz Hotel in London, Littlewoods, and Yodel, while they also own property in Monaco.
