Lundy can be experienced by staying there, or by doing the day trip from Ilfracombe or Bideford. I turned up on spec at Ilfracombe, and, following the advice given, drove to the car park on the opposite side of he harbour, to park for £3 or so. Don't be fooled - it's a little walk back to the town and... More

I've been to Lundy Island a couple of times in the past for a day trip - that's only four hours on the island if you get the boat out in the morning and back in the afternoon. This time stayed for 3 nights in one of the properties - Millcoombe house. Absolutely perfect. A beautifully kept Georgian house -... More

I am a big island person so despite only being in North Devon for the weekend was very excited that there would be an Easter Saturday Crossing. The boat is quite a challenge as others have said as they do pack em in so you have to be in line early for both legs to get a good seat outside.... More

After a bumpy crossing, lots of people sick and not enough seats we had a good time on the island. Good food at the pub and helpful staff. Not sure how much of the rarer wildlife anyone saw but we didn't expect to see much so weren't disappointed. A much calmer crossing back but still not enough seats. With such... More

Incredible windswept walks, with views that are beyond description. The all time best get away from it location. No crowds, you might just come across someone when the boat is in. Best ever few days we have had. Explore it and discover the nature, plants, birds, seashore life and mammals in abundance. We will be back to experience the different... More

This was our second visit on Lundy. Last year we stayed in The Old School which was lovely & cosy & only a short walk to the Marisco Tavern. I thought that would be hard to beat but I was wrong for this year we stayed at Castle Cottage, this had truly amazing views from the window seat that I... More

Have been here many times but to truly appreciate the island you must stay. Great pub has its own beer . Seals common and grey but its the birds thst make it. Puffin are the highlight but being an island anything can drop in. Sit up top on the oldenburg and keep your eye on the horizon but if its... More

I arranged a surprise Valentines weekend visit with the Landmark Trust flying over by helicopter. For those not aware the Trust have for 50 years preserved and restored many buildings and funded that by renting them out. Early in the Trusts life they took over the running of the island and have done an amazing job of restoring and adding... More
