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

Been many times and stayed in all except Millcombe , Hammeners and the old light where my favourite stays. The old school a close second. Pub is friendly and the real hub of the island. Lower east path is spectacular in the summer and pondsbry in the winter.

Spent our second ever week on Lundy this summer. A truly unique destination. If the idea of sailing in a small (but beautiful) 1940s boat to a tiny, fairly wild and often foggy / windy island in the middle of the Bristol Channel, home to seals, puffins, dolphins etc. appeals to you then Lundy may be the place to visit....

A truly wonderful place. From the helicopter to get us there, to the marvellous food & drink in the Marisco tavern. Our accommodation in the lovely Castle keep cottage was so cosy & warm thanks to the wenlock coal stove. Brilliant blue sky & 14 degrees on the 1st of December was an added bonus. This place is so well... More

I had the distinct pleasure of being invited to celebrate a significant birthday with a friend and a group of her friends in Lundy and I have to say it was one of the most enjoyable trips I have had. We stayed in the rather grand Millcombe House which overlooked the dock where the Oldenberg would come in on occasion... More

Me and my partner went to Lundy by Helicopter, and stayed in one of the high standard self catering properties for a short break. A lovely island, peaceful, great walking and wildlife. Pub is cosy with good basic food. The Lundy Lamb is definitely a dish I will be having again.
