Only recently has it been possibble to get a boat from the Somerset side of the Bristol Channel out to Flatholm.
We sailed over on 'Westward Ho!' leaving Weston at 9am and returning at 6.30pm - but timing is totally dependent on tides.
We had an excellent day - the wardens all made us feel very welcome and were were given an interesting and informative tour of the island - leaving several hours for us to explore on our own. If you are a 'Geocacher' then there are several out there!
There is a small shop, museum, bar (!) and teas and cofees and snacks are available from the Farmhouse. There are loos there too. The wardens were very happy for rucsacs etc to be left in the visitors room whilst we went off to explore.
I would advise taking a packed lunch as sandwiches etc are not available. If it rains there is plenty of shelter - but I would advise taking a book if the the weather looks iffy!!
We really enjoyed the day - cost £24 for the boat plus £5.50 landing fee per person.
