We booked the day before going. We took a big picnic. Tha sail over was a bit rough. We were all ok. We arrived... More

Had a day trip to this rugged island, lovely for walkers and anyone who wants to get away from it all. Lots of birds and wildlife to see. Wear sensible shoes and take a packed lunch. The pub is nice but not cheap, ie: £4.50 for a portion of soggy chips. If you aren't to keen on the walk up... More

Visited lundy island yesterday with 3 friends and had such a great day! The bad weather didn't ruin it and we still walked around the whole island and saw most things we'd hoped to see including the puffins and seals! Definitely recommend for a nice day trip.

Lovely short break staying at Bramble villa West on the beautiful island of Lundy. Very peaceful with first class scenery. Would highly recommend it. Definitely a "get away from. It all" location.

Lundy is perfect for anyone wanting to take a break from the rat race. For the uninitiated, homework in advance is essential to focus on the timing of a visit. For those with specific interests eg bird watchers, spring and autumn migration periods are good. Puffins are around in numbers not seen for many years and are a delight to... More

We have just returned after a 3 night stay magical stay on Lundy. We have been for day trips before but felt there was not enough time on the island. We stayed in Government House, it was very comfortable and there was plenty of room for 5 of us (actually, the bed was too hard for me, but no one... More

This is an amazing island and place to stay. We boarded the boat at Bideford looking forward to breakfast we headed for the so called buffet which served everything unhealthy you could think of - advice pack a breakfast if you don't like bacon in white bread, sausage rolls and other fatty offerings - coffee was ok. We sat on... More

Forget your technology and step back into a place lost to most of us. The boat trip will take you to a place where the real world of birds, waves and wind replace the modern world. The island is great, quiet and has nature unspoilt by too many people. Be prepared, good walking cloths and forward, the weather can change!... More

We took the MS Oldenberg over to Lundy for a day trip.The island is worth the two hour boat trip, although we were lucky to have a seat on both journeys. the island is fantastic, wildlife and scenery was breathtaking. Would have love to stayed longer as another couple of hours would have allowed for all of the island to... More
