Lundy is one of the most special places on earth. We have visited 3 times and each time we discover something new. Remote seclusion and a real escape from a hectic life. Wonderful long walks, superb wildlife including deer, seals, peregrin. Hearty meals in the...More

A beautiful and peaceful island. It was lovely to spend a whole week detached from the 'real' world - with no tv, internet, phone signal etc! Letter boxing was a great way to view the island, and took us to places we wouldn't have otherwise...More

A lovely two hour trip on the Oldenburg, to Lundy, followed by quite a steep climb to the pub and shop. Lovely pub and friendly staff but I would recommend taking a picnic as we ordered food, along with many others from the trip. An...More
