First time on Lundy in over 30 years. I've never stayed on the island and many of the supply boat trips don't really leave enough time, so it's worth waiting for one of the 12-hour-round trips from either Bideford or Ilfracombe; this gives sufficient time...More

Lundy is small, windswept and barren. It's also charming, beautiful and has a unique character. The pub food is good and the accommodation is Spartan and basic in keeping with the landscape and setting. As long as you understand that small isolated island communities can't...More

Visited Lundy with the first sailing of the season. The voyage on board the 57 year old MS Oldenburg to and from the island was a treat. Purchasing a walking guide on board allowed us to explore the island as comprehensively as possible in the...More

Stayed four nights in March. Nice accommodation (beds very comfortable, cooking facilities fine), no wi-fi and intermittent phone signal, so a get away from it all break. The silence is amazing. Good walking (more than you'd think for such a small island) and the wildlife...More

Generally anytime from April to July. May is a good month as the weather tends to be better then.

Hi, the standard way to travel is via the "Oldenburg" during summer.... unless the weather is bad. Then you have to travel by helicopter. Private charter is not cheap, but if you don't want, or can't sail, it could be money... More

No, the ship is an easy 5 minute walk from the car park. Once you've purchased sailing tickets, these are either posted to you or they can be collected on the day
