Lundy Island

Lundy Island

  • Tranquil island life
  • Fantastic marine & wildlife
  • Perfect getaway

Lundy Island lies off the north coast of Devon where the Bristol Channel meets the Atlantic Ocean.

There is nothing between Lundy Island and America. The island is made of granite and is three and a half miles long and half a mile wide. Completely unspoilt by modern living it is a haven of tranquility and wildlife.

Lundy offers visitors an extraordinary range of buildings in which to stay, from the 13th century castle, a late Georgian gentleman“s villa and a lighthouse to the Tibbetts and fisherman“s chalet.

People who have holidayed here come back year after year having found the special qualities that the island has truly unique from anywhere else. Whether you go to completely relax, paint or watch the wildlife you will also find during the summer months that the island Warden will offer walks, talks and snorkelling safaris to help visitors enjoy the wildlife of the Island.

Most of the Island is a Site of Special Interest and the seas surrounding it are England“s only statutory Marine Nature Reserve, you will see basking sharks, seals, puffins, sika deer and wild goats.

Visitors are carried to Lundy on the MS Oldenburg, Lundy“s own ship. She is a graceful motor vessel, fast, comfortable and built on traditional lines. Below decks she retains her original panelling and brass fittings, but has been skilfully modernised to provide heated saloons, bar, buffet, shop and information centre. Departures are from Bideford and Ilfracombe and take approximately 2 hours.
