Non-Tropical Paradise!
2021年11月 • 夫妻情侣
Never going to be able to sum up how amazing this place is in just a few lines so strap for epic travel ‘writing’ at its most mediocre!!! We’ll start with the trip over via the helicopter at Hartland Point…6 minutes of absolute brilliance, smooth flight, really friendly and helpful people at the…flight station(?), a very cool way to start the 4 day holiday to come! We were staying in The Old School also known as The Blue Bung, one bedroom, one living room, one kitchen, one bathroom, one resident Pygmy Shrew (of more later) and one view that can only be described as stunning!!! The Island itself is best discovered on your own terms with help from the various guide books that are in all the accommodations and in the tavern, just make sure you’ve got the right clothes on and off you go! Plenty of footpaths lead to plenty of little adventures! The bird life is spectacular (goes without saying really) the goats are great, the deer are graceful, the ponies are slightly intimidating (I don’t like horses, did you see what they did to Superman?!) and the seals can even make the most manly of men go a bit gooey! The tavern is great with a lovely, welcoming fire to greet you after a hard days falling over! Try a pint or four of ‘Old Light’, lovely stuff! The food is tasty and the shop stocks enough stuff for a nice home cooked dinner if you can’t be bothered to go out. Finally if you do find yourself staying in the Blue Bung keep your eyes peeled for Hercules. Two inches of pure rodent charisma! He’s partial to a sweet chilli flavoured crisp and likes to scale the sofa in search of crumbs. The little dude provides all the home entertainment you could need!

First winter visit
I absolutely Lundy ….it’s my happy place. I’ve usually stayed in Goverment House with friends and Castle Keep East with my husband in May but had never travelled solo before so this trip I was tucked up in the Radio room for a week and a day (fog stopped flight). The staff are all helpful and friendly as are the majority of everyone who stays. The generator is turned off sometime after midnight and is back after 6a.m. Lundy is a complete switch off from modern life where you can just ‘ be’…absolute bliss.

A Wild Week
We sailed on the Oldenberg into a strong wind, A bad crossing but the crew were very attentive with sick bags, blankets, tissues etc. Windy all week but varying amounts of rain. TIP If the wind is from the west walk the east side. Dined in the Tavern 5 nights. All my meat came from the island. Food metres not miles. There were a minimum of 4 veggie or vegan options each evening. Old Light bitter is a cracking pint. Not many migrant birds about but my natural history highlight was seeing and photographing a pygmy shrew. We left the island in bright sunshine and a NW Gale so the flew in the helicopter to Hartland Point Heliport.

Day Trip
Very nice day , very busy walking attire required also a good idea to stock up on snacks, lots of walking involved and breath taking scenery - however if going for puffins they only nest at the island in June, September is good for Seal spotting Dolphins joined the boat briefly on the way back which was very exciting.

Beautiful island but not the most accessible
Beautiful island. Went for a day trip to do letterboxing. The hill from the harbour is an awful climb as it is steep, but the rest is fine. The ladder at the pier is not fun, especially if you have a fear of heights and water. Next time, i think it will be by helicopter and staying for a few days.

A wonderful visit to Lundy, I enjoyed walking the path and the wonderful see views. I was lucky enough to to stay in one the castle cottages (Castle Keep East) which was a great base.

Lundy Island - a great place to escape
Spent 11 nights on Lundy at the end of August. As always a quiet and relaxing break with wildlife, walking and swimming. Kids as always loved jumping off the pier and fishing for mackerel. If you want a break that allows you to recharge, with great pub food and very helpful and knowledgeable staff, then look no further. It feels like home, because it is home - a small island with a big heart

What an inspirational location
Five adults and three children spent in part a very relaxing, occasionally energetic few days on this wonderful island. As residents for several days, the peace and quiet and lack of motor vehicles was a great bonus. The shop and inn provided most of our needs although a pre-booked grocery order (two weeks in advance) enabled us to self cater as well. The accommodation was in an impressive house with most mod cons available although one has to allow for taking care in the use of water and that electricity is not on 24 hours a day.
The scenery is dramatic to say the least, and apart from one wet day we had unbroken blue skies. Don't forget to try some of the walks but bear in mind there is uneven ground and often many steps to negotiate. Look out for the old lighthouse and church which are worth visiting.
The only negative comment is that the sea could have been kinder to us on our journey across, as choppy seas left most of our party the worse for wear with sea sickness. However returning by helicopter was another brilliant experience albeit at extra cost.
Our base in Ilfracombe was Mullacott Farm which is both convenient and most welcoming, and providing somewhere to leave the cars. Their packed breakfasts in these Covid circumstances were very generous.

Cheap beer and food in the pub and friendly staff. Also other visitors to Lundy were friendly. Only downside was the wind it made the tent noisy, i should have taken some earplugs.Geoff Woods.

Appalling management: visit Northumberland instead
I camped. Campsite was on a hill! Kept rolling off my mat. Noise from a diesel generator meant no sleep at all.
Toilets were shared m/f - no privacy
Shop failed to serve sandwiches or any food for campers. But miraculously food appeared for day trippers.
Shop failed to sell small camping gas canisters for backpackers or seasick tablets, even though people were ill on the ferry (which was built for the Rhine)
Water is/was undrinkable.
Bar kept running out of food, especially the one vegan option and one day even baked potatoes!
Island was taken over by people doing a birthday who took over the one pub for two of the three nights. Even less food for all and less places to sit.
Dogs kept on the island bark all night, kept in cages, only let out half hour a day. Reported to RSPCA. Staff completely okay with this, apparently.
Staff obsessed about people disturbing the seals even though dozens of companies in Ifracombe and online sell ‘swimming with seals’ as an experience.
This is money-making on a big level. Charged £28 a night for camping.

I was sorry to hear that you hadn't enjoyed your stay on Lundy. However, your review is an extremely skewed view of a trip to the island as past reviews will confirm. I note that all your other reviews are of a similarly negative nature. Anyone who has visited the island previously will know that whilst the campsite isn't perfectly flat, it isn't on a hill. The campsite facilities are indeed shared, as are many across the U.K. For a small offshore island, the shop is well stocked but can occasionally run out of certain things. However, so to suggest that there is no food available for campers is simply untrue. The shop provides provisions for visitors and islanders alike, sells both camping gas and seasick tablets and camping prices peak summer is £14. It's clear from your review that Lundy wasn't for you and I do hope you find a destination that better meets your requirements in future.
