It is difficult to pin down why Lundy Island has such an effect on people.

It is true that Lundy is different from any other island and that it is a wonderful part of the country. Situated off the coast of North Devon, where the Atlantic Ocean meets the Bristol Channel with nothing between it and America. A natural beauty, remote and tranquil, without roads, cars or pollution.

Why not take a short break and stay in one of Lundy’s lovingly restored buildings. These offer visitors an extraordinary range in which to stay, from a thirteenth century castle, a late Georgian gentleman’s residence, Lighthouse, Admiralty Lookout and Fisherman’s Chalet. In all twenty three individual properties are available. Furnished in typical Landmark style for comfort and practicality, all have heating, hot and cold running water and many have the pleasure of an open fire or stove.

Summer is a gorgeous time to visit the island of Lundy. We have now made it easier to do so by having shorter summer breaks between Saturday 20th July to Saturday 24th August. As well as our normal week-long stays, we are now offering 3 night stays from Saturdays and 4 night stays from Tuesdays.

As an alternative the island has a well maintained campsite which will cater for forty people. Camping is being offered FREE during June when booking a period return ticket. The site is located in the centre of the village and is very popular with climbers and Divers.
