Lundy Island

Lundy is a small island some 10 miles off the North Devon Coast, and it has a long and interesting history.

We visited on a beautiful sunny summer's day and found the island to be absolutely charming.

On a wet and windy winter's day the picture would look much more bleak I am sure.


Lundy is four miles long and half a mile wide at its wides. She rises 400 metres up from the sea.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Great walks, remote and desolate
  • Cons:A very steep walk up from the sea
  • In a nutshell:A great place to get away from it all

    I owned a Lundy Island pony. They swim them from the island to the boat to bring them to the mainland. We used to say you could tell the weather by looking at the island "Lundy high, sign of dry"

    Sounds like an invigorating place. An island with grey seals, black rabbits, virtual puffins, its own species of cabbage, and "not short of manure". An interesting new page!

    What a wonderful place to visit, Grete. I love the stamp story!! If you are into bird watching, you should go to Fair Isle, they don't have puffin stamps, they have REAL puffins there!!! ;-) Have a great sunday!

    Grete, a thoroughly enjoyable page! I did not even know that this speck of land existed until now! As you say, it looks like a place that deserves some time to savour. Lots of excellent photos and informative tips - thank you for sharing!!
