Lundy lies off the coast of North Devon, where the Atlantic ocean meets the Bristol Channel with nothing between it and America, a granite outcrop, three and a half miles long and half a mile wide. In the hubbub of the modern world it is a place apart, peaceful and unspoilt.
Lundy attracts many visitors, both for its peaceful surroundings and scientific research. The waters around it are England's only statutory Marine Nature Reserve.
The seas around Lundy, are home to wildlife ranging from grey seals and lobsters to pink sea fan corals and habitats including reefs, sea caves and sand banks.
A selection of websites about Lundy :-
"Beautiful place, great food, great beer and lovely staff. what more could you want for a weekend retreat. nice comfortable bed, spacious, clean and warm. The bathroom was modern and immaculate. TV, tea / coffee making facilities, bottled water and bathroom robes were very nice touches
The food choice at breakfast, lunch and dinner was superb and very varied, something for everyone.
If you like real ale the "Hoops Best" at 4.8 abv & £3-40 a pint is what it says, the best, but each pint slides down the throat far to easily so beware!!!
Would not hesitate to go back again and again and again.
Centrally located for all local attractions and nearby towns and the scenery around this area is breathtaking.
Give it a go i am sure you will not be disappointed. good discounted rates during their quieter period (jan & feb) so we have been told but please double check this with them 1st " Nov 2012
