    I can say with absolute certainty that my favourite holiday in recent months was spent on Lundy Island. The first advantage of this fascinating island is that it is very near where I live on the North Devon coast.

    Travelling to Lundy is a simple matter of a two hour ferry ride on the charming MS Oldenburg, built in1958 and still boasting a lot of the beautiful Deco features.

    The travelling part is not only stress free but enjoyable, our party consisted of two families, we ate bacon sandwiches, played scrabble and went out on deck to see the three and half mile long island come into view and what a beauty it is with seals bopping in and out of the water and the coastline teeming with bird life.

    Accommodation on the island consists of twenty three amazing properties, from a lighthouse to a castle and even an electric free property that sits by it’s self a mile and a half from the village, once a lookout now a lovely intriguing property that take in views out over to Wales and the North Devon and Somerset coastline.

    Our home for the week was Millcombe House a grand manor built in 1835, with dark furniture, floorboards and wonderful Persian rugs this was right up my street. The house sleeps twelve and perfect for a family holiday, as the children can run around safely inside and out, as the grounds make a perfect place for a child enjoy.
    On this trip we all enjoyed the freedom of being able to amble all over the island, climbing cliffs, swimming in the sea and family picnics while exploring caves and castles.
    Lundy is truly a place like no other!
