The Olive Branch

Guest House


A warm welcome awaits you at The Olive Branch, a Georgian Grade 2 listed building of immense character, just a short stroll from the harbour, offering award winning AA 4 Star Gold and Michelin listed accommodation in this luxury boutique, family run bed and breakfast.

Having been completely renovated and refurbished and beautifully presented throughout, each of our guest rooms is individually decorated to exceptionally high standards offering uncompromising luxury throughout so that you are bale to truly relax. All our double and twin rooms have stunning sea views. We have a varied breakfast menu, all freshly prepared to set you up for the day ahead.

The picturesque harbour is steeped in legends of pirates, wreckers and smugglers and has retained much of its old world charm. There are inns dating from the 15th century, narrow winding streets, colourful cottages, souvenir shops, galleries, tea rooms, a lifeboat station, aquarium, restaurants and breathtaking coastal scenery. The berth for the Lundy Island ferry is a 2 minute stroll away. Coastal cruises and sea life safaris are available. Verity is a stainless steel and bronze statue created by Damien Hirst. The 20.25-metre (66.4 ft) tall sculpture stands on the pier at the entrance to the harbour. There really is something for everyone here!
