Lundy in the Bristol Channel is a magical place with one pub — and a lot of puffins. Stay at the former signal and watch station, Tibbetts.

INSIDER TIP: Gen up on your Scrabble skills. There’s hardly any phone signal, no TV and no electricity.

DETAILS: Sleeps four, costing from £261 for four nights, landmarktrust.org.uk. Helicopter to Lundy from November to March, £119 return. MS Oldenburg sails from Bideford or Ilfracombe from end of March to October, £67 return.

La Source cabin in Herault, Southern France, is an attractive spot from which to get back to basics. There’s no electricity and the shower runs on rainwater.
