Look at easyJet from Gatwick or Jet2 from Leeds-Bradford. You won't find anything cheaper, including by train.

Ferry from the Uk would take several days and be very expensive if there was one, which there isn't.

You could fly Ryanair to Pisa, from here reach the port of Leghorn and take the ferry to Olbia (Sardinia Ferries or Moby Lines).

Will you rent a car? If not from Pisa airport you can reah Leghorn by train.

Another option could be flying Meridiana, frm Gatwick to Florence and then Florence to Olbia. No idea abour prices.

Taking a step back from Santa Lucia :

When are you looking to travel?

OK to hire a car?

What sort of activities do you want?

Getting to Sardinia by ferry from the UK will be very expensive, especially crossing the Channel. I think that the Channel is the most expensive crossing in Europe. Ferry prices in Italy look like they are doubling this year. Best to fly, Jet2 flies to Olbia from Leeds, check the dates and prices.

Sardinia is a very good place for active tourism: canyoning, climbing, cycling, diving, horse riding, free fall, hayak, quad bike, sailing, scuba diving, skydiving, trekking, trekking and guided excursions.
