Atlantic House

A skip away from the sea in one of England's most beautiful regions 

Far to the West, the Lizard Peninsula is perhaps remote but warmly rewarding, a sunny micro-climate where choughs dance on the breeze and dolphins and seals swim offshore. Atlantic House is the perfect place to experience this area, with maps and binoculars always provided along with expert advice. 

There are just three guest rooms here, with superking, king and twin beds available. All have en suite facilities supplied with locally made toiletries. Caerthillian benefits from a superking bed (which can be configured as a twin), an en suite shower room and a panoramic sea view from the bay window, perfectly enjoyed from the two plush swivel armchairs. Kynance is a deluxe room with a king size bed and two easy chairs, and views over the Kynance Downs and to the village. Pentreath has a king sized bed with two armchairs making the most of its sea view, perfect for watching ships sail by. Pentreath also has a huge bathroom with bath, walk-in shower, his and hers wash basins and sea views of its own. Bedlinen is crisp, and comforts assured, with lightning fast wifi, freeview TV with DVD, and tea/coffee making facilities in all rooms, along with thoughtful little touches such as complimentary chocolates, corkscrews and wine glasses.

The south facing garden has panoramic sea views and a seating area just for guests. Breakfast is served in the dining room and is a splendid affair with quality linens, bone china and cut glass. Juices are fresh; jams, preserves and bread are home made, fish and meats are sourced locally, and all hot food is cooked fresh to order. The standard Cornish Breakfast includes a foot-long coiled chipolata sausage and a slice of Hog's Pudding, and the full range of conventional breakfast dishes and vegetarian options is often complemented by 'specials', depending on the whim of the chef (Michael).


Your B&B Hosts

Your hosts here are Janet and Michael Edwards, retired professional musicians, and their two cats, Flossie and Louis. The cats are not allowed into guest bedrooms or the dining room, whatever they might claim. Sometimes, the Edwards' daughter Sophie comes to help out: she is a professional high soprano, and you'll quite possibly hear her singing while she works. The Edwards have lived in Cornwall for more than 30 years and are more than happy to share their inside knowledge about this wonderful part of England.


Atlantic House is not actually on the coast, but it's certainly close: you can reach the sea in five minutes, and Kynance Cove is about half an hour on foot. Many guests appreciate being at a slight remove from the Lizard Lighthouse, especially if the foghorn is sounding! Lizard Village, with its restaurant, pubs, cafes and fish and chip shop, is just three or four minutes' walk away. The area is a haven for walkers, lovers of nature, and those interested in geology. Flowers and plants thrive here that are generally found only in much warmer climes, and the birdlife is spectacular. The coastal path is easily reached; just four minutes' walk in the other direction from the village.
