Atlantic House, The Lizard
AA 4* GOLD with a Breakfast Award Atlantic House is in a beautiful location nestled down a really quiet country lane overlooking the Atlantic Ocean, 5 minutes’ walk to the SW Coast Path, 20 minutes to the famous Kynance Cove, and very close to the village, with its various shops, pubs and restaurants.
They are in a National Nature Reserve, a designated Conservation Area, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB), a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI), and surrounded by National Trust land. For guests interested in horticulture, ornithology, geology or marine biology, or who just love walking and wildlife and fresh air, this area is a paradise. Further, wherever one walks around here, one is never more than about half a mile from the wonderful Top House Inn.
The house itself is Edwardian, tastefully decorated and luxuriously furnished with pocket-sprung beds and sumptuous bedding. All three rooms are warm, bright and sunny, and have their own comfortable lounge areas; two have king-size beds, while one has a super-king bed which can be made up as two 3ft twin beds. All include Freeview TV with DVD, and an extensive range of quality refreshments.
Wine glasses, corkscrew, fridge, fresh milk, teapot, bottled water, hair dryer, bath robes, slippers, locally-produced toiletries (Honey Cosmetics) and handmade chocolates (Trenance Chocolates) are provided, and super-fast WiFi is available free of charge. Guests have their own extensive library of books of local interest, novels, general reading, magazines and local maps, together with a large DVD collection and several games.
The award winning breakfast includes as much locally sourced produce as possible, with breakfast meats supplied by the village butcher, eggs from three fields away, and smoked Cornish fish. Breads, preserves and cakes are all home-made here by Janet and Michael. Whenever possible we like to offer guests a complimentary home-made Cornish cream tea on arrival.
