Atlantic House is very privileged to be set in a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) and Special Scientific Interest (SSI). If you are a horticulturist, ornithologist, geologist, marine biologist or you just love walking and wild life this is a paradise. Being just 10 minutes' walk down the lane to the cliff top, we are just moments away from seeing seals, basking sharks, peregrines and the very special choughs, as well as sandy coves and dramatic cliffs.
Just 2-3 minutes' walk and you will be into the village, where you will find an excellent restaurant, pub, cafés and a superb fish & chip shop, and above all the best pasty shop in Cornwall (Ann's Pasties). You can also discover the art of the Lizard stone (serpentine) turners which dates back to before the reign of Queen Victoria; serpentine can now only be seen and bought on The Lizard Peninsula.
Mullion Cove, Cadgwith, Coverack and Porthleven are just some of the local fishing villages close by where you can hire a boat for fishing, go diving or enjoy a lovely fish supper. Local crafts include Trenance hand made chocolate (some of which you will find in your room), Roskilly's delicious ice cream, honey making, Lizard ciders and wines and many art and craft studios.
The Lizard is within easy access of many of the major attractions of West Cornwall. Just a short drive and you will find yourself in Falmouth, St Mawes, Truro, Penzance and St. Ives.
Many popular attractions and National Trust propertiers are also within easy reach; these include St Michael’s Mount, Minack Theatre, Land's End, Sennen Cove, National Maritime Museum, The Eden Project, The Lost Gradens of Heligan and many sub-tropical gardens such as Trelissick, Glendurgan, Trebah and Bonython.
We have found that many of our guests have left realising that their next destination is only a short drive and wished they’d booked for a longer stay.
