On our doorstep

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 interested in horticulture, ornithology, geology or marine biology, or you just love walking and wildlife, 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, a 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.

Some other local attractions are detailed below; just click on a picture.


Trenance Chocolate

Just outside Mullion, on the way to the Cove, is Mullion Meadows, where apart from interesting craft shops, an art gallery and a café, there is the Chocolate Factory and its Shop. All chocolates are hand-made, and suit all budgets and tastes, from simple bars and pocket-money bags, to luxurious truffles. They even do a sugar-free range, for diabetic people or those watching their figure! We provide a complimentary pack of Trenance chocolates, to our own specification, in all three guest rooms. Next door is the wonderful Honey Cosmetic workshop and outlet, whose hand lotion and hair conditioner will be found in our rooms, as well as bubble bath in the Pentreath Room.
