About Us

Your hosts here are Janet and Michael Edwards, retired professional musicians. Sometimes, our daughter Sophie comes to help out: she is a professional high soprano, and you’ll quite possibly hear her singing while she works. We have lived in Cornwall for more than 30 years and are more than happy to share our inside knowledge about this wonderful part of England. We take great pleasure in cooking, including providing really high quality breakfasts, and in hosting our discerning guests in luxurious accommodation which is appointed in the style that we always look for (but rarely find) when we stay away from home.

30th June 2018: A house full of returning guests; we have a lot of those, but this is the first time that we’ve had repeat guests in all three rooms! We all had a glass of Buck’s Fizz to celebrate.


Flossie and Stanley

Flossie and Stanley are very much part of the Atlantic House family. Flossie’s disabled older half-brother, dear Louis, died of a heart condition in May 2020, and Stanley joined the family soon after. Flossie is taking a long time to get used to Stanley, and seems to have forgotten that she was a pest to Louis when she was younger! Their friendly and enchanting characters charm many guests, but we are mindful that some guests do not like cats, or have an allergy, so they are not allowed in the Dining Room, or in the guests’ bedrooms (although they will try to tell you differently!).

What our guests say

Michael and Janet made us feel like good friends

“Michael and Janet made us feel like good friends from the moment we arrived. They were very helpful as we were deciding where we wanted to spend our time in the area. They also taught us some things about Cornish traditions, which was a lot of fun.”

Nothing is too much trouble

“This was our second visit to Atlantic House and during the winter they have put a lot of effort into improvements which have really made this a very attractive B & B. Nothing is too much trouble, Janet and Michael are excellent hosts and the breakfast options are really outstanding. As far as we are concerned, there is nowhere to compare if visiting the Lizard, and we look forward to another visit as soon as possible. Thank you both for your care and dedication in making every guest feel welcome.”

Simply the best

“Simply the best B&B that we have ever stayed in! Perfect location, perfect room, perfect hosts and perfect food. Lots of little extras that made this stay so enjoyable. We will return and would recommend to anyone.”

Fabulous breakfasts

“After a stressful time recently we needed a good rest, healthy food and exercise. All of which were provided in abundance at Atlantic House where chef/proprietor Michael conjures up fabulous breakfasts and co-proprietor Janet ensures that the accommodation is second to none (four star hotel standard). The view from our room was spectacular so sitting comfortably in the large bay was a joy in itself. Coast path walking available literally from the front door. Our hosts were friendly and helpful, providing everything we needed and more!”

Beautiful b&b with excellent hosts

“A beautiful b&b with excellent hosts on the edge of the world. Mesmerising view from the bedroom sofa. Skip down the lane to the coast and Kynance Cove, words are not enough. Make sure you have the warm sunny weather that we had and nowhere on earth is better.”
