Although many adaptations have been made to Atlantic House over the years the essential Edwardian character of the house remains. Whilst we have done as much as we can to make our house as accessible for all, we are unable to alter some aspects without making fundamental changes to the structure. For example all our bedrooms are on the first floor and it is impractical to install lift access to these, therefore we will not be able to accommodate those with severe disabilities. However, being a small business we are able to provide a personal service and assistance where necessary.
There is parking in the unadopted lane outside, which is unlit and has an uneven surface. Although we do have lighting outside the house and torches are always available for walking up to the village (3/5 mins walk).
Assistance is offered with luggage from the car and if you are arriving by bus please let us know and we will pick you up from the bus stop in the village. The local bus service is The Truronian T34 from Helston to Lizard.
