Atlantic House is very privileged to be set in a designated area of outstanding natural beauty and special scientific interest. 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, pereguins and 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, café’s and fish & chip shops. You can also discover the art of the Lizard Stone Turners which dates back to the reign of Queen Victoria and beyond and which can now only be seen and bought on The Lizard Peninsula. For 2011 the village has a new Farm Shop selling products from local farms and producers.
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 (which you will find in your room), Roskillies delicious ice cream, Lizard ciders and wines and many art and craft studios.
The Lizard is very accessible to many of the major land marks within West Cornwall. Just a short drive and you will find yourself in Falmouth, St Mawes, Truro, Penzance and St. Ive's.
Many popular attractions are also within easy reach, St Michael’s Mount, Minack Theatre, Lands End, Sennen Cove, National Maritime Museum, The Eden Project and many sub-tropical gardens.
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.
