Atlantic Lodge, Sennen, Cornwall (Sleeps 1-24)

Atlantic Lodge offers superb self-catering accommodation which overlooks the fabulous white sand beach at Sennen. The property enjoys views of Longships Lighthouse and the Scilly Isles. It is a safe 5-minute walk, down through the sand dune valley, to both the beach and the coastal footpath.

Atlantic Lodge was built by the artist Harry Welch. The original house, Victoria, was constructed in the 1890s and then Edward was added during the early twentieth century. Many of the original features still remain. The house forms three separate houses, which link up internally via doors and corridors. Victoria sleeps 10, Edward sleeps 6 and Lizzie sleeps, 8 people.

Edward is primarily located on the first floor, which affords excellent views over Sennen Cove and its beach. Edward offers very spacious accommodation for 6 people. Downstairs there is a twin en suite room and upstairs there are two en suite bedrooms, one twin and one double. There is a very large living area which has fabulous views of Sennen Cove. This large room has several chairs and sofas, a dining table seating six people and a well-equipped kitchen area.

So that the views of the Scillies and Sennen Cove can best be appreciated, this is reverse style accommodation, with the kitchen/dining area and the lounge on the first floor and most bedrooms downstairs. The entrance hall to Victoria has the original Victorian tiled floor. On the ground floor is the master bedroom with en suite and king size bed. There is a second double bedroom, a twin and a bunk bedroom. The utility room houses the washing machine and tumble drier, in addition to a sink and separate WC. From here there is access to the back garden. The kitchen is very well equipped, with a dining table to seat eight. Two extra dining chairs are provided. The kitchen has fine views of the coast as it is on the first floor. Also on the first floor, the main bathroom has a wash hand basin, bath and separate shower. There is also a separate toilet. The lounge has plenty of comfortable seating and an open fireplace. 

Lizzie is the third property at Atlantic Lodge. It is our new addition and is of the same standard and style as Victoria and Edward. Lizzie sleeps 8 people. This bright and airy property is painted white throughout and adjoins the other two properties. The entrance hall has a slate floor, with a downstairs cloakroom, entrance to the lounge and stairs up to the first floor. The lounge has an open working slate fireplace, an oak floor, white flat screen TV, two sofas and chairs. There are French doors and a bay window. The oak kitchen is very well-appointed, with a slate floor, two separate sinks, two double ovens, a dishwasher, washing machine, tumble drier, microwave and all the usual gadgets. There is a lot of light through four windows and there is a door leading outside. There is also a walk-in pantry for extra storage. The central dining table can seat eight people. Upstairs, the carpeted stairway leads you to 4 bedrooms and the main bathroom. The double bedroom with en suite shower room looks out over the back garden and fields. Two twin bedrooms and one bunk bedroom share the bathroom which has both a bath and a separate shower.

Atlantic Lodge is an ideal place for a beach holiday, for walking the coast or to exploring western Cornwall. Penzance, the Tate at St. Ives, the Minack Theatre, St. Michaels Mount, the Scilly Isles and Lands End are all close at hand. Alternatively, Atlantic Lodge with its spacious accommodation, views and extensive gardens can be used to simply relax.
