When we arrived at the house the children were very excited to discover all the pirate toys and that they had been left a gift each. We also received a lovely welcome pack of sparkling wine and goodies.The house is lovely and has everything you could possibly need for a home away from home. The children loved the pirate themed bedroom and enjoyed spending time in the outside 'smugglers den' play house.There is a local beach which is apx 10-15 min walk through the fields, although we choose to drive to Polzeath most days (20-30 min drive). Tintagel is very close and handy for take away fish and chips! I would definitely recommend staying here, especially if you have children under 10.

The location next to the beach is ideal for our small grandchildren. Having 2 lounges is ideal for younger and older family members. The house is comfortable and furnished beautifully. The warm outside shower is perfect for the young ones returning from the beach. The house was spotlessly clean on our arrival, and the cleaners did an excellent job in the middle of our stay. We had a couple of maintenance issues on both of our stays. Last year the loft bathroom toilet flush was not working properly, the washing machine broke down and had to be replaced, and the septic tank had to be emptied during our stay...not a pleasant experience! This year there were continuing problems with the downstairs toilet flush, which despite a visit from the plumber remained an issue throughout our stay. However, these issues would not deter us from returning to Atlantic House. Overall a lovely holiday was had by all.
