As today is World Ocean Day – an internationally recognised celebration of the sea that takes place on June 8 every year – we thought it only fitting to choose a cottage of the week with a nautical connection. Besides, every celebration needs a great venue!
Few venues are as impressive as the appropriately named ‘Atlantic View’ in St Just, Cornwall. Situated on top of rolling hillside, with views the delightful hamlet of Carnyorth on one side and commanding views of the Isles of Scilly and the Atlantic Ocean to the other, it really does offer the best of both worlds.
You’ll find a coastal path just half a mile away from your front door, which provides the perfect opportunity for exploring this World Heritage area. Other nearby maritime attractions include Land’s End, Penzance, St Ives and Sennen Cove with its expanse of white sand and premier surfing conditions.
Nearby St Just can cater to any practical demands you may have, though it also provides a delightful on-land location to explore with shops, art galleries, pubs and restaurants galore.
Atlantic View itself is no less stunning than its lovely surrounds. A three-storey detached Victorian holiday property, it offers fantastic heritage with a host of contemporary comforts. You’ll find an open fire and wood-burning stove, a large kitchen with Aga, Belfast sink, granite worktops and tiled floors along with Victorian style bedspreads. More contemporary attractions include TV, DVD and Blu-Ray player, Wi-Fi and a children’s play area with climbing frame/swing, slide and Wendy house in the large enclosed garden to the rear.
If you’re looking for somewhere to gain a greater appreciation of the ocean then Atlantic View comes highly recommended. However, it’s no-less recommended if you’re looking for unrivalled comfort and relaxation in one of the UK’s most beautiful locations.
