Tucked away on the most southerly stretch of Britain's coastline, this cliffside beauty boasts incredible views over the sea towards pretty Cadgwith Cove whilst step inside and you'll find a luxurious, chic abode with an incredibly warm welcome. Downstairs, laid-back open plan living makes for a great social space for gatherings, whilst four bedrooms, set over two floors, offers perfect privacy with three bedrooms having en suites. Outside, there's plenty of garden space for relaxing or playing, with the ever-present scenery always ready to take your breath away. Perfect for families or friends, this lovely retreat is dog friendly too so everyone can enjoy this immaculate seaside sojourn.

Ideally located for exploring the Lizard, you're also set to make the most of the far west of Cornwall, from St Michael's Mount to St Ives, whilst the Roseland Peninsula is a must too.

Living and eating

Atlinto benefits from a heavenly open plan living, dining and kitchen space. To the front of the house, with stunning views over Cadgwith Cove, lies the 'Summer Room' with huge navy-blue corner sofa, two occasional chairs and a wonderful bay window seat, the perfect spot for whiling away an hour or two, gazing out over the ever-changing vista. There's also a cosy wood burner plus Smart TV with Sky Q.

Leading towards the back lies the 'Winter Room', a snug affair for more intimate gatherings with large leather sofa, original fireplace (for display only), occasional chair and another Smart TV with Sky Q. Glass doors between the two rooms can be shut for extra cosiness.

Beyond this room, spanning the back of the house, lies the kitchen and dining room which benefits from underfloor heating to keep toes toasty warm. The kitchen with central island is fully equipped with everything you might need to rustle up feasts, from the five-ring Rangemaster double oven to the large American-style fridge. In addition, there's a dishwasher, microwave, Magimix and the all-important Nespresso coffee machine.

The dining area, adjacent to the kitchen, is a wonderful space with glass doors that open out into the garden, perfect for warmer days when you want to bring the outside in. The impressive, Spanish antique wooden dining table comfortable seats eight, whilst skylights above adds additional light and creates an airy space.

There is also a good-sized utility room where the washing machine and tumble drier is kept.

Sleeping and bathing

There are four gorgeous bedrooms to choose from.

Starting at the very top, on the second floor, the master bedroom is totally swoon-inducing, with a majestic 'Bedknobs and Broomsticks' super king-sized bed, impressive, vaulted ceiling, dual-aspect windows with wonderful sea views, and a glorious freestanding slipper bath and en suite loo.

On the first floor, you'll discover three further beautiful bedrooms. The first has a pretty, French-inspired king size bed with rattan headboard, original feature fireplace, occasional chair, chest of drawers and stunning sea views from double windows and has an en suite shower room. This room faces east so witnesses the most incredible sunrises.

The second bedroom is a bijou double brass bed with sky light, large chest of drawers and garden views. There's also an en suite shower room with separate loo.

The third bedroom is a super sweet twin, perfect for little ones or friends, with pretty garden views and original feature fireplace.

All of the bedrooms have Emma mattresses and hypoallergic New Zealand wool duvets and pillows to ensure a blissful nights' sleep.

You'll also find a separate loo on the first floor, whilst on the ground floor there's a shower room - perfect for washing sandy toes or muddy dogs!

Outside space

Just wow! With as much space outside as inside, the garden is a real asset to this incredible home. To the side of the house lies a large table and chairs for eight plus a Weber barbeque with views of the cove, the perfect spot for dining. To the back of the house, take the stairs leading up from the dining room glass doors and you'll find a tucked away seating area, perfect for moments of quiet, whilst in front of the house lies a tiered cliffside garden, accessible by crossing the hidden-away public footpath that runs in front of the house - do take care moving around the cliffside garden. Here you'll find a stone table and seating, the perfect spot for drinks as twilight descends.


Set at the end of a dead-end lane, there's off road, private parking for two medium-sized cars.

Babies and children

Babies and children are very welcome at Atlinto. A highchair is provided and kept in the utility room. Please bring your own cot.


Atlinto welcomes one well-behaved dog. Please note that the garden is not enclosed so your dog should always be supervised. Please note, there is an additional fee per dog, per week or short break.

In the Area

Set in the pretty village of Cadgwith Cove on The Lizard, Atlinto is perfectly positioned to explore the most southerly region of the UK. From the house, you can take the path down to the village, meaning it's just a short stroll for a revitalising dip in the turquoise waters of the Cove or an atmospheric meal in The Cadgwith Cove Inn. From here, you can also join the South West Coastal Path towards Lizard Point and Kynance Cove in one direction and Coverack in the other, both dramatic and beautiful stretches of coastline where you might catch a glimpse of dolphins, seals and sea birds along the way. Pop in the car and take the pretty country roads to discover exquisite sandy beaches, from Coverack with its safe, shallow cove to the wild and dramatic Kynance Cove - also a fabulous spot for sunset watching. Other hot spots include Mullion Cove, Lizard Point, the pretty village of Helford and the impressive Trelowarren Estate, not to mention Roskilly's, where both the ice cream and farm animals will be a hit with children. Further afield, you can head west towards St Michael's Mount, Penzance and out towards Land's End, whilst make for the North coast and St Ives is a must for its beaches and shops. The Helford River is dotted with sub-tropical gardens such as Trebah and Glendurgan, whilst the seaside town of Falmouth and along the Roseland Peninsula is well worth a visit too.

Never-ending luxury and open-plan living offers the dream escape from it all at our secluded oceanside abode overlooking the stunning Cadgwith Cove...

We know how gorgeous our retreats are, but don’t just take our word for it – here’s what previous guests say about Atlinto:

Absolutely beautiful cottage in a stunning location. Loved the eclectic comfortable interior. More than enough cutlery, utensils etc. Infact the first holiday let that I’ve stayed in that I’ve thought, if I had to, I could do a dinner party here and there would be more than enough glasses, plates etc. Also the first time I’ve not washed cups, plates before using as it was so clean.Stunning garden with so many little nooks to sit. Beautiful bedlinen and towels and comfy beds. Four generations stopped here and it fulfilled all our needs. Could sit in the picture window all day and never get bored of the view. Can’t wait to return. Simply stunning.

Our septuagenarian leaves feeling spoilt with memories to savour

Thank you!

A wonderful location , remote but accessible, very comfortable but you still felt a world away from the hustle of everyday life and bustle . The village is everything you imagine from a cove fishing village. Fresh crab sandwiches from the shop caught by local fisherman. The Cove pub is a real gem. Great food, friendly service - very authentic.

Atlinto is a magical place just above a very quiet and scenic cove far away from the tourist buzz. The house is beautifully finished and decorated providing you with a home away from home!

How lucky we feel to have found Atlinto. What a privilege to have spent our honeymoon in this gorgeous place. We had many enjoyable day trips to the Lizard Peninsula and into St Ives, but we were always so excited to return to Atlinto. The photos do not do the retreat and the stunning cove views justice. I could go on and on, but to put it simply - what a special place we will never forget.

We had a wonderful stay in the house - thank you so much, it was perfect. See you soon!

We had a wonderful time staying at Atlinto, walking everday, Kynance was really stunning and we loved the long sandy beach at Loe Bar. There were so many places to sit and take in the view of the coast from both inside and outside the retreat. We will come again.

Thank you for enabling us to have a wonderful holiday together. Beautiful house, loved the view, paintings, cushions and underfloor heating! We enjoyed seals, sunrises, sea, sunsets, gannets, the coastal path, the garden, and most of all, our time together.

We had a wonderful stay. We all thought that Atlinto was fantastic. It was hard to leave it. We have been home for 2 days now and are missing it already. We walked the coastal path to Kynance Cove, and enjoyed Falmouth and St Ives. The house was so homely and is beautifully decorated and many memories were made. Would recommend to families of all shapes and sizes. We will be back again!

A wonderful stay - beautiful views and a cosy house in the most magical of settings.

What a wonderful place to spend a 70th birthday celebration. Everything was just perfect and could not have been better. We cannot wait to visit again!

Glorious house with the best view. We had a magical week here and were very sad to leave. Can see this becoming a firm favourite for family holidays in future.

Lovely house in great location. Lots of interesting outdoor spaces.

A lovely house and Cadgwith is a great village, especially on barbeque night. We liked having plenty of space, both outdoors and indoors. We also liked the many sun traps, and of course the secret bench overlooking the cove, with amazing views of the sea. Thank you!

We had a wonderful stay at Atlinto - a hidden gem! We would definitely go back.

This place is the best! We have been all over Cornwall and always come back to Cadgwith. Finally we have stayed here - amazing! A big thanks for everything!

Thanks for sharing such a beautiful home, it is a truly magical place! We really enjoyed our stay. The views are just beautiful and the house caters to every comfort for a relaxing break. We loved the welcome hamper, and bubbles, it was much appreciated!

Atlinto is gorgeous We were so comfortable and the easy access to town was unbeatable. We have visited many fishing villages but have never had the pleasure of staying so close and see the magnificent views from each window, which was lovely.

Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us. It is quite a special place. We loved how peaceful it was, sleeping with the windows open and hearing the ocean. Atlinto was so welcoming.

Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with the most dreamy views with us this past week. We have spent a wonderful time making lots of happy memories here. After the past couple of years which meant we were not able to see some of our family. But here we were all able to come together again, with the children enjoying time with both sets of grandparents which has been incredibly special. We have loved the space, with a place for everyone to have their own time. Here you have created such a special place, we have really appreciated the eclectic artwork too. Thank you!

Atlinto is a stunning house in a beautiful location overlooking Cadgwith Cove. We very much enjoyed our stay and hope to visit again.

First of all, Thank you. Atlinto is a gorgeous place and you guys have done a fantastic job making a home away from home. We had to rearrange this holiday twice due to covid lockdowns. With a family full of toddlers, this is the first holiday we have had since the world changed forever and this week has be incredibly special and so much of that is due to Atlinto, Cadgwith and Cornwall as a whole. Looking forward to coming back in the future.

We spent a very special week in this lovely, comfortable home. We enjoyed the location, walks and scenery in this beautiful part of Cornwall.

We enjoyed a wonderful Christmas break at this beautiful and special home. Thank you for your hospitality, we hope to return one day.

Wow, wow, wow! What a sanctuary! How can words express the magical and alluring nature of this fantastic setting. An out of orbit experience. So many beautiful memories. A slice of heaven on earth. An idyllic setting with emerald reflecting on the stone, an early morning remedy for the painful and awful year we have just experienced - we were so burnt out before we came here. We are so fortunate to have had such a dreamy few days in this home from home. We went to where the bee dances on the cliffs and listened to the melody for saxophone No 10. It will be a retrograde stop when we have to return to our home away from this Cornish milk of youth. We are so incredibly fortunate. Such an honour to have spent time here in such luxury with such gorgeous furnishings. Glory be to God for dappled things. Superium!

The cottage was lovely and the views and walks were spectacular thank you.

Lovely location and a beautiful home to stay. The views are just exceptional and their is nothing you could want for as the house is very well considered for visitors. Booking process and support from boutique retreats was great. Thank you so much for such a lovely stay... Worth taking your favourite foodies items with you as local shops are a bit of a way..

Atlinto is a perfectly positioned slice of heaven. The immaculately decorated interiors, the views and the gardens make it a perfect retreat - we enjoyed every minute of it. It was hard to leave but we are happy in the knowledge that we will return.

My friends and I were absolutely blown away by this beautiful property and the location. The house was so light and airy. It was really tastefully decorated and we loved the artwork. There was lots of comfy gorgeous seating in the house and plenty of hidden corners in the beautiful garden (again with ample seating and dining space). The beds were also super comfortable and the house was well stocked with everything we needed. I could go on, but suffice to say, it was absolutely perfect and we would wholeheartedly recommend it to others.

Amazing thanks!

Wonderful and comfortable
