Maintenance week 2018

After such a great summer we have been down to Atlantic View for our annual maintenance week. Lots of jobs done including changing window hinges, painting inside and out, changing the sofas and cushions, thoroughly cleaning, changing batteries in smoke detectors, weatherproofing the fences and shed, boiler maintanance, PAT testing etc. Lovely weather this year, it was acutally enjoyable to be outside painting the fences.

All done for another year now.

New Sofas for 2019

New sofa and foot stall

Good news for visitors next year, we have just changed to sofas in the lounge, the old ones were showing signs of wear and tear. The new ones are very comfortable, enjoy.

Fireworks in Port Isaac on New Year Eve

We have just spent New Year in Atlantic View. Weather has been awful, it has rained almost continuously for several days. Fortunately we had a dry spell around New Years Eve and so the excellent firework display went ahead, and very good it was to - picture attached

There seemed to be more people down this year than last, and all of the restaurants were fully booked even on the night before New Year's Eve.

Owners update - November 2015

Lunch in the garden

We have all been down in Atlantic View for the annual maintenance week. The weather was fantastic and enabled us to paint the outside of the house and many of the walls. We also managed to put wood preserver onto the fences and shed, and to get a lot of routine maintenance things done. The boiler was serviced, PAT testing carried out for all of the electrical appliances etc.

One big change this year has been that we have changed the bed in the second bedroom. Whilst the old one was ok we tended to bang our knees on the frame and felt the metal frame was not in keeping with the first bedroom. We have now changed to a similar wooden frame to that in the first bedroom, which we think looks better and is more comfortable. You can see the new frame here:

With the weather being so good we also managed to have lunch outside al-fresco - excuse the cloths, we were painting when we weren't eating.

In the evening we had a very good meal at the Inn in St Kew (details provided in the "local info" section of the website). Food and service was great and they have HSD in wooden kegs - what more could you want.

Hopefully Atlantic View is ready for another good season next year.

Owners Update - March


We were down in Atlantic View this weekend (20th March) to get the cottage ready for the summer. Fortunately everything was in good condition but we took the opportunity to buy some new flowers for the garden, topped up the supply of wood pellets, change some lights in the bathroom that were looking corroded, cleaned the windows, installed a new stairgate. It was a lovely weekend with great sunshine.

We also had a lovely drink in the beer garden in St Kew at lunchtime and then a very nice meal in the evening.

The weekend also marked the arrival of Bosun - the house's dog. See attached picture.

Looking forward to our next trip down :)
