Atlantic Rest Natural Burial is situated at Penlow Field, Woolley near the North Cornwall and North Devon border.
As you have probably guessed from the name - the North Atlantic Ocean is almost a stones throw away. On a nice bright day you can catch a glimpse of the sun flickering off of the sea; and even hear the waves crashing on to the beaches.
Postcode for satnav: EX23 9PP - this will only take you to the centre of Woolley - you need to follow the directions below from the green.
Travelling from Bude towards Bideford, you will pass through Kilkhampton and continue towards Morwenstow. You will pass the first Morwenstow junction on your left (the one where the 3 windmills are) then pass the Will Urquhart site on your right. Next you will pass the Eastcott junction on your left and then the next left is into Woolley (opposite the solar farm on your right) you can either turn in the first left there through the lay by which is the old road or just past there the next left is the 'proper' junction. It is just as easy to go through the lay by.
Once you have been past the Hartland junctions (there are 3) then you will go past the Westcountry Inn public house on your left hand side - it's after a 90 degree left hand bend where the tarmac is a orangey colour on that bend. Continue on and you will pass Welcombe Cross then you will take the next right to Woolley, you will have just crossed the border into Cornwall at this point. Woolley is sign posted from the main road and once you turn in you will see a large shed being built on your left.
Once you reach Woolley Cross:Carry on in to Woolley, and you will turn left at the green (as shown in the photo below). The road splits here and on burial days - we will have a black and orange sign out that says 'Please keep left for Atlantic Rest' follow that road around for approximately 300 metres, you will find our entrance on the right.
