Atlantic Rest Natural Burial

* Giving something back

We got the 'giving bug' back in 2008.  When Tom and I got married we had already been living together for a year or so, and were lucky to have most things that we needed at that time.  One of our friends was receiving treatment in Exeter for Leukemia and Tom had used the services of the Devon Air Ambulance, and we live in Cornwall.   We decided then that we would like to support those charities. Instead of receiving wedding gifts, we asked for donations - so that we could in turn give it all to charity.

We split the money between the three, 50% went to E.L.F. 25% to Devon Air Ambulance and 25% to Cornwall Air Ambulance.  They received a total of £2,625.15 between them.


Since creating Atlantic Rest we have wanted to support local environmentally friendly projects when we can.  

To date we have given money to support the following: 


2017 -  Bude Community Orchard at Neetside - £50 for planting a 'Cornish Gilliflower' apple tree

2018 - Bude ReFill Station tap on the Triangle - £75

2019 -  ReFill Shop - £500 for their nut butter machine 

2020 - Hosting of the Cornwall Bereavement Network website which I manage at present for the network 

2020 - Bude Toy Library - £250 

2021 - The Woodland Trust - £65 (£5 for each memorial tree planted)

2022 - Eastcott Defibrillator fund - £250

2022 - The Woodland Trust - £30 (£5 for each memorial tree planted)

We can't always guarantee to be able to give something, but we like to do something each year if we can.  Please get it touch if you know of an environmentally friendly project that we may be able to contribute too.

If you are visiting our website because you are due to attend a burial with us - please read the following.


Thank you for reading, we understand that this may be a difficult time for you but please read to the end as it will benefit your overall experience on the day.


There will be two temporary signs out in Woolley, the first is a floor sign that indicates you need to turn left, this is a black and orange sign.  You will then reach our banner that will be at the end of the lane.


Parking is limited at Atlantic Rest. If you know that there is likely to be a high number of people attending the burial - please arrange to car share. This doesn’t need to mean from your start point; but can be done from very near your destination.  There is a very large lay-by just after you turn off of the main A39 into Woolley.  Please park there if necessary, and ride down to the site with others.


Please do not in any circumstances drive into Woolley and leave your vehicle on the green (where the first sign is) or on any verges nearby - we have a good relationship with the locals, that we need to maintain.


When you get to the end of the lane, please stop and wind your window down to receive instructions of how and where to park your vehicle.  We manage the parking as best we can but it does require your cooperation.  We ask people to reverse park where possible, so that you can all easily filter out when it is time to leave.


We do have overflow car parking but it is limited.


When parked and congregating with others, please be mindful of other vehicles manoeuvring.


There is a gravel path through the main part of Penlow but you will likely need to walk on the grass too. Please note that high heels will sink.


If you require assistance with mobility - we do have a scooter that we can use for you.  You will only need to sit on it and we will operate the scooter.  Please call in advance if this is required - 07775 726 907.


Thank you for bearing with, and reading this till the end.
