Atlantic Rest Natural Burial

Gazebo Gallery

New for 2020.....

We are very pleased to have now completed the installation of our 5.5m x 5.5m larch gazebo.  This will provide shelter for ceremonies if families wish or just general shelter whilst people are visiting the site.

Everything looks a little brown and muddy at the moment but it will soon look beautiful when the weather dries up and some wildflowers get chance to grow.

** Winter Project **  We are going to be creating a rockery and herb garden to the lower side of the gazebo in the cultivated soil - this will be a haven for the bees in 2021.

Now we have a couple of benches in the gazebo...

Well our winter project became a spring project but we now have a lovely rockery in front of the gazebo.  The next step is to plant herbs within the rockery for the bees.

Our gazebo has had a nice new wooden shingle roof - this will last for many years to come.

Here are some of the herbs in the rockery - these are really flourishing now.

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.
