Owned by the same family since 1959, the Atlantic Rest site has been officially open since 2004. Atlantic Rest Natural Burial ground is a peaceful site that offers both ceremonies and burial plots. With wooded areas and an open field, the site looks out towards Bude and the sea.
From Atlantic Rest:
“We have looked high and low for several years for suitable land locally to open a Natural Burial Ground of our own; to provide a solution, not just for ourselves but for all others who feel the same as we do […] Penlow field has been owned by my family since 1959, until recently it was under the ownership of my late grandfather Cyril Hawkins. It has been a very long and often difficult journey, to obtain planning permission to open a Natural Burial Ground here – but we have made it.”
Why we like Atlantic Rest: It’s a small site that’s been kept in the family for decades, with a focus on the right environmental practices.
