Unique lighthouse accommodation with breathtaking sea views

Imagine staying in a lighthouse that has been keeping sailors safe since 1900! Argus Cottage is part of Pendeen Lighthouse complex with beautifully appointed accommodation, marine-inspired decor, parking and sea views. The cosy sitting room has built-in bookshelves and a feature electric fire. There’s a modern kitchen with dishwasher, utility room and a dining room for four guests. Two bedrooms, a king-size double and a single share the bathroom which has a wall-mounted vanity, bath and shower above.

Wildlife lovers, walkers, sailors and artists will love to sit outside on the patio and enjoy the company of seabirds and seals on the rocks below. The sound of endless surf dashing the rocks and the panoramic sea views have their own allure.

Part of Pendeen Lighthouse, Argus Cottage is one of two cottages that are part of the lighthouse complex managed by Trinity House. The fog siren has been disconnected although the lighthouse is still operational. Located two miles from pretty St Just and six miles north of Land’s End, it’s a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to experience a unique building on a Site of Special Scientific Interest in an Area of Outstanding Beauty. The South West Coast Path runs past the lighthouse providing breezy walks past sandy Portheras Cove. Neighbouring Geevor Tin Mine and Museum offers an educational insight into Cornwall’s tin mining history with a pub and shop in Pendeen Village.
