Argus Cottage is one of the more unique properties available for a romantic getaway, as it is located within Pendeen Lighthouse, which is currently operational. Offering enviable sea views, it provides a truly one of a kind experience in a beautiful scenic location.
This unique cottage is situated all on the ground floor, and features a hall, sitting room, kitchen, dining room and utility room.
The fully equipped kitchen provides a gas hob and electric oven, microwave, fridge/freezer, dishwasher and a washer/dryer. The comfortable sitting room has all the home comforts that guests may need during their stay, such as an electric fire, TV,DVD and payphone. Also, a travel cot and highchair are available on request.
There are two bedrooms, a double bedroom with a 5' bed and a single bedroom with a 3' bed. There is one bathroom.
The outside of Argus Cottage has a tarmacked area overlooking the coastline, and is surrounded by a 4ft wall, for safety.
For safety reasons, we recommend that children are supervised at all times, due to the cliff edge. Dogs welcome. Please be aware that Pendeen Lighthouse is a fully operational lighthouse, and an electric fog signal activates automatically, however ear plugs are provided.
Please note that access roads to some of the lighthouse sites are quite narrow, and there is the possibility of overhanging vegetation, because of cutting restrictions during bird breeding season. Also, visits by maintenance staff may occur at any time, due to the lighthouse needing regular maintenance. On- site parking available, plus additional parking 100 yards away.
Short breaks (minimum 2 nights) available off peak.
The immediate vicinity outside the cottage is a fantastic location on the North Cornwall Coast , and within an 'Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.' Also close by, is the South West Coast Path which winds around the headland, and through an area of Cornwall's oldest mining areas. A short walking distance are the beaches of Gwynver and Whitesand Bay.
A 5 minute drive away is Pendeen, where you can find a post office, pub and a cafe, among other amenities. Located 6 miles north of Land's End, and only 2 miles from St Just.
