The Experience

Argus is one of two holiday cottages available at the lighthouse and has a dramatic location on a granite headland on the North Cornwall Coast within a Site of Special Scientific Interest and an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty

The South West Coast path passes round the headland, passing through part of Cornwall’s oldest mining areas.

The lighthouse lies six miles north of Land’s End and two miles from St Just.

The lighthouse was established in 1900, electrified in 1926 and automated in 1994.

You may be lucky enough to spot seals on the rocks below the lighthouse headland, as well as a variety of seabirds. With banks of seasonal pink thrift and golden gorse, the headland is a perfect location to watch the sun setting over the Atlantic.

It’s worth mentioning The lighthouse does not have a fog signal, so regardless of the weather, you should get a good nights sleep.

Whilst the cliff edge is protected by a 4′ high wall, due to the location of the light house, please ensure that children are supervised at all times.

Up to two well behaved dogs are welcome (small additional charge per dog).

We had a fantastic stay! The cottage was lovely and cosy, the views were stunning and we look forward to visiting again in the future.

Comfortable cottage

Stormy weather all week, sea and wind ferocious. Managed a walk each day along coast path. Always a pleasure to return to a comfortable, warm cottage, then look out of the windows at the storms!

The main village of a stretch of coast drenched in industrial history, Pendeen itself is a linear settlement, with an attractive church and an award-winning pub, the North Inn. During the 19th century the village grew considerably – mainly to house miners and their families.

The white lighthouse of Pendeen Watch stands on a headland below from where spectacular sunsets can be seen. The adjacent Boat Cove is a tiny fishing cove and, a little further, Portheras cove is a remote but pleasantly sandy beach.

From here towards St Just, the coastline in littered with vestiges of a tin mining industry which spanned hundreds of years and finally died in the 1980s, with devastating effects on the local economy. A facinating area to visit.
