What a wonderful place to be to celebrate the 60th Birthday of my wife. We are absolutely thrilled with the way this unique cottage presents itself. Outstanding as well was the warm welcome Diane and her husband offered us on our arrival in the late evening. They even searched for us.Their hospitality couldn't be beaten. We will definitely return and if possible hope to be here again next year. The landscape and the sunsets are unforgettable. We really do feel at home here. Thanks a lot for everything.

Comfy cottage in idyllic setting. Walked coastal path to Cape, Cornwall and St Just. A17 bus to Penzance & A3 bus to St Ives were great for views and saved headache of parking. Polgoon Vineyard, thoroughly nice family. Tomatoes and peppers from honesty box up the road. Food in North Inn simple and tasty.

Our first stay at Argus Cottage and I'm sure we will be back. Lovely, welcoming home with awesome views. We recommend Sea Food Cafe in St Ives for a local fish pie meal. A trip to Cape Cornwall to visit the watch tower is a must. The lovely watch keeper was a full of interesting information.

17 March 2017
What a fabulous weekend! The lighthouse is a joy to stay in - warm, comfortable, cosy and spotless! It was hard to tear ourselves away from the warmth of the fire but the enjoyment that we got out of walks around Land's end, a ride on the train at Helston and a trip to St Michael's mount were worth it. Our only quandary is when to visit next!

We really appreciated the warmth and comfort of our lighthouse retreat. Thank you for a lovely break. RD, Leicestershire
1 February 2014
Second visit, a fantastic week. Gales, rain, sleet, hail made it an exciting and unusual week but enough sun to walk to Botallack and the Crown Mines on my 50th birthday. Cracking meal at the Tinners Arms, Zennar. Also had a great taste explosion at the Victoria Inn. Thanks for presenting the place so beautifully. The fog horn has been a wonderful, pretty constant companion which we'll rather miss. Heather's café in Pendeen is a heaven when you're walking on a stormy day. This is a great place and the people around are friendly. We can't wait to come back! JS, Epsom
1 February 2014

Only a short break at the end of summer. Weather find and a relaxing place. A fog horn on two nights were not bad. A beautiful place indeed. S&A, Swindon

Just about to retire and this lighthouse has been a perfect place to unwind - I feel restored. We loved the Minack, endured and enjoyed Wuthering Heights at its most atmospheric. Very happy to share the joys of St Ives with one and all. The Tate was just great, a roof top café and beach bar superb. M&M, Suffolk

Our sixth Pendeen Lighthouse stay, but first at Argus Cottage. Beautiful views. The weather was varied from sunbathing on the beach to rain and strong winds! Fog horn, sounding good as ever, Lovely walking from Porthairno to Cape Cornwall (the 300 bus was very useful). Watched the Trinity House helicopter landing on Longships Lighthouse which was amazing. Geevar Tin Mine was very interesting as was Cape Cornwall Coastwatch station, definitely worth a visit. Best of all were two evenings watching large pods of dolphin's right outside the lighthouse for a couple of hours, lots of leaping - AMAZING. Also seen the seal, choughs, kestrel and lots of sea birds. Just stunning. N&M, Somerset

A spectacular location - but you can see that already. So some trips to St Michael's Mount is a must - depending on the times, try and get a boat across early and walk back just as the Hoards Head over when the causeway opens. Walk down to Cape Cornwall is a must - allow 6-7 hours to have time to explore the mines and don't miss the one down a steep slope to the sea. All in all a wonderful few days. K&R, Surrey

My hubby arranged this as a surprise for my 40th birthday, I had no idea until we arrived. A spectacular location. Beautiful cottage, very well appointed and spotlessly clean. A generous welcome pack, very appreciated - thank you. Drinking pink champagne watching the sunset just magical. T&G, Devon

A lovely relaxing Bank Holiday weekend. Weather was lovely if a little breezy. Enjoyed the coastal path and seal spotting. We have stayed before in other lighthouses and always love the tranquillity and space. Fabulous standards as always. RF, Cardiff

We've got married since we last visited here in 2009. An Easter bank holiday has returned us after delicious dinner at the Gunners Head, cliff-top walks looking at Whales, no less an engrossing trip. We dream of this place and our first Friday fish and chips from St Just all year, so we'll be back again soon, whether here or next door, perhaps with friends in tow! TW, Bath

Our third visit to this cosy retreat. Clear blue skies and biting wind. Some magnificent walks and views up and down the Cornish coastline. Always a pleasure to return to the warmth and comfort of the cottage after daily treks. We are looking forward to next year's visit. Thanks. D&L, Liverpool

We couldn't make it last year so it's especially good to be back here in 2013. Another restful break (too short) in this lovely cosy, well cared for cottage. Thank you, we hope to be back soon. LH, Taunton
