WINTER ESCAPES: Hide out in a lighthouse at the edge of the Earth

on in Travel

Because getting away from it all doesn’t have to cost the Earth…

Argus CottageStill got some holiday left to take at work but can’t afford to go abroad this side of Christmas? Why not ditch the plane and take a Staycation instead? Staycations – holidaying in the UK rather than going further afield – are a great way to take the stress out of your trip. And with so many amazing places to stay in the UK you’ll never want to leave again…

There’s something wildly romantic about the notion of kipping in a lighthouse for the weekend. Remote ramblings, open water views and the sound of crashing waves – there’s no better place to blast away those city stresses. Trinity House, the UK’s Lighthouse Authority, has converted over 30 former keepers’ cottages into holiday lets, dotted all around the coast.

One of our favourites is Argus Cottage at Pendeen Lighthouse. The Pendeen Lighthouse lies 6 miles north of Land’s End and 2 miles from St Just and the views really do make you feel like you’re at the edge of the Earth. Don’t believe us? Check it out for yourself…

GC articles show you one of four ways (the one in bold) to live greener…

/ Be a winner (not a binner) /
/ Turn up the style (not the heat) /
/ Love the trend (not the spend) /
/ Do it in public (not the car/plane) /
