In 1977 a rare plant, the tuberous thistle (Cirsium Tuberosum), was found growing around the lighthouse. Nash Point was the last manned lighthouse in Wales. The lighthouse keepers left on 5 August 1998. Nash Point formally opened its doors to the public in 2007 so why not come along and see this wonderful lighthouse and the stunning scenery around about it from a new perspective? Fog Signal The fog signal is sounded at 14.00 On the first Saturday and third Sunday of each month, weather conditions permitting. Tours of Nash Point are organised under licence from the Corporation of Trinity House. « less

The lighthouse itself is open in the afternoon on Sundays during the summer and we had the chance to climb it, look at the lamp and admire the view - and meet two friendly lighthouse keepers. We even managed to arrive as they were testing the foghorns, which apparently happens on the third Sunday of the month. You can walk... More

A very interesting and photogenic lighthouse with the added interest of fog horns. The rock formations add to the interest and all within a short walk of ample 'cheap' parking with the opportunity to chat with the interesting car park octogenarian (minus one year ;))

What a wonderful place to stay for a week! The weather was good and sunrise and sunset spectacular. The long climb up the lighthouse is rewarded with excellent views and a walk on the beach and cliff tops is a must. Accommodation is pretty good but no en suite. spectacular views from lounge and bedroom where you can watch the... More

Words can't adequately describe what it's like to stay here. We stayed in Ariel which is meticulously maintained and extremely comfortable, we were greeted with a lovely hamper. There are a number of walks and places to see and some lovely pubs nearby serving top quality meals and hospitality, particularly tje Plough and Harrow in Monknash. We will do our... More

Chris Williams and his wife did so much to help like setting the venue up providing me... More

Beautiful place. Private car park which charges £1.50, and also has a little shop where you can get a drink and piece of cake etc. The lighthouse is just a short walk from here. Lovely scenery, with cottages that you can stay in. You can go inside the lighthouse but it has unusual opening times (think it was 2pm -... More

Brilliant location for a summer day relaxing. Only £1.50 to park along the cliff area (plenty of place to park and set up some chairs). The lighthouse is a few minutes walk from the parking area. There is a fee to enter the lighthouse and a few guidelines (closed shoes is one item that caught us). There are also cottages... More

This little gem has superb views over the Severn Estuary, there is ample parking (private carpark) and the possibility of renting "keepers" cottages as holiday homes. My eldest child is currently looking at Lighthouses and navigation, so we have been traveling to various lighthouses that are open to the public, so she can see the differences in architecture and what...
