Lovely getaway! This lighthouse B&B is tucked away just outside of Newport and it is well worth the stay! Frank (who runs the lighthouse) greets you with a warm friendly reception and shows you your room and leaves you too it. I'd recommend taking your car if you were staying as the hotel is 'off the beaten track' quite literally... More

WOW! Talk about "I can see the lighthouse!" You're made to feel so welcome at this oh-so-special little place! Frank, the owner, is the perfect host (makes a breakfast to die for!), he's super friendly, a genuinely lovely man and full of information about the history of the lighthouse & places to eat & visit in the surrounding area.

Beautiful location for a getaway that really 'gets you away' from the day to day trials of life. The waterbed room is wonderful, we left the window shutters open and enjoyed the light of the full moon shining into our room all night. very romantic indeed !! We enjoyed a walk along the estuary and its true that there is... More

West Usk Light house in the south of Wales is not only an interesting location, but comes with all the comforts of home. The owners have a "can do" attitude and nothing to too much trouble for them. Even their wonder dog "Archie" is extremely friendly. The rooms are to die for, and the breakfast cooked to perfection with the... More

We had an absolutely delightful stay in the lighthouse. It is incredibly romantic and comfortable. The views were simply spectacular to wake up to. The owner, Frank, was wonderful: he was so kind and welcoming, recommended local places to eat, introduced us to the other guests and chatted with us, and even turned his car round and drove us into...

I took my girlfriend here for her 27th birthday. The lighthouse is located down a remote lane, where there is plenty of parking space. Frank called in the day to check if we needed directions. He and his son greeted us, then showed us around the Lighthouse. They recommended several places for dinner, we went to Y Maerun, about 10... More

Stayed her with the hubby, sister and her hubby and had an absolute ball! The track leading up to the lighthouse as previously stated, is bumpy and holey! All you need to do is take your time, and most can be driven around. From the minute you enter the lighthouse, the whole ambiance of the place is amazing. It's like... More
