West Usk lighthouse is a great place to spend a weekend. We were given such a warm welcome by Frank the owner when we arrived even though we were rather late . Our room was beautiful, it had a water bed which took some getting used to but was fun and actually very comfortable. It was so pretty, spotlessly clean... More

We stayed here for a night back in early December. We came a lot earlier than we said we would but it was no problem for Frank. He was a gentleman from start to finish. We dropped the stuff off and headed to the Y Maeron for food which is about a 5 min drive away. The food here was... More

I booked this B&B as a surprise for my partner's birthday, who had said he'd always fancied staying in a lighthouse! As we pulled up on the Friday evening the Lighthouse looked so cosy and welcoming, we couldn't wait to get inside! We were given a very warm welcome by Frank, the owner, and shown where everything was. We borrowed... More

I booked this as a surprise for my partners birthday and wow, what a surprise it was! The lighthouse is absolutely stunning, it is so unique and quirky and has so much charm about it, the minute I walked in I knew it was going to be a special stay. We stayed in the Cabin Room which had a sea/river... More

This is a very unique lighthouse situated on a pretty estuary. I found Frank to be welcoming, interesting and chatty though his wife not so much. Rooms are all different and clean, shower a little pokey but this can't really be helped due to the room rise/shape constraints. It's beautiful here but nothing to do, it's out of the way... More

My husband and I spent 2 nights in at the Lighthouse celebrating our 4th wedding anniversary and wow what a place to stay. The minute we arrived at the lighthouse we felt like we had stepped off life's merry go round into switch off zone - absolute bliss. We stayed in the waterbed room and it was amazing, the view...

My then girlfriend had always dreamed of staying in a lighthouse and as a surprise I booked the Wesk Usk Lighthouse for her birthday on 17th October. I couldn't have dreamed for a better reaction when we were driving down the twisty lane and she finally saw where we were staying. She was elated and so was I it was... More

Dear Frank & Danielle, Just wanted to say what an amazing place you have. You can tell it has taken years of hard work to get it to such a high standard. We have just had a FANTASTIC time at our son’s wedding (Ben & Emma). Frank’s breakfasts are the best we have ever had. You are delightful hosts, so... More

Like many I have a bucket list and staying at a lighthouse is high up on the things to do. After searching the internet I came across West Usk and booked the waterbed room (principal keepers room) for 2 nights. It is tucked away and located about a mile up a private road. Frank the owner is incredibly welcoming. If... More
