A very warm welcome from Frank who made us feel instantly at home.For anyone looking to try a waterbed before buying one or just interested in what one would...

We had one of the most relaxing and amazing weekends at the lighthouse. At first a bit tricky to find but when we arrived we were left in complete Aw. This is such a unique, quirky and welcoming place. Our room (Cabin Room) was small (which we knew) but has plenty of space for a couple. And it had the...

Went for my husband's birthday weekend treat and took the children. We stayed in the family room. As soon as we pulled up outside of the lighthouse we were excited. It is so beautiful as is the surrounding area. We were greeted by the owner Frank who is lovely. The hallway itself took our breath away with interesting memorabilia. We...

Quaint and Friendly, a romantic getaway for a couple who enjoy the fresh and sea air. The owner Frank was very friendly and accommodating. We stayed in the 'Waterbed room' which had lovely views and the comfiest bed. We could use the hot tub at the top of the lighthouse at any time, which was lovely. The room had a...

Stayed here over the weekend with my wife. Absolutely breathtaking views and lovely place to stay. Frank is a lovely man and host - his beautiful dog Archie is a good team player. When we parked our car Archie ushered us up to the front door! Gorgeous dog. We stayed in the four poster bedroom and I can honestly say...

I booked the lighthouse for 8 people for 3 nights via holidaylettings which clearly West Usk owners must have knowingly registered their property with. I was quoted £510 for 3 nights and a deposit was secured of £150. The owner had not contacted me by the next day to confirm, so I contacted her. She then said I would have...

What a fantastic place to visit. We stayed in the Cabin room which has everything you would wish for including a raised four-poster bed, an en-suite with power shower and the most fabulous estuary view out of both the bathroom and bedroom windows. Frank is very welcoming, friendly and helpful and cooks one of the biggest and best breakfast every...

Our group of five - including two pre-teens - stayed for a night and had a blast. The host was fantastically friendly and provided a great breakfast. He even let us go hiking with his super friendly collie, which the kids loved. The kids also loved the Dr. Who artifacts (a tardis and a dalek), and we all loved walking...

We had a wonderful weekend at West Usk Lighthouse- definitely one we will remember. Frank is a superb host. He recommended a restaurant (Junction 28) for us to eat at on our way to the lighthouse, and greeted us on arrival. We had the Waterbed room with superb views across the Bristol Channel and it was spacious and airy. The...

Imagine sleeping in a real lighthouse. Even better sitting in the lantern room at night watching the stars and reading a book, Better still sitting in a hot tub on the roof garden. Or checking out a tardis wondering where we would time travel to. Or maybe even saying Hello to one of the original daleks, which doesn't seem so...
