“A lovely stroll”

Nash Point Lighthouse
Certificate of Excellence

Attraction details
Owner description: For 175 years Nash Point lighthouse, designed by James Walker, the Engineer-in-Chief to Trinity House, has been keeping the mariner safe of Nash Sands, the sandbanks off the point at the entrance to the Bristol Channel. 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.

Park nearby and take a stroll down to the lighthouse along the cliff tops. It is a lovely thing to do. The sandwiches you can buy in the hut where you park the car are spectacular!!! One is a big meal.

“Went there with kids”
Reviewed August 20, 2012

Just happened to be passing when it was open and the kids loved it. The chap in charge was brill and very knowledgeable. But you need to be fit to get to the top. My friend got married there (I believe it is the only lighthouse in the UK which allows you to get married in it). Very apt location for the wedding as on the day it poured down and the foghorn kept going off. As a result he named his son Noah ;o)

“excellent day out”
Reviewed August 17, 2012

Lots to see at the lighthouse, the team were friendly and a guided tour with info sheets was given, along with a in depth talk at the top. Family enjoyed the unusual experience. Lots of steps, but can rest at the different levels.

“Great place to visit.”
Reviewed August 11, 2012

We are frequent visitors to Nash Point. In the summer we often take two "directors chairs" and sit on top of the cliffs overlooking the Somerset and North Devon coastline on the other side of the Bristol Channel. There is a snackbar with chairs and tables outside, plus a toilet. In summer, the snack bar is open most days and is run by Thelma, ably assisted by her cousin Edward who takes the car park money (£1.50). They make excellent mugs of tea, and wonderful Welshcakes and always give their customers a warm welcome. There are excellent walks in both directions along the coastal path, and a visit to the lighthouse is well worthwhile. One of our favourite places!
