Bed & Breakfast

The West Usk Lighthouse was built in 1821 at the junction of the Severn and Usk Estuary, overlooking the Bristol Channel! It is a circular building, one of its kinds. There is a stone spiral staircase which graces the slate bedded entrance hall, and the outside perimeter base is granite! The lantern room does not house the light anymore but now has seating and a door leads to a small balcony.

The letting rooms are all wedge-shaped, en-suite with a waterbed and 4-poster beds. Guests can bring in their own drinks to sip on the balcony where the hot tub is and watch the night time sky and the ships go by.

The lighthouse is romantic and very relaxing, really ideal if you want a good night sleep to re-balance or you want to take stock of where you are in life or you may just wish to be pampered.

A Rolls Royce car will take you to the local restaurant if you wish. You can go for walks and enjoy the local surroundings and attractions nearby. Cardiff is only 10 miles away with all the activities of a capital city.

There are some really good restaurants and pubs nearby, rated with Michelin stars or are in the Good Food Guide.

The lighthouse is also an excellent place for groups, family get togethers and hen nights.
