Situated near the city of Newport you'll find the West Usk Lighthouse, a cosy bed and breakfast and a small wedding venue.

Built in 1821, it is unique among lighthouses. All the accommodation is within the building. It is quirky and comfortable rather than luxurious. The West Usk is perhaps the strangest house around, found at the end of a very long stony and bumpy track - it is an unusual example of its kind, built to a unique design; not tall as most lighthouses are, and considerably bigger in circumference.

The entrance hall is slate bedded and all rooms are wedge-shaped; there is a stone spiral staircase in the centre, right above a collecting well, which is now our wishing well!

The lighthouse has long been a favourite with the media; Cosmopolitan magazine once labelled it "one of the most romantic in Britain", and we have been featured in most National Magazines and Newspapers, as well as international newsprint. The Independent also included the Lighthouse as one of the 50 best B&Bs. We're no strangers to TV either; we've been featured in programmes such as 'The Hotel inspector in 2008, This Morning with Eamon and Ruth Holmes included us in their Special Destinations feature. You can watch the last piece that GMTV filmed with us on March 27th this year if you click here . More recently you might just have spotted the Lighthouse when it was visited by a time travelling friend? Yep Dr.Who really paid us a visit.

Weddings - The Lighthouse is also available to hold Civil Ceremonies. They can be held downstairs in the large Dining Room, which has a sea view as well as landward view, with seating for 20 guests. You can also have the ceremony in the slate bedded Entrance Hall for 10 people, with the spiral staircase as a backdrop. Look in our gallery for wedding photos.
