The West Usk Lighthouse is a cosy bed and breakfast situated near the City of Newport, Gwent, at the junction of the Severn and the Usk Estuaries, overlooking the Bristol Channel, now also a small wedding venue.
Our guests come for a relaxing short break, though we do have some lighthouse enthusiasts who stay longer. We have had over 20 marriage proposals at the lighthouse. You can re-take your vows on top of the lighthouse, shouting it as loud as you want! We can arrange for someone to help you do this. We can take you in the Roller to the local full a la carte restaurant, with chilled champagne for the journey, or we can order flowers and balloons for a birthday treat.
The lighthouse is also suitable for small groups of family, friends and hen nighters. We have a waterbed and a couple of 4 poster beds, all en-suite facilities, with colour TV, and tea/coffee making. All the rooms are wedge-shaped. A stone spiral staircase takes you to the first floor where all the letting rooms are.
We also have a hot tub on the roof garden, which has a ' holiday in the sun' feel about it. You can relax there and watch the sun at dawn or dusk or follow a group of shooting stars on their way down There are barbecue facilities for anyone who wants to have a go. Great fun for groups. We also have an infrared sauna for detoxing or for pleasure.
We have a civil ceremony license for up to 25 guests.
We have 10 golf courses nearby, and of course the Celtic Manor was host to the Ryder Cup in 2010. We have negotiated discounts with many of the local golf courses. Cardiff is only 10 miles away, with all its attractions: new opera house, stadium, theatre, bay barrage & castle. Newport is 4 miles away, with its new Riverfront Theatre and the Transporter Bridge, the largest of its kind in the world, which can be seen from the lighthouse.
