The West Usk Lighthouse, Newport, Glamorgan, Wales
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 we are licenced for civil ceremonies for up to 23 guests.
The lighthouse is also suitable for small groups of family, friends and hen nights. We have a waterbed and a couple of 4 poster beds, all en suite facilities, with TV, and tea/coffee making. All the rooms are wedge-shaped and 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.
he 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 22 guests. You can also have the ceremony in the slate bedded Entrance Hall for 10 people, with the spiral staircase as a backdrop. As we are a B&B, once a booking is made, the Lighthouse will be entirely at your disposal for 4 hours on the day, preferably between 12pm-4pm. You can bring your own refreshments for afterwards.
The cost for the venue during the week from Monday to Thursday is from £450 (please ask for a quote as price varies depending on number of guests), plus the Registrarís fees, which will be paid directly to them when you book your date.
