Your visit here will be a stay to remember. The Lightkeepers Watch has been rebuilt from the ground up and renovated. This completely self contained space is beautifully presented with a traditional nautical edge whilst embracing modern luxury.
One of the things that makes this cottage so unique is the breathtaking sea views. With large windows surrounding the entire cottage, this beautiful sea view is perfect to see all day long.
If that won't make your overnight stay unique, the private hot tub will! It sits directly outside the space and overlooks the open sea beyond. A drink in your hand, a loved one next to you in the tub overlooking the beautiful sea, what more do you need for a relaxing and romantic unforgettable moment?
The keepers watch has everything you need. It is equipped with a king size bed with luxury bedding. It is possible to add an extra bed if there are three of you. All the windows in the The Lightkeepers Watch have a beautiful outlook, even when you are lying in bed, perfect for watching the sun set or rise.
The French doors, to the front, open up onto the decked terrace where you can enjoy a cup of coffee whilst taking in the beautiful surrounds.
You will find the shower facilities and toilet in the Watch. The picnic tables on the banks surrounding The Watch are a perfect setting for alfresco dining in the beautiful summer evenings or for a delicious breakfast overlooking the sea. The picnic tables are also for your private use only.

How to get there
From Bristol airport it is 50 minutes drive by car. The train station is a 1.5 hour car ride away from the lighthouse. But you can also continue your journey by bus from the station.
More detailed information on how to get there you will receive after booking.
About the area
There is time to relax and unwind, but there is also plenty to do in the area. The city of Newport is only a 10-minute drive away. Cardiff, the capital of Wales, is a 30 minutes drive.
The Lighthouse Inn is a 20 minute walk away, and includes a steakhouse upstairs. Other local pubs include The Dragonfly and Y Maerun. A short drive away is Newport's Friars Walk which has many restaurants including Bistro Pierre. If you are looking for something special we would recommend Junction 28 (below), which includes a converted rail carriage in the restaurant - if you can, get a booth seat in the carriage.
In Cardiff, there are nearly 1000 restaurants to choose from, but The Clink is rated No. 1 and is perhaps the most unusual - it is operated by a charity inside Cardiff Prison and staffed by prisoners working towards employment upon release! Park House is based in a wonderfully Gothic building. If you are looking for somewhere in Cardiff for lunch, we would recommend Pettigrew Tea Rooms near Bute Park & Sophia Gardens - they do a charmingly informal afternoon tea, but it is best to book in advance for weekends.
We are closed indefinitely as a bed and breakfast but are taking bookings for outdoor weddings in our large and beautiful marquee and we have a small lodge called the Lighthouse Watch.
The small lodge is s/c, with wonderful views of the Estuary, ships coming in and out, birds and swans flying around. The tides come in twice a day and the River Severn is the second fastest tidal river in the world. There is also a private hot tub for the lodge's guests.
The lighthouse is a grade 2 listed building, built in 1821 and situated at the junction of the rivers Usk and the Severn, with views towards the Bristol Channel. A very unique lighthouse in Newport Gwent, which has been featured on many TV programmes such as Dr Who (episode 5, series 12) and the Hotel Inspector as well as My Unique B&B on BBC2 (episode 5, series 2).
We are friendly and Frank is an amazing host, nothing is much trouble for him. A car is needed for convenience but you can come by taxi. There are pubs and restaurants nearby. Newport is 4 miles and Cardiff about 10 miles away. There are lots of attractions and castles to visit.
Hope we will see many lighthouse enthusiasts stay in the lighthouse Watch. We wish you a great and abundant year.
Frank and Danielle
