West Usk Lighthouse Review

Overlooking the Severn Estuary, this extraordinary bed-and-breakfast is one of the most romantic places to stay in Wales. Owners Frank and Danielle Sheahan spent a decade renovating the nearly 200-year-old structure. The wedge-shape bedrooms (arranged around a wishing well) are filled with natural light. Some have four-posters; one even has a waterbed. Take in the sweeping views of the surrounding countryside from your room, or enjoy the whole vista from the rooftop hot tub. Danielle is a qualified Reiki therapist and offers treatments from massage to sessions in the floatation tank. Those who don't mind roughing it might enjoy the Mongolian yurt on the grounds (£105 per night). The lighthouse is a 10-mile drive northeast of Cardiff.
