Why we've chosen The West Usk Lighthouse

The owners are passionate about conservation and have spent half a lifetime restoring this 200 year old lighthouse. The building has secondary glazing and fire doors help to keep heat in. Low energy light bulbs are used throughout. Food waste is composted and used in the garden. Waste is separated to recycle as much as possible. To reduce the amount of plastic waste, miniatures are not used for toiletries, but rather refillable dispensers. Water is metered and consumption is monitored. Rainwater is collected and used in tubs for plants and vegetables. Local and organic products are purchased as much as possible. To contribute positively to the local area and community development, the owners are very supportive of local charities and Newport’s community events.
