Environment

Our central heating system's boiler is very efficient as it is only 2 years old and is serviced each year by qualified calor gas engineers. Heating thermostats help us keep the temperature down. We use a lot of energy efficient lightbulbs and we make sure that as many lights are turned off to save on electricity. Our letting rooms have showers except for one. Towels are changed only if guests ask for them.

We use as much biodegradable products as we can, and recycle newspapers, clothes, shoes, bottles etc. We always buy organic milk and free range eggs for our guests. We have a 23 ft Mongolian yurt in our grounds which is available for groups, for retreats and educational uses. We have a family of swans in our reens, and guests are encouraged to walk to the local pub on the sea wall and take our dog with them for company! Our garden is kept as natural as possible, with nettle plants, dandelion and wild flowers. We are hoping to start a small wood near the lighthouse with the farmer's consent and may be our guests will contribute by buying a tree when they come to visit! We encourage our guests to visit our new wild life trail which is across the estuary and learn about conservation.

Community

We support the local community by making the lighthouse available for schools and colleges so that their students can have an experience of what it is like to live in the round conditions of the lighthouse. Art students and photographic students base their projects on the architecture and scenery around the lighthouse. Primary school children have their lunch here just like in the story of the lighthouse keeper's lunch. We have supported many local artists by displaying and helping them to sell their work at the lighthouse. We are involved in charity events, both as participants, fund raisers and we also donate to charity auctions. We support many charities such Action Aid, Save the Children, Oxfam through standing orders every month.

We always support local initiatives, and network every month with local businesses through meetings, breakfast lunches and exhibitions. We support small retailers as much as possible, green grocers, garden centres, farmers etc and we buy many products from the local market. We use local self employed tradesmen for maintenance work. All our guests tend to eat in local pubs and restaurants and we encourage them to share cabs there and back. Guests visit local attractions, and either return or tell others about us and the local community.

The story of the provider of Lighthouse accommodation in Wales

We moved to the Lighthouse in 1989 after seeing a small advert in the Exchange & Mart, two years prior to that. We fell in love with it on a first view, and after a few days in London, we decided we wanted to quit our jobs and make our home in Wales! Little did we know that it also meant endless hours renovating it and lots of money was needed to restore and to maintain it. The lighthouse has 18 rooms including 10 bedrooms and we only let 4. We have had an incredible amount of publicity from newspapers and television programmes and we were featured on "The Hotel inspector" in 2008. We are the main hotel on the Laterooms.com TV advert 2013. We also have a wedding license for up to 23 guests, not including the bride and groom.
