Poets Cottage is a romantic retreat tucked away at the end of a small terrace of three cottages on a quiet lane near the centre of the village of Laugharne. It is just a stone’s throw from the 12th Century Castle and the Boathouse where Dylan Thomas famously wrote and read his work. This is a comfortable retreat for two (or three if you have a babe in arms). The cottage is compact but with everything you need including Wi-Fi. Downstairs offers space to relax (while still in company with the cook) and opens onto an enclosed patio with table and chairs to enjoy alfresco dining.
Dylan Thomas Boathouse and Writing Shed has a long history associated with the water trade of the estuary but became famous as the home of Dylan Thomas from 1949 to 1953 - the last four years of his life. He worked in the boatshed, writing some of his most famous works there looking out over the water, and the influence of this ’heron priested shore’ is evident in his work.
Laugharne Castle is a ruin which dominates the town riverside. First built in the 11th Century as an earth and timber structure, it was built in stone in the 13th & 14th Centuries, turned into a Tudor mansion in the 16th and now for over 20 years has undergone painstaking archaeological investigation and restoration. The magnificent Georgian and Victorian gardens overlooking the river Taf were an inspiration to the two great modern writers, Richard Hughes and Dylan Thomas - in fact there is a turret room in the castle grounds which overlooks the estuary, laid out as Dylan Thomas used it. Beach 5 miles. Pub and restaurant 350 yards.

Cosy and clean and in a good location. Friendly area. We really enjoyed our stay and would have given 5 points if washing line had somewhere to attach it to, the stair gate worked and you could see in the bathroom mirror which needs re-siting. Just 3 little niggles, but otherwise lovely little holiday Cottage.

Our accomodation was great, and we had a great holiday. The Cottage was a brilliant base from which to explore the area, and Laugharne is a wonderfull place to stay I only gave 4 out of 5 stars because of a couple of very minor things which are now fixed and I do not wish to highlight here.
