The West Wales/Pembrokeshire region

Laugharne sits on the banks of the Taf River in Carmarthenshire, South Wales and is where Dylan Thomas ” Wales' most famous poet lived.

It is an ancient town steeped in history housing the dramatic ruins of a Norman Castle. The Castle has been the subject of considerable archaeological investigation and gradual restoration and, with the well-maintained Georgian and Victorian gardens, is open to the public from April to the end of September.

There are a number of good restaurants and pubs in the village and you are only 10 minutes away from the fabulous beach at Pendine.

"Delightful cottage - would definatley stay again"

The cottage is away from the owners property so you have privacy - it has a small enclosed garden which was perfect for our dog. The cottage was lovely and clean and held everything that we may need - including tea, coffee and milk waiting for us on arrival. I cannot say anything bad about our stay - we were welcomed on arrival from the owner Sarah and we will be definitely returning next year. The village of Laugharne is only about 1 mile away and has lots of places to eat. We went to Pendine Sands to take our dog onto the beach which is lovely - our dog Ginny thoroughly enjoyed the long walks as my husband decided to walk the whole length - which I think is about 6-7 miles. Once again thank you Sarah for a lovely visit.

"Wonderful cottage and location"

This cosy cottage is the perfect place for those in need of a break. It's warm, clean and has a beautiful view over the rolling hills. Oh and the bed is AMAZING! We were fortunate enough to have a couple of sunny days which we made the most of by completing a walk around the lovely castle and estuary at Laugharne recommended by the owner. The clear night also made for a spectacular view of the stars - no light pollution here. The cottage and village is perfect for those wishing to escape from the city. Very relaxing. We would highly recommend

Thank you for your lovely review, we are so glad you found some sunshine and were able to see some of the lovely countryside around us. You are right about the stars here, it can be breathtaking on a clear night!

"Lovely cottage"

Beautiful cottage in beautiful surroundings. The view from the bedroom is stunning. Although the cottage is within the grounds of the owner's property, it felt very private. Would recommend it. … More
