Description from owner


A lovely detached holiday cottage 10 minutes drive from Pendine Beach and set in its own courtyard just a mile outside of the village of Laugharne in Carmarthenshire.

There is an enclosed courtyard garden which can be accessed via the front door or the French doors off the living area. The owners are happy for you to enjoy their large well maintained garden and the 5 acres of pasture land they own (subject to grazing animals).

There is off road parking for two cars.

Just 8 miles from Carmarthen, Laugharne is famous for it's association with Dylan Thomas-Welsh poet and writer. You can discover the magic of Laugharne with three of its famous attractions, all associated with the great Welsh poet and writer Dylan Thomas.
* The lovely two-mile Dylan Thomas Birthday Walk is the setting for one of his best loved works, Poem in October, in which he vividly describes a stroll around Laugharne on his 30th birthday.
* When Dylan and Caitlin arrived in Laugharne they dreamed of living in the Boathouse, set idyllically on the Taf Estuary. Dylan lived there with his family from 1949 to 1953. The Boathouse is now a museum, containing lots of memorabilia and much of the original furniture.
* There's not a pub in Laugharne that can't claim to have some Dylan Thomas connection. But it was in the airy bay window of Browns Hotel that he spent many happy lost afternoons, drinking his pint of Buckley's, writing, reading the papers, and bantering with his drinking companions. Now the hotel has been restored and reborn as a five-star boutique hotel and oozes a subtle 1940s/50s glamour.

There are also some interesting shops, restaurants and pubs as well as the magnificent Norman castle.

A little further down the coast you will find Pendine Sands with a 7 mile beach. Aberglasney Gardens, the National Botanic Garden of Wales and Ffos Las racecourse are also all within easy driving distance.

Wonderful trip to laugharne perfect for all the family. Hosts were welcoming and cottage really comfortable in a beautiful setting, Pendine beach is stunning. Had the best nights sleep in a long time... Will definitely go back.

“Packwood cottage”

Reviewed 23 Oct 2017

We had a great stay at Packwood cottage, the cottage is lovely and has everything you could need. The well thought out little extras are a great touch, there was milk in the fridge and complimentary toiletries in the rooms. We brought our dog with us and there is a large garden and a field at the rear of the property which you have the run of which was great. The host was very pleasant and made us feel welcome, we had a great stay and would definitely recommend Packwood cottage to anyone.

Owner's reply: Thank you so much for your review, I am so glad you enjoyed your stay! We look forward to welcoming you all back any time!! :)

“Highly recommended”

Reviewed 17 Sep 2017

We enjoyed a lovely weekend in Packwood Cottage and would highly recommend it to anyone visiting the area. It is minutes away from Laugharne by car where you can enjoy lovely long walks and sample the lunches, cakes and coffees that the nearby cafes and pubs have to offer. The cottage was ideal for our two sausage dogs Dudley and Maisie with walks on the owners land and an enclosed garden space to yourself to stop them from wandering too far. We had a lovely welcome upon arrival by Sarah and were delighted with how well equipped the cottage was. We couldn't have asked for more! Thank you for a lovely stay, we will definitely be returning x

Owner's reply: Thank you so much for taking the time to post your lovely review. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay and would love to welcome you back any time!! :)

“Cosy cottage”

Reviewed 4 Sep 2017

We stayed here as we were attending a wedding at the Corran resort. It was a lovely cosy well equiped cottage. It had everything we needed to make our stay trouble free.

Owner's reply: Thank you for your review, we are glad you found the cottage cosy! We are always happy to help when it comes to local weddings and the Corran is so close a taxi ride is easy!

“Delightful cottage - would definatley stay again”

Reviewed 28 Oct 2014

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.

Owner's reply: We are so glad you enjoyed your week and that the weather did not spoil it for you. Walking in the rain just means you look forward to getting back to a cosy cottage, a hot drink, and a good film!!

“Wonderful cottage and location”

Reviewed 3 Mar 2014

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

Owner's reply: 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!

“Loved it”
