Laugharne & Dylan Thomas

Laugharne is situated just a few miles away from Old Oak Barn and is of course famous for its tranquil setting, historic Castle and because it is where Dylan Thomas penned much of “Under Milk Wood”  He is surely Wales’s greatest poet! The famous Boat House is a big tourist attraction and in 2014 an exact replica of The Writing Shed began touring Carmarthen and the rest of Wales. Picture courtesy of Wikipaedia.

We think you will enjoy visiting Laugharne which is famous across the world and in 2014 lots of special event are taking place to celebrate the centenary of his birth in Swansea at  5 Cwmdonkin Drive.  Why not visit Swansea for the day too – its less than an hour from here!


Taking a stroll around the little village provides hours of interest for visitors who can pop into The Browns Hotel for a pint, go into the Castle grounds or walk “The Birthday Walk”.
