Interesting accents, mounds of Carmarthen Bay cockles and one rather famous poet are just a few of the things to discover in the charming Welsh town of Laugharne in Carmarthenshire. Huddled beside the estuary of the River Taf, this alluring town is made up of tiers of stately Georgian houses, including the grade 2 listed Castle House which stands in the shadow of the imposing Laugharne Castle. Peek into the past at this 12th century stone leviathan, made famous by the town’s most eminent resident, Dylan Thomas, in his piece ‘Poem in October’. Discover the still sailing boats and misty woodlands which inspired Dylan to put pen to paper in this bewitching Welsh town, as well as his charming ‘writing shed’, the Boathouse, which houses the literary mementoes and personal effects of this canny Welsh bard.
Once you’ve unearthed the cultural delights of Laugharne, pop into one of the town’s heart warming pub for some fine Welsh fare; the perfect place to relax and enjoy the flavours of the real Wales on your next cottage holiday.
