Find My Favourite Holiday Cottages in Laugharne

Home of the poet Dylan Thomas, Laugharne is a picturesque town on the south coast of Carmarthenshire, in Wales. Set on the estuary of the River Taf, Laugharne offers visitors quintessentially Welsh scenery.

Holiday cottages in Laugharne are within a few miles of golden sand beaches and ancient ruins.

 

On the edge of the town, St Martin's Church dates back to the 14th century. Initially built by the Lord of the Manor of Laugharne, Sir Guido de Brian, the church remains one of the area's main attractions. Notable features include a shaped cross-slab dating back to the Dark Ages, with a unique Celtic design carved into it. Some historians claim the design stems from Viking origins.

Welsh poet and playwright Dylan Thomas is buried in the churchyard. Thomas lived in Laugharne from 1949 until his death in 1953. It is said to have inspired the fictional town of Llareggub in Under Milk Wood, though the town is also similar to New Quay, a one-hour drive north, where he lived while he wrote the story. Your holiday cottage in Laugharne will likely be within walking distance of Thomas' writing shed.

 

Built-in 1116, Laugharne Castle is well worth a visit. It was rebuilt as a Norman stronghold in 1215 and has been altered over time, becoming a Tudor fortified manor house in the 16th century. The castle changed hands twice during the English Civil War before being captured by Parliamentary forces in the mid-1600s. Laugharne Castle inspired modern writers, including Dylan Thomas and Richard Hughes, who penned his novel In Hazard there. Today, visitors on self-catering holidays in Laugharne can explore the castle ruins from spring to autumn.
