Reasons for trip


Laugharne is celebrating this year. 2014 is the centenary of the birth of the poet, Dylan Thomas, who lived in a boathouse here until his untimely death in 1953.

'Under Milk Wood' was his last piece of week – an evocative play full of characters and descriptions drawn from life in Laugharne and its surroundings.

We stayed at The New Three Mariners Inn – a simple hotel more in the style of a pub with rooms. A friendly welcome and fine breakfasts, served in two sizes because the full breakfast will defy most guests because it is so enormous!

Dylan Thomas's boathouse is a short stroll from the hotel and is well worth a visit. Its tea terrace has a magnificent view across the wide river estuary – locally-baked Bara Brith and welsh cakes are a splendid accompaniment.

The New Three Mariners is the sister hotel to Brown's Hotel which Dylan Thomas enjoyed visiting. You can see his favourite spot in the bar, soak up the atmosphere and hope for poetic inspiration!
