Laugharne Castle

Local Area

Laugharne is a small township on the Taf estuary and there are many local walks and interesting places to visit such as the castle, Dylan Thomas’ boathouse and the Tin Shed, a Second World War museum. There are plenty of pubs, cafes, restaurants, tea rooms and shops, including a post office and chemist.

 


Pendine Beach

Further afield there are pretty seaside towns such as Amroth, Saundersfoot and Tenby. There are lots of lovely beaches for safe swimming and sunbathing, the most famous being Pendine Sands, seven miles of beach where Donald Campbell set up the world land speed record and Amy Johnson took off for her flight to America. There is a museum of speed in Pendine where Donald Campbell’s car, Babs, can be seen. For younger people there are Oakwood theme park, Wickedly Welsh Chocolate experiences, Folly Farm small zoo etc.. Brochures for these and many more are available in the cottage.


National Botanical Centre

Gardens include Colby and Aberglasney and the National Botanical Gardens is only fifteen miles away. Colby is well known for its rhododendron and azalea collections and Picton Castle also has a superb display in springtime. There are plenty castles to visit, most with wonderful views over the surrounding countryside. The steam railway at Brownydd is within an easy drive from Carmarthen, our county town, just ten miles away.

More energetic persuits include golf courses, clay pigeon shooting, fly, coarse and sea fishing with boat trips leaving Saundersfoot and Tenby harbours hourly. Some of our guests have visited Cardiff or Llanelli to see their teams play football or rugby.
