2 Strand Cottage Holiday Cottage in Laugharne
2 Strand Cottage is a delightful semi-detached fishermens cottage set on the banks of the River Taff in the village of Laugharne, made famous by Dylan Thomas, in fact the cottage overlooks his Boathouse and the ruins of Laugharne Castle.
The cottage is set in a peaceful location with stunning views of the estuary, at very high tides you can occasionally even be cut off for a short while which adds to the cottage’s unique charm. The front terrace is the perfect spot to sit and soak up the wonderful view and watch the fishermen come and go. Step into the sitting room of this comfortable cottage with exposed beams and the wood burning stove ensures a cosy feel on chillier evenings. The pretty cottage style fitted kitchen/diner opens to the enclosed, rear garden with another sheltered patio where you can enjoy an al fresco meal. There is a twin room and bathroom on the ground floor and narrow steep stairs lead to the romantic double bedroom which nestles in the eaves and offers views over the water.
Perfectly positioned with shops and excellent pubs and restaurants all within a short walk, a visit to Dylan Thomas’s Boat House is a must, explore the beautiful coastline and banks of the estuary rich in flora and fauna. The wonderful, long sandy beach at Pendine is a 10 minute drive away with the next lovely yet little visited beach being Marros, officially the start of the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park. The National Botanic Garden of Wales is within a short drive and well worth a visit, as is Pembrey Country Park. What better way to spend the day, but at the races, Fos Las, Wales’s newest Race Course is nearby. For history lovers there are a string of wonderful medieval castles to explore including Laugharne, Llansteffan and Kidwelly to name but a few.
