Great House

Great House (Ty Mawr) is a beautifully restored grand Georgian town house with outdoor heated swimming pool set on the Main Street in Laugharne, the magical village made famous by Dylan Thomas. Grade 2 star listed, its restoration was a 10 year labour of love by its owners from its once derelict state; it retains many historical architectural features with extensive wood paneling, high ceilings embellished with decorative plasterwork and huge sash windows complete with original working shutters.

The impressive hallway with its fine dog leg staircase will take you back in time to the grandeur of a bygone era yet modern conveniences add to your comfort. Two reception rooms, one with wood burning stove give space to relax, while the formal panelled dining room lends itself for leisurely dinner parties, French doors open to a flagged stone terrace overlooking the garden.

A stone staircase leads down to the spacious modern, fitted, kitchen with refectory table and cosy snug. A door opens to the next flagged terrace, perfect for dining alfresco on a summer’s evening. Two steps lead down to the decked patio, where the outdoor heated pool (available April - September) is guaranteed to provide hours of fun. Below lies a lawned walled garden. The majestic bedrooms are sure to delight, three of which have their own impressive ensuite with large roll-top baths, perfect for a relaxing soak after a busy day exploring. In the attic nestles amongst the A-frame beams an additional suite with open-plan living space, a kingsize double bed leading to a further twin bedroom.

Enjoy exploring the delights of Laugharne with its imposing Medieval Castle and mixture of fine houses and quaint cottages all set on the banks of the estuary of the river Taf. There are a number of highly recommended restaurants and pubs within walking distance of Great House. Follow in the footsteps of Dylan Thomas, take his two mile birthday walk based on his ‘Poem in October’. The Boathouse once his home, is now a heritage centre. There are a number of coastal and estuary walks to discover in this beautiful area, take advantage of all that Carmarthenshire known as ‘The Garden of Wales’ has to offer, with visits to its fine Botanical Gardens, Fos Llas racecourse, the golden sands of Pendine and Pembrey Country Park, yet you are equally perfectly positioned to explore Pembrokeshire’s stunning coastline and fabulous National Coastal Park.

Dogs are welcome onto the beach during the winter months providing they are kept on leads, however restrictions are then put in place from 1st May to the 30th September forbidding dogs on this beach. Technically, this is a tidal estuary rather than a beach, and so it is recommended to supervise children bathing at all times due to the strong currents in the water.
Carmarthen

Pendine Sands is a 7-mile long, straight beach, smoothered in the most beautiful sand and edged by a belt of dunes. From the beach there are clear views across Carmarthen Bay to Gower and Tenby.
In the summer of 2000, Don Wales made history on this beach, by breaking the Uk electric land speed record in his vehicle, reaching a staggering 137mph.
Please note that it is always worth checking to see if the MOD are using the area for firing practice, around the time of your proposed visit. If they are, then red flags will be raised and part of the beach will be closed to the public (although the firing itself is a good distance away).

There is no public access to the Iron Age earthworks.
Carmarthen
Kidwelly Castle is a Norman castle overlooking the River Gwendraeth and the town of Kidwelly, Carmarthenshire The present remains of the castle include work from about 1200 to about 1476. Created as a defence against the Welsh. The castle is relatively well-preserved, and is managed by Cadw.
Carmarthen
The castle at Carmarthen is overlooking the River Twyi, , the Roman fort must have dominated the Roman town. The castle was converted into a prison in the 18th and 19th centuries, and the building of the Council offices has also not helped its appreciation as a military entity. However, enough remains to make a visit worthwhile. Free Town and Castle tours which take place from Castle House during the summer months and on most Wednesdays, depending on weather conditions.
Stepaside Ironworks originally opened in 1849, obtaining ore from the Amroth area and was transported by Saundersfoot railway. The Ironworks are now very much a ruins nowadays with the Engine Blasting House and the Casting House being more well-preserved.
Carmarthen

Head to Gwili Steam Railway for an insight into the history of local and wartime industries with steam locomotives and a standard gauge preserved railway. Gwili Steam Railway is mostly run by volunteers and much assistance from the Gwili Railway Preservation Society. Go along for cream tea or one of their dining experiences. They also hold special events throughout the year including a Murder Mystery Evening and a Santa's Magical Steam Trains event at Christmas time.

Please Note: Not all aspects are disabled friendly, and dogs are welcomed but not allowed in the dining car. 

Tenby
Tenby Castle was originally built by the Normans in the 12th Century, of which only a small tower remains on the top of Castle Hill. The town walls however, which it is believed were built later on in the 13th Century, are impressively well preserved, with the east walls running complete to the Esplanade.
Narberth
First recorded as a Norman Castle in 1116, Narberth Castle bears the legend that it was once a palace described in the mythical tales of Mabinogion. Unfortunately, very little of the stone structure remains but you can see that it was once rectangular in shape with circular towers. By the end of the 20th Century, Narberth Castle was derelict and so in 2006, renovations took place and it was opened to the public.
