Dylan Thomas's Boat house and the Estuary.
Laugharne Boat House.

Laugharne Boat House.

Laugharne and Dylan Thomas.

Just over 25 miles from Timber Hill is Laugharne, a pretty little village which was once the home of Dylan Thomas.

There are several beautiful walks around the area. They range from a gentle wander round the edges of the old castle and the banks of the river Tâf to the lovely two-mile Dylan Thomas Birthday Walk.

This walk is the setting for one of his best loved works, Poem in October, in which he vividly describes a stroll around Laugharne on his 30th birthday.

There are information boards at all the best viewpoints of the ‘heron-priested shore’, which are full of information about Dylan’s life and work. As a bonus, if you do the walk on your own birthday (and can prove it), you can claim complimentary goodies at several local businesses!
