Browns Hotel

Browns Hotel

Browns Hotel in Laugharne will forever be associated with Dylan Thomas. It was his favourite 'watering hole' and he gathered much of the material for his iconic play, Under Milk Wood, from the gossip and stories he heard in the bar.

In 2012 it underwent a complete refurbishment and now offers 14 luxurious rooms with organic Welsh blankets, en-suite bathrooms and LCD HD TVs. The Times gave it a 'cool factor' of 9/10 and it made No. 17 in The Guardian's '100 Top Boutique Hotels Under £100.' As well as the fully restored bar, there is a reading room, conference room and a car-park to the rear. The bar stocks drinks from the Penderyn Distillery range as well as Welsh real ale. There are tasty bar snacks on offer, live events and the weekly 'Sunday Session', where we promote the best in local music from 3pm.

The Grade 2 listed hotel, which was built in 1752, stands on Laugharne's King St, a short distance from the castle, estuary, gifts shops and cafes, the quirky Tin Shed military museum and most importantly the Dylan Thomas Boathouse, which is now a museum and tea room. Laugharne is not just for literary types – it sits on the Wales Coastal Path and there are several walks in the area from where you can view the herons and egrets down on the timeless estuary. We'll leave the last word on Laugharne to Dylan: '...a mild beguiling island of a town.... there is nowhere like it anywhere at all.'
