Superior guest experience at Dylan Thomas House

The Grade 2 listed Dylan Thomas Birthplace was semi derelict in 2005 but after 3 years of painstaking restoration it was opened by the poet’s daughter Aeronwy. The property enjoys sea views and is close to the city centre and the famed Gower beaches. The single room was Dylan's tiny room where he wrote 2/3rds of his published work and decorated as it might have been in 1934. The house has been restored in the Edwardian style when it was bought by the family of Dylan Thomas as a new house in 1914 a few months before Dylan was born in the front bedroom. It is rated 4 star by VisitWales but does lack some modern amenities such as dishwasher and washing machine. It is no surprise that the Dylan Thomas Birthplace was the winner of the Special Judges Award for the Best Place to Stay at the prestigious Hudson's Heritage Awards 2017.
