A splendid detached residence enjoying one of the most enviable locations in West Wales with breathtaking views of Laugharne Estuary, Carmarthen Bay and beyond, it also enjoys the convenience of being a short walk from the town and the Dylan Thomas Boat House.

Craig y Don is a tale of two halves, with the original Georgian/Victorian residence offering traditional 2/3 bedroom accommodation and a recent contemporary architect designed addition that takes full advantage of its stunning cliff top location providing a further 1/2 bedrooms. The property could divide into 2 self contained properties ideal for 2 families or a holiday let.

The original accommodation briefly comprises Utility room, dining room, sitting room, living room and spiral staircase to bedroom/office, kitchen, shower room, 2 bedrooms and bathroom. In the adjoining extension, which has under floor heating, there is an open plan kitchen/living room, bedroom and bathroom, stairs to galleried landing/living room and an office/bedroom and shower room.

The Historical Township of Laugharne lies on the estuary of the River Taf, is famous for having been the home of Dylan Thomas and is thought to have been the inspiration for the fictional town of Llareggub in Under Milk Wood. Dylan's former residence, The Boat House and writing shed, are popular tourist attractions in the area and situated a short walk from Craig y Don.

Laugharne is an historical township dating back to the 12th Century with a magnificent medieval castle. Laugharne Corporation is one of the last surviving medieval corporations in the United Kingdom, is presided over by a Portreeve, wearing his traditional chain of gold cockles, and is conferred annually. Customs associated with the corporation include the common walk, also known as beating the bounds, which occurs on Whit Monday every 3 years. The township offers a good range of amenities for day to day needs. There is a shop, chemist, doctors surgery, delicatessen, pubs including the famous Browns Hotel, a variety of eating places, a community hall as well as places of worship including the beautiful Church. St Clears is 4 miles where you have excellent road links on to the A40 providing swift access to the County town of Carmarthen and Pembrokeshire to the west with its beautiful coastal towns and villages and 4 miles down the road is Pendine famous for its long sandy beach where numerous land speed records have been broken.
