Enjoy exclusive use of this peaceful, beautifully restored Edwardian house, the birthplace of the poet Dylan Thomas. It can sleep 1 to 7 people across the 4 bedrooms. Swansea center is 1 miles away and the start of the Gower Beaches is 5 miles away.
The home which was originally owned by the Thomas family, has a retro Edwardian décor that includes a phonogram, books, newspapers of the day and games. Much of Thomas' published output was written in the house.
Apart from Dylan’s bedroom, which has been described as the first World Literary Heritage Site in Wales, there are 2 double bedrooms and a twin bedded room. On the ground floor are 3 reception rooms and a kitchen. There is a garden to the rear of the house.
Cwmdonkin Park is a short walk away. A guided house tour is undertaken on arrival and experienced guides are available for tours with Dylan Thomas Country.

- Is it possible to identify the lady in the picture above the fireplace in the twin divan bedroom ? My reason for asking is that we too have a copy of this picture and have never been able to identify the person in the portrait. I apologise for any inconvenience but grateful for your help BarbaraHi! Thanks for your question! The lady in the picture is Sarah Siddons. Dylan’s sister Nancy was an actress and Sarah was her heroine. It is believed that this print was in the house when the Thomases lived there. I hope this helps!Answered on 3 April 2021
