Pentowyn is situated on the Taf estuary with wonderful views directly across to the historic castle at Laurgharne and Dylan Thomas’s boathouse. There are strong connections with Dylan Thomas as he spent time at Pentowyn as a child where his aunt and uncle were farming. In later life when he lived at the Boathouse in Laurgharne, he would sit in his writing shed and look across at Pentowyn where memories of his childhood may have influenced his writing.
Views up the estuary towards the Preseli Mountains and down the estuary towards Pendine, and Caldey Island. Pentowyn is in a wonderful rural setting, yet with the ever changing estuary views directly in front.
