Dylan Thomas Boat house is now quite a populat tourist attraction. I have been there many times wih my father, as my Father was born in Laugharne, Carmarthenshire and I also went uni in Carmarthenshire.

The boathouse itself is a rather small bluey white painted type workshed very close to the edge of a cliff.

Dylan died in November 1953 while on a lecture tour of America, his body being brought back to Laugharne and buried beneath a simple white cross in the nearby cemetery.

With his widow Caitlin unwilling to live in the boathouse his mother, Florence, became the tenant, staying until she died here in 1958.






It is her ghost that is believed to haunt the house which is now a shrine to the memory Dylon. Staff often hear the sound of a chair scraping over the floor upstairs, as though someone has quickly risen from a table to avoid them. On entering the boathouse they will find that lights that were definitely switched off the previous evening have mysteriously been turned on over night, while books have been knocked off the shelves and, on occasions, pictures have been lifted off the walls and placed on the opposite side of the upstairs room

I went there a few years back, a rainy summer afternoon, one of those weird sort of days when there doesn't seem to be anyone around, there is a feeling/vibe to the place, i found it incredibly tranquil and "safe" for want of a better word.
I wasn't aware at the time of alleged hauntings there and i can't say i saw anything out of the ordinary, it just felt so utterly and totally peaceful. (may have been due to the fact there weren't many if any human beings around to mess up your day Wink )
