Longshore House takes guests to The Edge of Love
Longshore House is an idyllic holiday rental property with a difference situated in the picturesque township of Laugharne, South Wales, an area now recognised as the location for the latest Hollywood export The Edge of Love.
The Edge of Love is a story set in 1940’s Britain about the private life of poet Dylan Thomas starring Keira Knightley and Matthew Rhys. Much of the filming takes place on the windswept shores of the Pembrokeshire Coast including Dylan Thomas’s famous boathouse, a short walk from Longshore House, which provides the perfect base from which to explore the areas beautiful beaches and ancient castles and emanates Hollywood glamour from behind its deceiving 18th Century façade.
Longshore House was built prior to 1840 and has a fantastic array of original features including exposed beams, stripped pine floors and thick, uneven walls.
The recent renovation from its dilapidated state to an eclectic mix of old meets new has been undertaken by Interior Designer Lesley Taylor who has injected individual contemporary elegance in to the property to create a charming and relaxing yet ultra stylish residence reminiscent of a 5 star boutique hotel filled with romance and intrigue.
The Design has been careful not to lose Longshore House’s associations with Dylan Thomas and his poems tastefully adorn walls and are etched on glass.
Entertainment at the propery allows guests to listen to Thomas’s evocative poem Under Milk Wood on the multi room server / iDock while the book library holds works penned by the man himself which can be read curled up by the inglenook fire or in the cottage garden on a summer’s day.
The house sleeps six people in three luxurious twin / double bedrooms, one complete with roll top bath, with a further two people in the converted attic space. The property has a cosy living room, country kitchen complete with range cooker,separate dining room, conservatory and two designer bathrooms.
Prices start at £495.00 for a three night mid week break low season.
