Lovin’ Laugharne

Laugharne on the estuary of the River Taf
Laugharne is a town located on the south coast of Carmarthenshire, Wales, reclining on the estuary of the River Tâf. The population at the 2011 census was 1,222.

Two days of perfect weather in mid March, we escaped down to Laugharne to get away from the builders and their dust cloud. 

And as soon as we had registered at the Browns Hotel, our usual rooms, we were off to Pendine beach. 

The excellent Castle View Fish Bar

Pendine Sands 

The official Carmarthenshire guide describes Pendine as '7 miles of glorious sandy beach'.

What is doesn't say is that due to MoD restrictions much of this beach is off limits between 7am and 4pm most days.

Hey Ho, there is still enough room for everyone and the men from the Ministry.  Mid afternoon and the sun was still high turning the whole beach into a giant looking glass. Every part of the village and beachfront was reflected in the Sands.

Across the square from Laugharne Castle is the excellent Castle View Fish Bar and Restaurant. We all enjoyed crispy delicious cod with some nicely cooked chips, all served up with a smile and a Chardonnay.
