Number 5 Cwmdonkin Drive in the Uplands suburb of Swansea – the second city of Wales – played a huge part in shaping the style and output of Dylan Thomas. Dylan was born in the front bedroom of the house in 1914 and continued to live at Number 5 until his parents moved out in 1937 of his “…Glamorgan villa…” overlooking the “… long and splendid curving shore…” of Swansea Bay. This is where the subject of the film Edge of Love and author of Under Milk Wood spent his formative years.
The Birth Place has been restored to its condition in 1914 when it was bought as a new house by the Thomas family.
We guarantee that there will be something that you will see or touch that will provide memories for a long time to come.
The house is open for guided tours making it a unique visitor attraction. Why not let us host your own special Dylan with Dylan event or read the latest dinner review? For a few very special people there is the chance for a self catering stay and you can even stay for just one night
