The Corran Resort & Spa is praised by Marie Claire for its "peace, stunning scenery, fine food and a famous literary link", and was included in its list of Great British Boltholes. It's set in the Carmarthenshire countryside, close to the coast and with views of the marshlands.

The 4-star hotel is eight minutes' drive from the historic town of Laugharne, famed as the home of the poet Dylan Thomas. A converted 16th-century building, it has an original inglenook fireplace, exposed stonework and wooden floors. The Boathouse, where Thomas lived, is now a museum, and the garage, which overlooks the "heron-priested shore", is where he wrote.

In 1944, on his 30th birthday, Thomas wrote "Poem in October", celebrating his love of Laugharne. Walk in his footsteps and explore the 2-mile stretch that takes in views of the estuary, Thomas's boathouse, the Gower peninsula, north Devon, Caldey Island and Tenby.

Laugharne is thought to have been the inspiration for the fictional town of Llareggub in "Under Milk Wood". You can explore Laugharne Castle, walk along the Taf estuary, or wander round the cafés, restaurants and shops.

The little market town of Narbeth -- famous for its annual food festival, busy shops and art scene -- is a 30-minute drive away. Pembrokeshire Coast National Park is an hour's drive away, and the seaside towns of Tenby and Saundersfoot on the Pembrokeshire Coast are less than 40 minutes' drive away.

Facilities at the hotel include a gym, a swimming pool, a Jacuzzi, a sauna, a steam room and several treatment rooms.

The 2-AA-Rosette Corran Restaurant uses local and seasonal ingredients.

There are 21 bedrooms in total and all are individually designed, with a rustic feel, contemporary designs, antique furnishings and Celtic Welsh prints.

From the press:
