Dylanologists - if there’s such a term - will be familiar with Browns Hotel. It’s where poet Dylan Thomas sipped and scribbled in the ‘timeless, mild, beguiling island of a town’ that became the template for his masterwork, Under Milk Wood.
His old watering hole has returned to life - and it’s a case of back to the past, not future. Don’t worry, you won’t be confronted with tobacco-stained walls, stale beer and damp sheets. The new Browns is a theatrical homage, 1940s and ’50s nostalgia glimpsed through a modern prism. In the words of host Charlie Dyer, it’s like ‘stepping back into a simpler, slower time’.
The brand ‘new’ Browns provides high-quality contemporary boutique guest accommodation sprinkled with magic Dylan dust, a reinterpretation of its post-war heyday with memorabilia and bedrooms that summon up nostalgic thoughts of vintage values and style.
Next door to Browns and part of the same family is the characterful Inn called "The New Three Mariners", serving tasty pizzas with locally sources ingredients and offers six recently refurbished guest rooms.
