Number 5 Cwmdonkin Drive is rooted in the past. It is as near to what it would have been like when bought as a new house by the Thomas family in 1914 as we could get.
I know that it is pretty accurate as I have scoured Dylan’s letters and stories for clues, interviewed people who worked in the house and even found two brothers who lived for thirty years after the Thomas family moved out – I almost feel like Dylan’s parents – DJ one day – Florrie the next!
The main things the house can offer are
- to Stay – for a night or longer and experience the calm of living without the hum and hiss of modern appliances
- to Explore – join us on a house tour and sample a ‘real’ cup of tea
- to Celebrate with an Edwardian style Dinner at Dylan’s – three courses of fresh, local produce
- a unique venue for almost anything – we set the scene – the only limit is your imagination
- peep inside Dylan’s tiny bedroom as it might have been in 1934 and feel how he might have composed over two thirds of his published work while staring at the plain wall opposite!
