The view from the boathouse is truly stunning. We stopped by at the tea room and we were not dissapointed as the food was homely and comforting which is just what was needed on a rainy day out.

I parked by the castle which looks out onto the estuary. It was a lovely short walk to the Boat House, even in the light rain, and you could see why this place inspired Dylan Thomas so much (and is thought to be the real life setting of Under Milk Wood). Your walk takes you past the garage that was... More

It is not surprising that Dylan Thomas wrote so beautifully when you see where he lived and wrote. The views across the estuary from both the house and his writing shed are absolutely superb.

After a 10 minute walk to reach the boathouse up a steep hill or steps, there are 2 ways to go you reach the boathouse and find its £4.50 per person to view around the house, if you're only going to the cafe then its free to enter. A short film 20 mins about Dylan Thomas is all thats really... More

Quaint little café with local products and friendly staff, plus good views across the estuary from the outside seating area. Worth the walk.

A wonderful little museum cottage and tea-rooms, full of personal items and artefacts belonging to Dylan Thomas, very evocative. A truly sublime setting on the edge of the estuary with stunning views.

A stunning location and very interesting and informative venue. Laugharne is a bit out of the way to get to, but with its history, castle, the estuary view, pubs and restaurant it makes for a good day out for everyone, literary minded or otherwise. It can get very busy, we chose a quiet sunny day to visit

This is a wonderfully kept house, where Dylan Thomas lived with his family. There is plenty to see, even though the house and rooms are small. It's magical just being able to sit looking out of the window at the view that he enjoyed so much and was so familiar with. It's extremely atmospheric and magical. We are so lucky... More
