Along a hidden path with the view of the village. Powerful vibrations when you approach full of natural beauty. Stunning on a sunny day two blocks from the center of the village

Each visit you experience the changing views, no wonder Dylan was so enamoured. Afternoon tea is always delicious and the staff have often delighted me with knowledge, humour and wit.

I've been here several times because I like the place. It's a quaint village with a lovely walk by Dylan Thomas' Boathouse. I love to get fish and chips in the town square. It's my favorite.

A must do for anyone who appreciates Dylan's work. A most interesting place that also has a delightful tea room on the terrace that has great views.

So sorry, I didn't consider suitability for pooches at all. I would follow Malcolm's advise and phone first. Lots of nice doggie walks in the vicinity though!
