What with the castle and the Boat House you could not visit a more beautiful place to visit on a Summers Day . We visited with friends and also visited the simple grave of Dylan Thomas.

Visited whilst staying in area - great kids trail, our 6 year old loved it! There is a lovely walk from the castle to Dylan Thomas's boathouse and some great coffee places/pubs - something here for everyone.

A small castle, with some beautiful gardens. Mostly ruins but there are information boards to help you imagine what was there originally. A castle that became a home. Good views over the estuary. Also, in the grounds is Dylan Thomas's writing room. There is a small gift shop. The custodian on duty was fantastic, she was very knowledgeable and wanted... More

I had heard of this "romantic castle" before setting off for Wales but fail to see why it has been thus dubbed. It is in ruins and one can imagine the days of yore when it was in use, but it does not merit more than a 45 minute visit and that included climbing the tower and walking all around... More

There are lovely places to walk and... More

If you're around the area, within an hour of this village do go there for a visit. The castle ruins are lovely and the views around the estuary are well worth seeing. The boat house and the little restaurant where Dylan Thomas lived are worth a visit. Not too many tourists when we were there but I can imagine it... More

Go to Laugharne, it is very special and the home of the late Dylon Thomas. The boat house and the castle are worth seeing and there are also some really nice places to have a meal.
