Driving back towards the caravan we came across Laugharne and knew the Dylan Thomas Boathouse to be close by. A pretty grim day but free parking at the castle is a bonus. The castle is mainly ruined but has a fabulous position overlooking the Taf estuary. Lovely walk around to The Boat House. We didn't pay to go into either... More

OK its a free entry site but there is no effort made to shout it exists. No sign posting, no convenient car park, unmanned but not even a display board. A bit of an effort needed.

I love going around Castles and gardens, this is a nice way to spend an hour or two. Do make your way to the top of the tower for a spectacular view.

A quiet and peaceful place with plenty of places to sit and enjoy the sounds and scenes of a ruined castle near the sea. Well kept gardens and reasonable access for the disabled.

Laugharne Castle is sat on the banks of the estuary commanding fabulous views. The village of Laugharne is small & quaint & famous for its connection with the poet Dylan Thomas. We took a short stroll around the village & then walked around the estuary & the castle perimeter taking in the astonishing peaceful views & the history of Dylan... More

We visited Laugharne because we wanted to visit The Boathouse and follow the Dylan Thomas connection, however, with the free parking adjacent to the castle it was an obvious choice to visit the castle as well. In a defensive position overlooking the Taf estuary, there has been a castle here since the Norman times. Much of the castle is now... More

There are lovely views up and down the river estuary. The history of the castle was interesting. The gardens are lovely. A place that is worth visiting and is dog friendly.

We didn't go into the castle but I have been inside in previous visits due to the price of over £4 per adult. It's such a beautiful place though , if your not on a tight budget it's well worth a visit
