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

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.

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.

A castle has been on the site for centuries. The current incarnation, which is now a ruin, is from 1500s I think. You can no longer go inside the castle ruins. But you can walk all around it. Beautiful gardens nearby, and the views over the estuary are fantastic in all directions. Laugharne itself may be best known for its... More

Closed, also Cadw so no National Trust free access even if it was open. Only £3.30 to get in when open so not a big problem

A lovely castle to walk around with great view of the estuary. Give it a try before or after a visit to Dylan's place.
