Enjoyed our visit to the boathouse, good information and interesting letters, film and pictures. We had the best welsh cream tea, served by the most friendly staff, came back the following day for another without having to pay entry, smashing 😍

We learned a lot about Dylan Thomas life and loves (including his partiality to beer) from our visit. There was a 20 minute video of a 1970's TV documentary which was interesting. There was a lot of information in the parlour where an audio of...More

Beautiful boathouse in a gorgeous setting. We thought it a bit excessive to pay £4.50 each to see a few rooms in what seemed to be a very busy house. Therefore we thought we’d just have a coffee and cake in the tearoom and soak...More

Enjoyed a nice simple lunch here with my husband. Dylan Thomas Boathouse Cafe is situated down a flight of narrow steps at the back of the house. Difficult to access if you are infirm and it’s at a little walk away from the nearest car...More

Quite an interesting walk, meeting Dylan's writing shed half way but well worth the longer than expected stroll. The house itself is very 1950-ish with a DVD upstairs telling you about his life. A café downstairs where you can eat on the terrace. A number...More

The most magical thing about this place is its location, snuggling close to the Laugharne estuary with its endless variety of tidal activity and birds, the ‘heron priested shore’ that Thomas writes of. The glimpse into the Writing Shed is essential as a precursor to...More

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!

As I walked through the village and by Dylan's house, I walked down a flight of steps to the boathouse. I can't imagine it being particularly easy for an elderly or disabled person to access the house itself.
