What a lovely location. Quite a trek to get there, but worth it. His writing shed, which was converted from the garage, was particularly interesting. We were fascinated by his life story and the photos. There is also a tea room.

£4 odd to look at two rooms and the rest is a cafe. You can look at his garage where he done his writing for free.

Although I had heard of Dylan Thomas I wasn't that familiar with his work before our visit, but standing by his work room overlooking the river & reading one of his poems about the view was deeply moving. We strolled on to the Boathouse where we climbed down to the house and enjoyed exploring it and watching the excellent film about him. We enjoyed a lovely cup of coffee & delicious freshly baked slice of cake whilst sitting on the terrace in the sunshine. They have a good book shop on the way out. After enjoying this lovely peaceful spot & strolling round the bay enjoying the views we were horrified to learn that planning permission has apparently been granted to build a wind farm with several huge masts on the hill opposite to the boathouse, ruining the view & probably endangering the migrating birds that come through here. Tragic!!

a perfect place for Dylan Thomas live in. How he must have been able to write in solitude the gentle ebb and flow of the tides giving thoughts to all his words. The Boathouse is just as it was when he Lived there A walk back to Shed is a must.

A pleasant place to spend a while. Boathouse offers tea overlooking the estuary, a lovely place even in winter.
