“Bara Brith”
Reviewed 18 July 2014

Made by the lady who served us ... a really excellent recipe (ask and she will reveal her secrets). Take the time to learn more of Dylan Thomas, he wasn't just a poet/writer.

“Beautiful place”
Reviewed 14 July 2014

The scenery is wonderful and there is a real sense of tranquillity. Dylan Thomas's writing shed was fantastic to see! We did not pay to go into the museum part of the boat house but went straight down the stair case to the café and sat on the terrace. Although the sandwich we were served was pretty poor for £4.99 (thin best of both style bread!), the pot of tea and tea-cake was nice, the service was extremely friendly, and it was lovely place to sit and take in the view.

“Unspoilt subtle and very special”
Reviewed 10 July 2014

Laugharne itself is awesome especially if one parks down on the estuary car park with the Castle looming to ones left! A walk around the corner and there it is......the home he shared with Caitlin and the children and of course his writing shed.
The museum is fairly priced and well worth a visit, the shop is tastefully stocked and the cafe is welcoming, subtly placed.....with views overlooking the Estuary.
The staff are extremely knowledgable, helpful and cheery and I can't think of a nicer place to spend a morning than there....drinking up the atmosphere and reminiscing about Dylan's life and talent. Not exploited......not in your face.......but there if you want it.

“Fascinating Place”
Reviewed 6 July 2014

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.

“Overpriced”
Reviewed 6 July 2014

£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.
