Villages & Resorts in Dyfed (Wales) Reviews
Newest Review: ... and the graveyard can be interesting to peruse around.Here you will also find the grave of Dylan Thomas the poet and his Wife Caitlin. THE BOAT HOUSE Nestled right along the estuary , a lovely walk to get there,peaceful and a great view of the surrounding area. Here Dylan Thomas wrote some of his best work ,you actually go past his old writing shed,which, is left as he left it to get to the Boat House.

Laugharne is remembered nowadays above all as the place where Dylan Thomas ,the wayward poetic genius wrote some of his best work.

B&B's are plentiful or for families the caravan sites are close to all amenities with entertainment and indoor activities for those occasional wet days. The one thing I've had a problem with is car parking which can be difficult for someone like myself who is disabled. The answer to that of course is either ... Read the complete review
