Laugharne is where Dylan’s Thomas is buried in a very modest grave and the town is full of homages to wales’ great poet. A sleepy town with beautiful estuary and walks, good restaurants and of course the boathouse and museum.

Visited the Dylan Thomas Boathouse recently for the first time in many years. Stunning views and it was so atmospheric to be in the parlour among the various pieces of Dylan memorabilia. It may be a small house but there is lots to see and...More

We popped in for a late breakfast and had bacon buttys and tea all around. We were lucky enough to be able to sit outside in the sun. Even though you have to pay to visit the boathouse you can visit the cafe for free....More

On a glorious sunny day there can’t be many more beautiful spots to soak in the atmosphere that so inspired Dylan Thomas. A small but interesting exhibition with a film about Dylan Thomas’s life was very atmospheric and the Welsh accents of fishermen on the...More

It’s worth a visit if you like culture and especially Dylan Thomas. However, it is closed and you can’t see very much. His desk, a few notes and his poetry, with a few personal artefacts. So a little disappointed. Still it was nice to see...More

Basically this is a modest shed perched beside a narrow lane overlooking the Laugharne estuary. I’ve never managed to get inside it, though I believe it is open at times, but there are glazed panels so you can look in and see where the great...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!
