Even of not, the Cream Tea, and the Welsh Tea (we had both) and just had a relaxing time sitting out in the sun on the deck outside. Lovely little shop too, we bought a... More

Mid afternoon tea after a nice walk. The Welsh rarebit was beautiful and the cream tea was great...however I did notice the cream was cornish. All in all a great tea and very good staff.

You cannot visit Laugharne & not visit Dylan Thomas Boathouse, it is a must & steeped in history. You can see from the view where Dylan Thomas had his inspiration for his writing >

This place is tucked into the estuary at Laugharne and is worth a visit if you are in the area, it's a short walk from the village centre car park. The views across the water and the bay are lovely, and there's something about imagining the writer here in a the summer and in storms with all this backdrop. I... More

For anybody with an interest in literature, let alone Dylan Thomas, this is a must visit. The Boathouse sets the scene for his later life and together with the excellent video provides a full background to his life and times. The walk to and from the Boathouse provides excellent views of the coastline and back to Laugharne? Together with the... More

I think we had the Wesh tea plate for morning tea. It was lovely and easily fed two of us with home baked Welsh cakes, bread and lovely cheese, plus a big pot of tea.

The view from the boathouse is truly stunning. We stopped by at the tea room and we were not dissapointed as the food was homely and comforting which is just what was needed on a rainy day out.

I parked by the castle which looks out onto the estuary. It was a lovely short walk to the Boat House, even in the light rain, and you could see why this place inspired Dylan Thomas so much (and is thought to be the real life setting of Under Milk Wood). Your walk takes you past the garage that was... More
