We spent the week in this area so decided to visit the gardens - very glad we did. Despite the time of year, there were still lots of plants in flower and looking very pretty. I imagine it's even more stunning in the spring and summer time. The landscaping is lovely, with lots of different elements, water features, and so on. The butterfly house and the huge glasshouse are fantastic, and an added bonus was the fact there was a birds of prey demonstration on while we were there.

The boathouse is a must see when visiting Laugharne, as is the castle. It is set on the banks of the Taff estuary. It is idyllic. You look into Dylan Thomas’ writing shed and see the view. It would inspire God himself. He would say’Me almighty that’s a cracking view’. The house itself is £4.20 for an adult. The building has the authentic feel of Thomas’ time. It is bijou hence a twenty minute film to pad out a five minute visit. Please visit it is a little shrine to a man.

Visited the museum which had been recommended to us. We were greeted by very friendly and helpful staff. The museum takes you through the whole process from carding spinning , weaving, finishing to finished garment using the original machinery which was extremely interesting. What enhanced the visit so was the way the social history was interwoven with the history of woollen mills in the area, such as the production of uniforms during World War 1, the workers forming choirs and bands.
