We parked eventually by the water and walked up through the town. There was much more to see in the boathouse than I expected. I still find it hard to square the great poetry of Dylan Thomas with the idea of him as a man....More

We parked in the free car park by the castle and walked the way it was signposted to the boathouse ((approx 400yards) along a narrow lane. A preferable route, if the tide is out would be the heritage walk which runs beside the estuary. To...More

Along a hidden path with the view of the village. Powerful vibrations when you approach full of natural beauty. Stunning on a sunny day two blocks from the center of the village

Each visit you experience the changing views, no wonder Dylan was so enamoured. Afternoon tea is always delicious and the staff have often delighted me with knowledge, humour and wit.

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!
