Did the birthday walk. Need some level of fitness as there are hills to climb and fields to cross. Apart from that the views are amazing and information boards will tell you all you need to know. Plus there are many benches to sit and rest and admire the scenery and they are marked with one liners from Thomas's poems.

Lovely walk, staggeringly beautiful views. A few good climbs and well punctuated by benches and display boards. Humbling to think of DT doing the same walk. It did get a little bit muddy, but we didn't mind that. Essential if you're on a Dylan Thomas pilgrimage.

you start off from the carpark above you is laugharne castle which is mostly in tact. dylans boathouse can be seen and his work shed . walking around you imagine how the poet must have known these paths likethe back of his hand. a verytranquil place that everyone should visit and capture the magic of it all.

Randomly stopped off here on our way home. A nice stroll to the boathouse and a slightly longer walk to find his & his wife's final resting place. The views when walking to the boathouse are gorgeous. Very glad we stopped here.

Lovely walk with stunning views. You don't have to be super fit to complete this walk. It's well worth attempting it even if you don't complete it all.

A really lovely relaxed walk down to the Boat House. Even without seeing the building would be a pleasant stoll.

A comfortable walk and wonderful visit to The Boathouse. Beautiful views and a moving experience to be where Dylan Thomas lived and wrote.

Laugharne has a birthday walk to die for. All you have to do is prove that it is your birthday and look out for a walking man symbol and quote "oh may my hearts truth still be sung" and you get freebies? Free entry into the boathouse, free coffee at the Owl and Pussycat, beer or a drink in Browns... More

On a warm August morning, my husband and I both in our early 50's went on a 1 1/2 hour circular walk which started with a steady climb up the side of the hill with overhanging trees giving some welcome shade. The view from the top over the estuary and towards the castle was beautiful, peaceful and educational as there... More
