We found the kitchen well equipped and spacious and the lounge cosy in the evenings. Beds were comfy and we used all 3 bedrooms. The location is good with easy access to walking paths. Laugharne was quieter than we had anticipated for early July and not all businesses were open, e.g. the fish and chip shop was open at lunchtime but closed in the evening. As other reviewers have commented, we did not find it possible to park in the street near the house during our stay. We used the washing machine and an outdoor washing line would have been useful.
There is a garden/outside space but we didn’t use it as we didn’t have great weather.
Great Welsh Escapes were easy to contact and helpful. We would happily book via them again if we were to revisit Wales.

Lovely property, suited our stay of four adults perfectly.
One of our guests is around 6 3" and found himself hitting the light fittings as they are all quite low hanging!!
It was very cosy for an autumn break.

We went over Christmas for a relaxing break and had a wonderful time. The cottage is close to Dylan Thomas's Boathouse and great pubs. The estuary is beautiful and the locals very friendly. Would definitely love to go back. Thanks

We had a lovely stay at this property, which is even cosier than it appears in photos. The radiators warmed up to heat the house very quickly during the cold weather.

Beds were really comfy, and we all slept beautifully!

It's a great base for exploring Carmarthenshire and Pembrokeshire. Laugharne was a lovely town to return to in the evenings after long days out sightseeing.

Great Welsh escapes were really responsive and communicative to meet all our needs before and during the visit.

On street parking was challenging at times, but we're very used to this at home!

It’s a beautiful home and the location is very peaceful perfect for evening walks….Only downside is the parking issue as the street is quite a busy street.

Laugharne, we were delighted to discover the best place to stay in our seven years of visiting. Laugharne is a charming town with a rich history.
One of the highlights of our trip was visiting Laugharne Castle, which we highly recommend to anyone visiting this area. The castle not only offers a glimpse into the past but also treats visitors to breathtaking views of the surrounding landscape. 
While our stay was fantastic, there were a couple of minor drawbacks. There was no bathroom blind in our accommodation. Although the glass was frosted, it did not provide enough privacy for our liking. It would have been more comfortable to have a proper blind or curtain in place, ensuring a sense of privacy while using the facilities.
Another small issue we encountered was the lack of tea towels in the kitchen, there was only one tea towel provided. 
Despite these minor issues, our overall experience at this accommodation was exceptional.
We hope to come back!

Een heerlijk huis met fijne woonkeuken. Sfeervol en met smaak ingericht.
Alles werkt. Lekker als je gewoon een vaatwasser en droger tot je beschikking hebt. En er lag zelfs hout klaar voor de haard.
het enige dat ik miste, was een theedoek.

A lovely quaint cottage in Laugharne. Very clean with great heating which was needed. Had a large kitchen with dining room table and chairs and well appointed. Washer/dryer was great. Main bedroom had a small but lovely en-suite. We went there in winter but found really nice walks around the area and some nice cafes still open. Browns restaurant is def worth a visit. Interior abd food is excellent. The Dylan Coastal Resort was open and we enjoyed lovely meals there. Definitely take a trip to Tenby it’s a beautiful seaside town about a 30 min drive.

Had a lovely stay, the team at Great Welsh Escapes were always there and proactive in reaching out. They also messaged to check we had found everything OK.

Cottage was beautiful and well-equipped. Lovely village location. Parking was not always possible right outside the cottage but within a couple of minutes walk (literature in the cottage shared suggested parking locations).

We didn’t use the garden but it could do with a bit of tidying up … will be lovely if/when that is done though.

Would very much recommend this cottage as a beautiful, relaxing base for the area. A home from home.

The house is absolutely gorgeous and feels like a home from home.

Well what a lovely little house in a superb location. There are some fantastic pubs, cafe’s and shops just a short walk away and the locals are super friendly. The house was nice and clean and most of the things we needed were on hand. There was only a few minor things that would have been beneficial such as matches for the log burner, laundry detergent (as we only had one bath towel and one hand towel each for the week), or more than one tea towel, but we managed. We did have a lovely welcome package of wine, tea, coffee, jam and crackers. The Wi-Fi and tv were most appreciated by the teenagers, as were the board games.

I would definitely recommend this house, but the only advice I would give is to consider the parking, or lack of it. The listing says that there is on road parking available on a first come first served basis, but we never managed to get anywhere near the house for the whole week. We had to park in the village and walk 5 minutes up hill and back down again whenever we were going out in the car. This wasn’t a real issue for us, as the weather was dry and we didn’t mind walking. However if we were an elderly couple or a couple with toddlers, we would struggle. Packing and unpacking the car was a pain though, as we had to block the road.
