Cosy, pet-friendly romantic retreat. Great location in Laugharne, perfect for enjoying a meal at one of the wonderful eateries, or visit for a short break in the winter.
The description is spotted on - perfect for a couple. Everything is nice and cleaned- first impression is excellent. Kitchen things are good although I’d like to have a pair of tongs when lifting / turning meat or sausages.

Thank you for taking the time to review your stay at Poets Cottage in the beautiful little town of Laugharne. We will pass your recommendation onto the owner regarding the tongs.
Clean, cosy with nice friendly touches. Excellently equipped. It could do with another cushion on the settee to raise the height as I had difficulty in getting up due to a slight disability. Another point, why do Quality Cottage call the property "Poets Cottage" when the name outside is "Daffodil Cottage"? Will definitely go there again.
Very clean, comfortable and well-equipped. Loved the location and, in the cottage, the retention of beams etc as this is a historic building. Our hosts met us at the end of the stay - something they always try to do. We had a noisy shower but that calmed down after a day or two and is to have a new part apparently. Very memorable location, Laugharne is so beautiful and we tracked Dylan Thomas, of course!
Pleasant cottage but whilst it's generally equipped ok it clearly is meant for those couples who are out and about or who eat out a lot. Thankfully we had great weather and enjoyed the great selection of places to eat and drink. However, we do like meals in as well and we were glad we brought a slow cooker as the kitchen and equipment is very limited. Also, the store of provisions is limited and really only intended to last a day or so, which meant we needed to stock up with things normally provided by cottages where we have,stayed. The welcome basket however was appreciated. The decor is lovely but it was a shame that the pots of flowers haven't been tended to and the back area really could do with weeding and spruced up a bit; it just took away from the appearance and on arriving wasn't very welcoming. The double bed is quite small which meant neither of us slept particularly well. A king size duvet might have helped and saved arguments about who had taken the bed covers! The bathroom and shower was also a bit tight with not a lot of room to spread out your things. The location, however is amazing and we fell in love with Laugherne, the estuary and all things Dylan. We just thought we might have done better with the cottage as it didn't really meet our expectations.

Thank you for taking the time to feedback your thoughts. Your comments have been forwarded to the owner, however a double bed 4'6" is as advertised and we do inform you before arrival of the actual name of the cottage. Having said that improvements can always be made to make guests stay perfect. We are glad that you enjoyed your stay in this lovely little cottage.
Das kleine Cottage liegt sehr zentral in Laugharne, die Burg und die kleine "Innenstadt" sind gut zu Fuß erreichbar. Der nächste schöne Strand liegt etwa 8 km südlich, die nächste größere Stadt ca. 18 km entfernt. Das Cottage ist voll ausgestattet, man muss sich nur etwas an die "Größe" gewöhnen. Der kleine Patio ist sehr schön, wir haben dort jeden morgen gefrühstückt. Einziger Minuspunkt: die Gartenmöbel waren etwas wackelig ;-) Das Cottage ist auf jeden Fall eine Empfehlung wert!!!
The Cottage was lovely, it was clean and homely and perfect for an escape with everything we needed. Laugharne is a beautiful welsh village with it's estuary and lovely walks. The welcome hamper was much appreciated and we became avid lovers of Welsh Cakes!! I have 2 pieces of constructive feedback, make sure there is a pen so people can sign the guest book and try to sort out the creaking staircase, with the noise it make it doesn't always feel safe which I am sure it is. Poet Cottage is an ideal base for exploring beautiful Wales.
Very good value. and a welcome break.
What a lovely cottage! We have had a lovely holiday here. It's a good base to explore the area- the coastal path walks are brilliant. The beaches at Stackpole and Angle just great! We liked the garden at Colby (Amroth). Sunday lunch at the Ferryman's is superb. We hae enjoyed everything so much we will be coming back soon.
We have had a lovely short break here- What a great base for exploring this compact and cosy cottage makes! Super shower too, all very clean and comfortable. We have been very lucky with the weather, so much to see and do even at the end of November! We had a good meal at the Browns and were delighted to find the bakery in Victoria St, just up from the Three Mariners. This is a lovely part of Wales and we shall return when everything is open (like the castle and the Tin Shed museum). Thank you for a lovely place to stay in.
The perfect place to undertake a pilgrimage to the home of Dylan Thomas, wonderful!
We've really enjoyed our stay here. Cottage is lovely and equipped with everything we needed. We may well be back!
Than kyou for a wonderful place to stay in your quaint ad comfortable cottage. The scenery was breath-takingly beautiful in this seaside sleepy village. Wonderful walks down to the Boathouse and Castle. Will definitely return!
Have had a wonderful week's stay, weather great, cottage lovely. Lots of beautiful beaches and scenery, everyone very friendly, would certainly recommend to family & friends.
Enjoyed our stay in Laugharne which provided a great vantage point to visit the many towns and villages in this part of Wales. We found the cottage comforable and well appointed with great attention to detail. A home away from home.
Many thanks for putting together such a pretty cosy little cottage. We had a fabulous stay and have felt really 'at home' in our little house. Laugharne is also lovely and we've found loads to do- mostly a stone's throw away. Thanks again.
Lovely cottage, well equipped. The space has been well thought out. We both fell in love with Laugharne and it exceeded our expectations. Very dog friendly area and we all loved the beaches. Many thanks.
