Boat House B&B

The Corporation was a much-loved Laugharne Buckley's pub that closed in the 1980s. It is now the Boat House B&B, but the pub name is still etched on the glass on the front window. The pub was so- named because Laugharne has a corporation that has been in existence since 1290. 'Court' is held in the Town Hall every Monday and the portreeve and the jury used to congregate here afterwards. When Dylan Thomas lived up the road at Eros he occasionally drank here. There used to be a small cottage next to the pub where William Alma Rowlands lived. He was an old sea-faring man with pointy beard and nautical cap who trawled for bass, mackerel and mullet using lines from his 20ft boat, Gwennie. He famously couldn't swim and had no life-saving equipment on board.
