The Corran Resort & Spa is praised by Marie Claire for its "peace, stunning scenery, fine food and a famous literary link", and was included in its list of Great British Boltholes. It's set in the Carmarthenshire countryside, close to the coast and with views of the marshlands.

The 4-star hotel is eight minutes' drive from the historic town of Laugharne, famed as the home of the poet Dylan Thomas. A converted 16th-century building, it has an original inglenook fireplace, exposed stonework and wooden floors. The Boathouse, where Thomas lived, is now a museum, and the garage, which overlooks the "heron-priested shore", is where he wrote.

In 1944, on his 30th birthday, Thomas wrote "Poem in October", celebrating his love of Laugharne. Walk in his footsteps and explore the 2-mile stretch that takes in views of the estuary, Thomas's boathouse, the Gower peninsula, north Devon, Caldey Island and Tenby.

Laugharne is thought to have been the inspiration for the fictional town of Llareggub in "Under Milk Wood". You can explore Laugharne Castle, walk along the Taf estuary, or wander round the cafés, restaurants and shops.

The little market town of Narbeth -- famous for its annual food festival, busy shops and art scene -- is a 30-minute drive away. Pembrokeshire Coast National Park is an hour's drive away, and the seaside towns of Tenby and Saundersfoot on the Pembrokeshire Coast are less than 40 minutes' drive away.

Facilities at the hotel include a gym, a swimming pool, a Jacuzzi, a sauna, a steam room and several treatment rooms.

The 2-AA-Rosette Corran Restaurant uses local and seasonal ingredients.

There are 21 bedrooms in total and all are individually designed, with a rustic feel, contemporary designs, antique furnishings and Celtic Welsh prints.

Had a great weekend with close family and friends for a wedding. Lovely atmosphere

1 thing that did upset me was after booking rooms through travel zoo the reception staff had told me I had not paid even though i paid through travel zoo. This took a while to sort out and I got a bit upset. The fact I was being accused of not paying after paying through travel zoo was not a nice feeling. Luckily I had my phone on me and went through my online banking as that was my only way of proving I had paid!

The room was nice and we liked the fact we had a separate living area. Bathroom was large. Liked the use of bathrobes and slippers.

The breakfast was most disappointing. The selection of fresh fruit was shocking - pomegranate, water melon and galia melon. The fried eggs were like rubber and inedible - we asked for freshly cooked eggs and they brought out a fresh batch which were not much better. The choice of hot breakfast items was poor - no scrambled eggs or beans or hash browns. For a resort and spa the breakfast was extremely disappointing. We had intended to have evening meal on the second night or our stay but after the breakfast experience decided to eat elsewhere.

We were disappointed with the evening meal my husbands terrine had a thumbnail size piece of bone in it and our main course which was the lamb that came highly recommended was warm and not very enjoyable. Plus side we ordered champagne that was not available and received a bottle of Moet for same price.
