Thank you for such a lovely review - we are glad you enjoyed your stay. Yes I can understand, to visitors, that Kidwelly may seem a little disappointing. Once a bustling town, it now only has a few shops. It does however have the most amazing castle, beautiful church and Industrial museum. Kidwelly will be celebrating 900 years of history in 2015; there will be plenty of activities going on, including concerts, exhibitions and other events, so if you are thinking of visiting this area it is worth checking the Kidwelly Town website to peruse the programme.
