Review on The Corran Resort & Spa
Formerly Hurst House, it has undergone an extensive refurbishment by its new owners and has emerged with a new name, The Corran Resort & Spa which was chosen to reflect the heritage of the area, as the town of Laugharne was originally known as AberCorran and the ruins of the AberCorran castle lie in the centre of the town. Created from an old farmhouse and outbuildings, it now offers a slice of London's West End in deepest wild Wales with the ghost of Dylan Thomas hovering around every corner and is one of the new breed of lavishly designed, voguish country hotels.
As you might expect from the new-wave trappings of the place, the kitchen overlooking the garden deals in modish contemporary dishes along the lines of sautéed lamb kidneys, chorizo, aubergine and crispy sough dough or salmon gravadlax, beetroot horseradish and poached pears amongst the starters. Main courses pick up the theme with soy ginger pork, chilli fondue, samphire and saffron potatoes or from the sea there's grilled fillet of brill, vichyssoise puree, oyster mushrooms, lemon and caviar. Elegantly displayed desserts close the show with iced peanut butter parfait with raspberry coulis or there's the Welsh cheeseboard served with biscuits and chutney.
Should you wish to extend your stay and explore the glorious Carmarthenshire countryside, The Corran Resort has 21 stylishly appointed rooms.
