A very sweet, coastal cottage by the picturesque harbour in Porthgain. Pretty hamlet with super pub and restaurant and walks galore. A great holiday venue any time of the year.

Just metres from a picturesque harbour, this sweet and cosy cottage makes a delightful holiday retreat for two. Originally built for workers in the local quarry, the cottage has been beautifully updated and tastefully decorated, and retains original exposed ceiling beams. Ideal for a couple exploring a spellbinding part of Pembrokeshire, this charming traditional cottage offers airy and refreshing holiday accommodation for keen walkers, water sports enthusiasts and nature lovers. The cottage sits at the heart of Porthgain, a pretty hamlet ideally situated along the Pembrokeshire Coast Path.

The chic lounge provides a perfect space for relaxation at the end of a fantastic day, with cosy seating and a TV, so you can unwind with a good book or favourite movie. The stylish kitchen/diner is equipped with a useful range of accessories, and is beneath a traditional crog loft gallery. The ground floor also features a wet room. Following a substantial refurbishment in 2018, a new staircase leads up to the characterful mezzanine bedroom in the gallery, with a king-size bed, exposed beams and low sloping ceilings with restricted head height. Outside, a patio to the front of the property has outdoor furniture and makes a pleasant spot for a glass of wine in the evening as you listen to the waves lapping at the shoreline.

Porthgain is a thriving hamlet with a pub, restaurant and art galleries around the harbour, and is a popular spot for kayaking, as well as being a fantastic base for walkers. Local landmarks include the Blue Lagoon of Abereiddy (2 miles), the secluded beach of Traeth Llyfn (1 mile), Strumble Head Lighthouse (13 miles) and the mill at Melin Tregwynt (8 miles). Also within easy reach are the historic city of St Davids (8 miles) and the pretty seaside town of Fishguard (11.5 miles).
