about the property

Stylish fisherman’s cottage in the pretty harbour village Porthgain in Pembrokeshire, West Wales.

Tŷ Jac is a delightful detached, timber-clad fisherman’s cottage located in the very popular coastal hamlet of Porthgain. Porthgain is a beautiful little village: it is easy to see why it attracts artists and photographers in their droves - you will fall in love with the harbour and its surrounding coastal walks. Stroll down to the harbour, or over to the popular Sloop public house and make sure you eat at The Shed restaurant, all these are a few minutes walk from your cottage. You have some fabulous local art galleries as your neighbours and a footpath leading to the coastal path from the garden. The coastal path runs right through Porthgain and offers walks to stunning Abereiddy, with renowned blue lagoon and beach and also Traeth Llyfn – with steps right down to the sandy beach, which is less than a mile away.

When you open the front door to Tŷ Jac, you will be surprised at how much natural light flows through the property and the impressive open plan living space with vaulted ceilings most certainly offers the 'wow' factor. The property is stylishly decorated with a large wood burner in the lounge providing a welcoming focal point on a winter's evening.

Tŷ Jac is a perfect bolthole for couples or up to 6 guests.

You will fall in love with this lovely cottage in the most spectacular location - we did!

customer reviews for Tŷ Jac

A lovely break in a wonderful part of Wales. Ty Jac is beautifully decorated and furnished with everything you might need available. Comfortable beds and a great bath! Porthgain is right on the Coastal Path for spectacular walks with The Shed and The Sloop a few minutes away. Melin Tregwynt is well worth a visit, as well as beautiful St David's. Would definitely return.

- Ann D,

We had a lovely Christmas break at Ty Jac. The house is wonderful, and very well equipped. We enjoyed coastal walks as well as meals at The Shed and The Sloop, both well worth a visit. We can thoroughly recommend Ty Jac for a relaxing and enjoyable holiday.

- Caroline W,

We had a wonderful week in this beautiful cottage. The house is beautifully presented and has a feeling of calm. The kitchen is well equipped. The beds are very comfortable. On sunny days the decking area was a great place for breakfast. A great position just a minutes walk from the quay in Porthgain, which has 2 good places to eat. Great place to explore the whole of the north Pembrokeshire coast from. We would definitely return.

- Vanessa P,

Beautifully decorated, spacious house - perfect for lazy days in or a base for walks, beach days, swimming and generally exploring stunning Pembrokeshire. Well equipped and clearly a really loved home. Being in a village with a couple of places to eat really mattered to us, and we’ve loved The Sloop and The Shed.

- Vicky lagden ,

We enjoyed a wonderful week in Porthgain. The cottage and setting were beautiful and the weather was amazing. Our daughter has never had as much fun as she did on the fantastic Pembrokeshire beaches. The accommodation was perfect for us and we would love to return.

- Anna G,

Great place to stay, both the village and the house. Ty Jac is obviously someone's personal holiday escape and its great to find somewhere like that where you have the comforts of home instead of a bland holiday box house. Very comfortable and interesting. Thanks to the owners for making this available. The Ryalls family.

- Adrian R,

Fabulous cottage in a wonderful setting. Instructions very good and only issue was the pressure to get the bins out and leave no bin bags! We would definitely return. Thank you

- Nigel D,

Just returned from a relaxing and much needed weekend spent with 2 friends in Ty Jac. A lovely eclectically decorated and furnished property, great for summer but equally welcoming and cosy in the winter. Loved the big sofas, so comfortable. Could willingly have stayed there for 3 months not 3 nights

- Cheryl O,

What can I say? This place is magical! From the moment we arrived, it felt so special. Ty Jac is very loved and you feel that the owners care about their guests. Beautifully designed, it has a lovely feel to it which made it very relaxing, with all your needs taken care of. Great welcome information, comfy sofas and beds, beautiful bath and shower with piping hot water, and a kitchen with all your needs catered for. It is perfectly located, and we enjoyed the coastal path walks, as well as visits to other local beaches. We don't usually return to the same place, but Ty Jac would definitely be on our list again! Thank you for such a wonderful time. X

- Amber dalwood D,

Great house marvellous location

- Martin B,

We loved Ty Jac. You can tell that it’s been restored with love. We visited as three couples and, even though the third bedroom was a bit snug, we coped fine. Porthgain was a great find. Fish&chip restaurant, The She’d, and The Sloop pub are both doing takeaway food and drink. There is plenty of outside seating and a great Social Distance atmosphere. Great walks and scenery. I thoroughly recommend Ty Jac as a great place to explore this part of the wonderful Pembrokeshire.

- Stephanie B,

Excellent accommodation - well presented and equipped. Great coastal walks and beaches. Porthgain is a friendly place - good pub and fish rerstaurant. Recommended!

- Peter C,

Perfect holiday accomodation was first class., well equipped and lovely and warm. Thoroughly enjoyed the time there and will book again . Only downside was the fact that we couldn't find any keys to open the windows.
