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!

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.

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.
