OUR HOLIDAY COTTAGES IN PORTHGAIN

Named one of ‘Britain’s prettiest fishing villages’ by BBC Countryfile Magazine, Porthgain is a popular hamlet in the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park.

Set around a traditional village green, Porthgain was at one time a small commercial harbour used for exporting stone from the nearby quarry. Today it’s mostly used for fishing and recreation.

Huge red-brick hoppers – once used for storing crushed granite – overlook the harbour to this day. These structures add to Porthgain’s distinctive character and provide a lasting reminder of its industrial past.

For refreshment, head to The Sloop Inn, a quaint pub said to have once been a smugglers’ haunt but now enjoyed by locals and visitors alike. There’s also The Shed, a relaxed and informal fish and chip bistro.

Situated between St Davids and Fishguard, Porthgain has even caught the eye of filmmakers. The harbour was chosen as a location for the 2016 film, Their Finest, starring Gemma Arterton, Bill Nighy and Sam Claflin.

And if you’re looking to explore the Pembrokeshire Coast Path, the picturesque village is an ideal base. From here you can walk to Abereiddy Beach and the famous Blue Lagoon, a former quarry now popular for watersports. Along the way you can take in the impressive clifftop views.
