Great location, fantastic long weekend. Welsh Grands Slam, a birthday celebration & Mother’s Day Great welcome in The Sloop, fab food in the Shed. We will definitely come back to stay in Porthgain again.
Great house, full of character Pip loved the Aga in her bedroom! The Sloop food & Welsh scrumpy cider were great Had a very relaxed week. The Shed take out fish & chips a godsend when I couldn’t be bothered to cook.. We will hopefully be back in future. Cheers.
It was a lovely time, no complaints.. I love the view was beautiful so lovely. The TV had great channels & choices It is great here as it is right next to loads of beaches & a great theme park Love it Thank you!
This is one of the best holiday cottages ever! I loved eating the crab & lobster & the Sloop Inn. Also I LOVED the beach because there are plenty of shells to collect & I have found a lobster leg & a crab claw. From Jasmine.
Really lovely house & so well equipped! Beautifully clean on our arrival. Have been visiting Porthgain for ?36 years & have always wanted to stay in this house & it was all we could have hoped for. Aga v welcome as it’s v cold for this time in May.Thank you for sharing this lovely house with us!
Lovely to be back again, weather was marvelous all week & house as lovely as every. Will be back.
Without doubt the most pleasant & comfortable &well situated accommodation we have stayed in this year.
So good to be back in this wonderful house. 28 years since our last visit!Well worth the wait despite the weather High winds & very heavy rain. So glad you replaced the windows!
An interesting week in our Porthgain favourite, Kiln House. A seal in the harbor & more in the bays. Some fine weather & a day & night of wild wind & rain – thank goodness for the new windows. A firework display in the harbour.
Comfortable & quirky cottage. The Aga was invaluable for drying clothes & walking boots….
Undoubtedly this house offers the best views in Porthgain combined with interesting topography. Comfortable accommodation. Saw 2 seal pups in the harbour Very enjoyable week ‘Probably the best views for washing up in the world’. Lovely time will miss that view, hope to return.
Back after a 10yr absence. Forgot how much we liked this cottage. Will miss the early morning walks with Leah. Wonderful area.
We’ve had a wonderful week. Weather forecast for the west was atrocious but the weather’s been fine, apart from Wednesday. We’ve managed to get out & have great walks every day! This is the 3rd or 4th time we’ve stayed at the Kiln & it never fails to deliver. We’ve been very comfortable & the Aga was great for keeping the dog warm, the clothes dry &was great for cooking too! Thank you for a great week. I am sure we will come again one day
An amazing place with wonderful views to sit and watch the world or the sea go by
The house was one of the best cottages that we have ever stayed in and my 7 yr old said the house was "mega cool". The cliff walks from the back door of Kiln House to Abereiddy were worth being here just for that but above all we felt at home here and enjoyed the impressive seaside views.
Excellent views and atmosphere. Very relaxing weekend. Accommodation felt right from the second we got here. Dogs enjoyed the freedom.
Wonderful wild weather - fantastic break. Cleared the Christmas cobwebs.
First visit to Kiln House, This is a perfet location - good food and good beer on the doorstep. I'm glad we decided to alter our weeks holiday so that we could stay at Kiln House. It lived up to all expectations.
16th year although first in October. Why have we waited this long to come in the Autumn?! Fantastic weather - very mild. Highlights included evening trip for stargazing, many great walks and of course The Sloop. Weather clear, harbour lovely, saw a seal come right in.
As great a place as ever - our 4th visit - updated bathrooms a great improvement
Lovely holiday, loved Porthgain and children really enjoyed the harbour. Great to find somewhere that takes dogs close to the sea.
Brilliant house, brilliant location, brilliant pub!! Porthgain is a really interesting place, especially watching the life in the harbour.
Our first (and not our last) visit to Kiln House. Will always remember finally seeing the house for real after only seeing pics online. Wow!!! An idyllic location - so many places to go and to see. Food in the Sloop was amazing. Will definitely be back.
Thank you for a brilliant week. It's a picture postcard house in real life. Very well equipped and lots of space.
How lovely to find Kiln House just as lovely, homely comfortable and unchanged from our visits 12 and more years ago. The new bathrooms and appliances much apreciated though. This house must have given so many people such pleasure over the years - long may it continue. Thank you.
First stay in Kiln House, although not the first time in Porthgain.Great house in stunning location-we will miss waking up to the sound of the sea, as well as the Aga! Walking out of the door onto the coastal path is wonderful.We had a great time and hope to come back.
13th visit to Kiln House but first at Easter-great to have it staying light later!Thanks for another excellent holiday, the house was perfect as usual and the setting even better!House great, the Sloop even better-if only the parents woudl learn to control their drinking!!
Idyllic setting, great walks, lovely house,excellent beaches, nice pubs.What more do you want?
Out of all the places I have been on holiday, this has to be one of my favourite places to go.My brother sister and I are hoping to buy the place when we are older and rich enough.I cant wait until the next time I come.Thank you very much for a wonderful time (Ruth 14yrs)
Wonderful house in stunning location-will miss the views and sound of the sea.Great walking from the door!Sloop and Shed both highly recommended.
Great cottage and the views from the sitting room window are wonderful;very warm and cosy.Love the aga
Lovely cottage with beautiful views.Enjoyed watching the porpoises and seals from the cliff which is only a short walk away.Hope to come again soon.Loved the round window in the second bedroom.
Excellent holiday yet again-weather fantastic.Porpoises and seals seen off St Davids Head.The annual treasure hunt around the village and fishing for crabs off the rocks and from the quay kept the children amused (well they are 20 and 21 now!)A perfect way to chill out from work and uni.Already looking forward to our next visit
Have always been told that May is the best time of year to come-having finally managed it, know that it is true! Fabulous weather-glorious coast path walks, the flowers have been unbelievable. Back in the summer.
Like the owners we have kept an eye on this place when visiting Portgain over the years-like it even more having stayed here.Top tip-catch the bus to Abercastle and walk back over the coast path and you will enjoy your beer at The Sloop even more...
First visit here,thoroughly enjoyed our week.Great house-loved the Aga;want one!Loved all the walks and the sunsets were amazing. Happy dog too!
A really relaxing week.Last week of the excellent bus service-we made use to Solva, Whitesands and St Justinians.House is looking very smart with redecoration and carpets.Will be back again
