About the property


Set in Pembrokeshire’s beautiful National Park, Ty Canol is one of two five-star, attractive, stone and slate cottages situated at Porthiddy Farm West, which has been farmed since at least 1340. Walk 500 yards through our fields, or along the lane, to Abereiddy beach to enjoy the sand, pebbles and rock pools, discover the hidden caves while coasteering or kayaking and explore the coast-path with its stunning scenery and amazing wildlife.

These high-quality cottages are in a quiet location with access to restaurants, tea-rooms and pubs at nearby villages and harbours. St David’s, the smallest cathedral city in Britain, is close by.

About Margaret Pike

We fell in love with St David’s Peninsula over 25 years ago when we began kayaking in the area. We became such frequent visitors that we bought a holiday-home in St David’s and, in 2001, we moved to Porthiddy Farm West, above Abereiddy, where we live today.

When we moved here my husband brought his business in Renewable Energy and I changed my career from teaching to work within the company.

Margaret Pike purchased this cottage in 2001

Why Margaret Pike chose Llanrhian

We feel privileged to live in Pembrokeshire Coast National Park with the sea on our doorstep. At Porthiddy, we are surrounded by stunning scenery. To the west is Abereiddy with its iconic tower; to the north a gorse-lined valley; to the east, Strumble Head, with the flashing light of the lighthouse; and to the south, cows graze on the hillside. On a cloudless night, our remoteness offers fantastic opportunities for star-gazing.

What makes this cottage unique

Our high-quality accommodation is within minutes from the beach, rock pools, sand, pebbles, fossils, historical buildings, the Blue Lagoon and 180 miles of coast path.

Absolutely immaculate, well equipped cosy cottage in a beautiful location! We will be back!

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is immaculately presented and the owner has thought of everything to ensure a comfortable stay. Dishwasher, washer dryer, supply of cleaning materials and essentials such as tea, coffee, sugar and milk on arrival were a lovely touch. The area is absolutely beautiful and the walk through the fields to Abereiddy beach and a little further to Blue lagoon is fabulous! Within 15-45 minutes drive of the cottage local convenience stores, a range of beautiful beaches, charming towns and bigger attractions (Blue Lagoon water park, Folly farm) can be found.

This was my first visit to Pembrokeshire with my husband, 5 year old son and new baby daughter and we had a wonderful time! My son declared he wanted to move to Wales and was very sad to come home! We have recommended the cottage already to family and friends and would definitely return in the future!!

Lovely,warm and welcoming.

  • 5 of 5

Grand welcome from Margaret, lovely lemon cake and helpful information for our stay.

Bwthyn Hir is well situated for walking the coastal path, with lots of walk leaflets , books and map to use whilst staying there. Margaret's recommendations for places to eat were excellent. We 'did The Shed' in Porthgain for lunch, afternoon tea and supper, the food and staff were really very good.

Bwthyn Hir

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a fabulous stay at Bwthyn Hir cottage in Abereiddy. The cottage is very well equipped, very clean and bright. The patio area at the front of the cottage is wonderful at night for star gazing as there is virtually no light pollution. Margaret the owner was very friendly and gave us freshly made lemon cake. The walk through the fields down to the beach is amazing as is the rock pools on the beach itself. A good walk over the hill to Porthgain and a spot of lunch at the Sloop Inn oh I wish I were back already. Pre-booking your grocery's for delivery would be a good idea.

Family Break

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is beautifully located and really well equipped, clean and comfortable.. We spent a very relaxing time in this cottage and the owners could not have done more to ensure that everything was as it should be. I would absolutely recommend to friends and family and am looking forward to visiting again myself. Excellent.
