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 St Brides Bay, St Davids & The West Coast
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.

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.
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.
