From its jagged headlands to its sweeping shores, the Pembrokeshire coastline is a uniquely beautiful stretch of West Wales. Heritage meadow has a front row seat to this natural wonder, occupying nearly 4 acres of open land just a stones throw back from the coastal path and dramatic cliffs that overlook St Brides Bay. Its location affords uninterrupted views out to sea, with dramatic sunsets a regular feature throughout the four seasons. Heritage Meadow is a place to escape to and unwind away from the stresses and strains of everyday life. A place to be still.
The land would be of interest to those with conservation, environmental and amenity interests. One may wish to bare in mind its coastal location when developing a planting plan for the meadow, which could be done in conjunction with professional consultants. It is likely that hardier species would be favoured such as Hawthorn, Sycamore, Juniper and Hornbeam. It would also be possible to incorporate a section of wildflower meadow as well as open rides and glades. The opportunity to shape the plan is one of the joys of taking on a conservation project like this.
The land itself is almost entirely flat, with just a slight gradient dropping from north to south, towards the coast. The meadow is bordered on three sides by extensive Pembrokeshire banks, providing both shelter and privacy from neighbouring land. The eastern boundary is demarcated with a line of post and rail. The land has an agricultural history and has been cut for hay in recent years.
Heritage Meadow presents an opportunity to own a small section of this renowned part of Pembrokeshire, providing a canvas for conservation as well as a base to adventure from as you explore the landscapes nearby. There are a number of activities readily available for all those with a love of outdoor pursuits and coastal sports.
In terms of finding the meadow, when heading along the A487 from Solva towards St Davids, look out for a turning on your left signed posted to ‘Trelerw’ and leave the main road here. There is also a “planting land for sale” sign on the verge next to the turning. This turning is located in between the hamlet of Nine Wells and the Texaco garage on the outskirts of St Davids. After turning, follow this smaller road for roughly 250m and the entrance gate will be on your left hand side, marked by another sign. Please park here and climb the gate. Looking slightly to your right and follow the access track which runs diagonally across a small field and then along the left hand side of a much larger field. Turn 90 degrees to your left at the bottom and follow the track for a further 100m, at which point Heritage Meadow will be on your right hand side. A map marking the access track can be found under the ‘Wood Maps’ tab.
The purchasers of the land will be asked to enter into a covenant to ensure the quiet and peaceful enjoyment of adjoining woodlands and meadows.

There is a bridleway approximately 250m to the north of the meadow, which adjoins the main access track, which can be used to directly access the Pembrokeshire coastal path.
There local area is regarded as a haven for a variety of outdoor pursuits including walking, nature watching, cycling, diving, coasteering, surfing and climbing to name a few. A number of excellent beaches are within easy reach of the meadow including Whitesands Bay, Newgale and Little Haven.
Local area and history
St Davids is Britain’s smallest city and the final resting place of the eponymous Patron Saint of Wales. Formerly an important religious centre, exemplified by the historic Cathedral and Bishop’s Palace, the area is now a haven for walking and other outdoor pursuits, particularly renowned for the landscapes of the Pembrokeshire coastal path. St Bride’s Bay, demarcated by Skomer island to the South and Ramsey island to the North, provides a striking backdrop to this section of coastal Wales.
