Situated between the charming fishing village of Solva and Britain's smallest city, St Davids, Burrows Meadow occupies just over 2 3/4 acres of scenic meadowland along one of the United Kingdom's most stunning coastlines. This West Wales region is renowned for its picturesque shores and rugged headlands, offering some of the most spectacular scenery and hiking opportunities in the country.
The land itself is positioned just a short distance from the coastal path offering an almost uninterrupted vista out to sea. St Bride’s Bay dominates the western frontier of South West Wales and is demarcated by Skomer Island to the south and Ramsey Island to the north. The dynamic seas and expressive skies present ever-changing panoramas to savour year-round, with the joy of watching the sun set over the western horizon being a distinct delight.
Burrows Meadow gently slopes from north to south, facilitating natural drainage toward the sea. Three of its boundaries (west, north, and east) are marked by substantial Pembrokeshire banks, while the southern boundary is defined by post and rail fencing. These banks, composed of a combination of stone, earth, stockproof fencing, and hedgerow species, not only offer privacy from neighbouring properties but also serve as a windbreak.
In recent years, this land has been utilized for agricultural purposes, serving as pastures and hayfields. While the coastal location offers a captivating backdrop, its proximity to the sea necessitates thoughtful consideration when selecting the types of trees to plant. The traditional Pembrokeshire banks encircling the meadow provide some protection from the elements, yet careful species selection is advisable. Consider planting hardy varieties like sycamore, juniper, hornbeam, or hawthorn, especially along the meadow's perimeter to establish a shelter belt for the inner areas.
Burrows Meadow would appeal to outdoor enthusiasts seeking a manageable, private parcel of land. It serves as an excellent starting point for exploring the nearby landscapes.
To locate 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. Follow the track which leads straight ahead of you across the first field to the gap in the hedgerow - the entrance to Burrows Meadow is about 10 metres down on your right hand side.
The purchasers of the meadow will be asked to enter into a covenant to ensure the quiet and peaceful enjoyment of adjoining woodlands and meadows.
