Mist Meadow £55,000 Freehold


Mist Medaow lies in one of Wales' most picturesque landscapes, the foothills of the Preseli Mountains within the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park. The meadow has been managed in recent years by way of grazing sheep and now presents an opportunity to someone looking for a private parcel of land to diversify through either tree planting or rewilding. There are no public rights of way across the land although a network of renowned walking routes are within easy reach of the land.

The meadow has it's own private access gate directly from the B4329 which leads to an area of hardstanding where a vehicle can be parked. This access is in the middle of the western edge of the meadow, from where the land stretches out in an almost perfectly square shape. The boundaries are formed by Pembrokeshire banks and stock proof fencing on all sides, aside from a short section next to the entrance gate which is marked with field stakes.

The grassland is in excellent condition and has been improved over recent years with careful management. It has a south facing aspect with a gentle gradient dropping from the northern edge towards the valley in which Rosebush reservoir lies. This southerly aspect affords fantastic views over the water as well as favourable conditions for planting trees.

To the north and west the meadow is framed by the Preseli Mountains which offer a striking backdrop. Particularly nearby is Foel Eryr which is the westernmost summit on the Preseli Hills ridge, topping out at 468 metres, which lies just the other side of the B4329. This sprawling moorland landscpae is a vital habitat for wildlife whilst also a popular place for recreation. In terms of tree planting, the land would be attractive to those interested in both cartbon offsetting and amenity woodland creation, for which grants are available from the Welsh government. The Pantmaenog Forest to the east is the closest extensive woodland area to the meadow.

Mist Meadow is a canvas upon which an individual, family or small business could shape a conservation project ushering in a new phase in the history of this small corner of a famous part of Wales.

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.

Local area and history

The Preseli Mountains rise out of the landscape in the northern half of Pembrokeshire, topping out at 536m, in contrast to the relative lowlands of the south of the county. The landscape is wild moorland, heath, grassland and woodland, and is home to a wide range of plants and invertebrates. The area is popular with walkers. The nearby village of Rosebush was formed around the extensive quarrying of slate, which was historically the major economic driver of the area. The quarry supplied the slate for the roof of Westminster Palace.
