Wakeley Meadow lies within the coastal Pembrokeshire national park, set back just a short distance from the jagged cliffs and deep blue coves of the St Davids headland. This position affords is splendid views out to sea and across surrounding countryside, offering the opportunity to own a small parcel of private land in one of the UK's most beautiful locations. Throughout the seaons this meadow basks in the natural splendour of it's surroundings and is a lovely place to spend time, be that in the atmospheric mists of autumn or under hot summer skies. The abundance of walking and other outdoor pursuits in the immediate vicinity make it a hub from which one can explore this magical part of West Wales.
The meadow has had prior agricultrual use, having been cut for hay in recent years. It now presents an opportunity for those intersted in planting trees or pursuing the development of a wildflower meadow, or perhaps both. It is accessed via a stoned track enabling year round vehicular access. The track terminates in the eastern section of the meadow where a small area of hardstanding provides space to park a vehicle. From here, the land spreads out in a southerly direction towards the coast in a near perfect rectangle, with substantial Pembrokeshire banks forming all four boundaries. The banks host a range of hedgerow species which act as both habitats for wildlife and a source of privacy and shelter. Additional trees could be planted along these boundaries.
The meadow's coastal location could be considered when selecting species to plant on the land, with native species strongly recommeneded such as Willow, Hawthorn, Juniper, Wild Privet or Gorse. These are also hardier species which will fare better in this location. These may be utilised at the meadow's edge, to provide a shelter belt which could shield other species more centrally. Open rides, glades or sections of meadow would also work well, providing space for plants, flowers and insects. The land is almost entirely flat in nature with just a very gentle gradient running from north to south, down towards St Brides Bay.
This meadow would be a perfect fit for those with a love of the outdoors and coastal scenery, providing a retreat where one can spend time close to nature and develop a lasting legacy for the benefit of future generations.
