Local Info

The hamlet of Nine Wells, situated between Solva and St.Davids, is the ideal location with all of the fantastic features that make Pembrokeshire special.


Within a few miles you find a diverse range of beaches each with individual character and features. There are the internationally acclaimed blue flag, sandy beaches including Newgale and Whitesands Bay, pretty fishing harbours and secluded beaches with rock pools. 


Cliff path

It takes just a short walk to access the famous and spectacular 186mile Pembrokeshire cliff path where you will witness breath taking scenery and the opportunity to spot various wildlife which ever direction you choose to go. Pembrokeshire's coastal Puffin Bus can drop you back at the door so you wont need to retrace your steps if you don't want to.



Nine Wells used by pilgrims to quench their thirst on their path to St. Davids.  It is within half a mile of an iron age fort, second world war aerodrome, one mile from Solva the site of viking invasion. There are visible ship wrecks to be seen from the cliff edge, restored water driven woollen mills, remains of lime kilns, mine workings and bygone industrial harbours. St. Davids, the smallest city in Great Britain, retains both the Cathedral and Bishops Palace built from the same purple Preseli stone as Stonehenge.


Wildlife & Nature

Pembrokeshire's unspoilt and rugged landscape offers the perfect habitat for a plethora of native and migratory  species. The National Park helps to protect the habitat along its coast and some inland nature reserves to maintain the biodiversity that we can see and enjoy. The islands off the coast offer the chance to see huge colonies of gannets, puffins, kittiwakes, guillemots, fulmars, razorbills and manx shearwaters. Grey seals can be found on the islands and remote coves along the coast. There are several varieties of shark the most common being the basking shark.  Porpoise and dolphin can be seen regularly and sunfish and orcas can also be seen if you are lucky.

Choughs, peregrines, buzzard, kites and ravens are native to the area and smaller birds include skylarks, meadow pipits, linnets, stonechats and wheatears. 

The gorse, heather, thrift and sea campion are the backdrop to much of the landscape with wild ponies grazing amongst them on the cliff edges. Whilst wooded valleys offer wild honey suckle with ferns and lichen in abundance. There are many species of bats, butterflies and moths. The wild flowers are spectacular from spring through to the autumn with too many varieties to list.

There are many wildlife and boat tours from nearby harbours or for land lubbers there are beach safaris, foraging walks and adder spotting events to name but a few.
