The Cambrian Inn is a thriving and highly profitable inn which enjoys a prime location on the main road leading into Solva. The village, which is nestled in the Pembrokeshire National Park a few miles from St David’s, boasts a picturesque harbour, bustling quay, and a charming high street, with an array of craft shops, cafés and art galleries.

The area is a tourist hotspot which attracts visitors year-round thanks to its Blue Flag beaches, sublime walking tracks along the Pembrokeshire National Coast Path, stunning views, and wide range of water-based activities such as sailing, sea angling and rowing.

The family-owned inn has been operated by Jeremy Barton and his family since 2012 and has long been renowned as a popular destination pub due to its summer terrace, high-quality food and beverage offering and welcoming atmosphere. The inn also features five stylish en suite letting bedrooms across the first and second floors, making it an ideal base to explore the surrounding area.

The family has decided to bring the inn to market as they are now seeking a lifestyle change.

Jeremy comments, “A decade ago, when my wife and I were looking to settle back in the UK after being abroad for 15 years, Pembrokeshire was the obvious choice with its stunning scenery, beaches and space. We were lucky enough to find The Cambrian Inn in Solva, a popular and very pretty harbour village. It was under traded and needed work but we, together with the help of a great team, have taken it from a sleepy village pub to a popular destination pub-restaurant with rooms. The business is thriving and there is clearly more potential but we both have other business interests out of the hospitality sector and feel we can’t give The Cambrian Inn the attention it deserves going forward, so it feels like the right time for new owners to take it on and fully capitalise on a booming market.”

The sale of The Cambrian Inn presents a rare opportunity to acquire a substantial and reputable destination pub in a popular tourist location, with scope to expand the building and business.

Marc Blackford, Associate Director in Christie & Co’s Hospitality team, who is handling the sale, comments, “With coastal areas in high demand and the surge in staycations likely to continue over the next few years, this is a fantastic opportunity to acquire an established freehold business in one of Wales’ most desirable spots.”

Cambrian Inn is available on a freehold basis with a guide price of £1,250,000.
