The village of Kilgetty is situated approximately five miles north of Tenby in the undulating countryside of South Pembrokeshire. Kilgetty, which may have been formed from the Welsh Cil (a nook) and the personal name ‘Cetti’, has developed as a service centre and has enjoyed considerable expansion over the last thirty years despite the reduced role of the railway.
In 1984 the Kilgetty Bypass was opened. Apart from the pedestrian underpass the realignment of the A477 has separated Kingsmoor village from Kilgetty. The location of Kilgetty on the junction of the A477T and the A478 makes it the gateway to the south of the County and in particular to the acclaimed coastline of the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park.
Kilgetty has a good range of shops, including a supermarket, grocery shop, chemist, curtain specialist shop, car salesroom, hairdresser and barber. Begelly has a bakery and two garages. There is also a fish ‘n’ chip shop, Chinese take-away, two public houses, a cafe and gift shop. Accommodation is available at Manian Lodge, Begelly Arms, B & B guest houses and caravan sites.
