Kilgetty and Begelly
Begelly and Kilgetty have a long mining history and in 1581 there were so many workings in Begelly near the highway from Tenby to Haverfordwest, that no one dared to pass over it in a carriage or cart because of the danger of subsidence!
In 1834 the railway was opened to take the coal from the Begelly pits down to Saundersfoot.
Folly Farm Adventure Park and Zoo started as a humble farm park but has grown over the years to become an award-winning children’s adventure park with a zoo, vintage funfair and indoor and outdoor adventure play as well as the farm attractions.
Food and drink
Kilgetty has a number of pubs, a cafe, restaurant and a couple of takeaways plus a sweet shop!
There are one or two guesthouses and B&Bs in Kilgetty and Begelly and also in neighbouring villages, although most of the accommodation is nearer to the coast. There are several camping sites and touring caravan sites nearby. There are also several holiday parks where you can rent self catering static caravans at Amroth, Wisemans Bridge and Saundersfoot.
