Cenarth Falls are a series of picturesque waterfalls on the river Teifi on the county borders of Ceredigion, Carmarthenshire and Pembrokeshire. The falls cascade gracefully over a series of moss-covered rocks, creating a mesmerising spectacle that attracts visitors from far and wide. This peaceful, calm waterfall becomes a raging torrent after significant rainfall and floods the riverside car park... so beware!
The Falls are a well-known salmon leap, being the first major obstacle on the river Teifi to salmon swimming upstream to spawn. The best time see salmon leaping is in the Autumn.
Cenarth Falls River Walks
Starting from the beautiful stone bridge or the riverside car park, there is a beautiful scenic walk along the riverside.
Apart from a caravan park, there two are pubs, cafes and other interesting shops to browse, including the National Coracle Centre. Thee riverside car park is not large but provides a perfect place to explore the river and the falls.
National Coracle Centre
The National Coracle Centre is set in the grounds of the 17th century flour mill, on the banks of the river Teifi. A coracle is an ancient fishing boat, typically weighing between 25-40 pounds (11-18kg) and built with a basket framework covered with canvas and tar. Fishermen used to walk 5-10 miles up the River Teifi, before drifting back down, hoping to catch salmon or trout.
