National Coracle Centre

Cenarth Falls
Newcastle Emlyn
SA38 9JL

The National Coracle Centre is situated beside the beautiful Cenarth Falls, and houses a unique collection of coracles from all over the world, including Tibet, India, Iraq, Vietnam and North America.

Coracles probably date back to the Ice Age, and these once skin-covered boats are still made and used for salmon fishing in West Wales today. The workshop is an important part of the Centre and the ancient craft of coracle making is displayed here. There are also various implements and methods used for the equally ancient art of poaching.

For centuries Cenarth was the centre of coracle fishing, and during the summer holidays coracles are often on the river and rides are available. Demonstrations for organised groups can be arranged. The Coracle Centre stands in the grounds of the 17th Century flour mill which is included in your visit, Viewing areas and pathways allow easy access for disabled people and provide wonderful views of the falls, salmon leap and 200 year old bridge.
