The falls are a stretch of greenery-covered rocks on the River Teifi, interspersing several small waterfalls and pools in drier seasons, turning to a dramatic view of amazing floodwaters in the rainy season. They are also well-known for the salmon leap, when the salmon travel to their spawning ground upstream.
The dominant feature of the village is the stone bridge. Built in 1787 it features a series of circular holes which make the bridge instantly recognisable.
There is a good choice of cafés and pubs in the centre of the village, including the Thatched Coffee House and Tŷ Te Tea Rooms, The Three Horseshoes and The White Hart. Local crafts and gifts can be purchased at The Old Smithy and Salmon Leap
Cenarth has a 17th Century flour mill, in the grounds of which you’ll find the Coracle Museum. Coracles are designed to be light enough to be easily carried on the shoulders of the coracle man, who would commonly walk five or ten miles upstream before drifting back down with the current, catching fish in their nets as they go.
Cenarth is a great spot to watch salmon migrating back upstream to spawn, leaping up the falls as they go. The less well-known Henllan Falls a few miles upstream from Cenarth provides similar opportunities to watch this fish migration.
