Coracle Centre may be small but contains many interesting artefacts. The owner is very friendly and extremely knowledgeable. The mill is is slowly being renovated, but requires funds. However, overall the centre should not be missed.

Visited the Coracle Centre with a coach party, the owner gave a very interesting, informative talk with a good sense of humour included. Would certainly recommend this fascinating centre to anyone (young or old), there is also a very good café beside it.

Visited here whilst on holiday. The lady who conducted the tour was very informative and the children enjoyed sitting in a coracle. Attraction is small but is packed with interesting artefacts. Thought it was expensive for what it was, but interesting.

Just across the river is the coracle centre and an old mill. It's £3 per adult to get in. Quite small but quite fascinating particularly the man who owns it? who brings it all to life. He actually used to fish on the river with coracles and obviously loves his work! The mill is quite run down and again not... More

Well worth a visit, small museum with a talk from the owner followed by a visit to the mill. Children really enjoyed getting into the coracle and we learnt about the history of coracles and use around the world

Please note this is only open from Easter to September. Went today on the advice of TripAdvisor which stated that it was open, only to find that it was closed. Very disappointed

A very interesting small musuem. Make sure you do not miss the short talk by the owner, it makes it.

We visited on 1 October. On arrival we were given a very interesting talk about coracles: their history and their distribution around the world; the speaker also demonstrated how coracles are used. The Centre has numerous coracles from all over the world. There is also a water mill (not currently working) to see. We very much enjoyed our visit and... More

What a really surprising little place - lovely man gave us a little talk about the coracles from all over the world and then let me sit in one. Brilliant. So much info - did not realise so many countries have made and used them. So so interesting. A must visit. Beautiful position next to the Cenarth Falls.

Small but so much information. You could touch the exhibits too and sit in the coracle. Gentleman who took our money took us into the exhibition and told us about it and demonstrated how coracles are used. Well worth a look. Your admission price also includes the water mill which is now disused but there wasn't much to see there... More
