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

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

We had not realised that the use of coracles was so international. As well as coracles from various parts of Wales they have them from Tibet, Vietnam and North America among others.

I have already railed elsewhere on Tripadvisor about Cenarth, a beauty spot that the inhabitants are trying their best to destroy. Now it is the turn of the main attraction apart from the falls and river. Bundled together are the National Coracle Centre, The Water Mill and the obligatory souvenir and antique shop. I have never been especially fond of... More

Whilst staying at the cottage next door to the Coracle Centre it made sense to pay a visit. There was lots to see and learn and the proprietor was really helpful and knowledgeable. There was a surprise for us as well as one of the photos showed the floods in Bangor On Dee many years ago and The Buck House... More

This is one of those quirky little places that you might miss, but is well worth a visit! It's well laid out and Martin is charming and so keen to share his knowledge - we loved it!
