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
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!
I spent a really enjoyable hour at the museum and enjoyed both the coracle room and a stroll down to the mill. The coracle room was full of interesting information and it was easy to digest as it was written in short bursts which held my interest. There were lots of photographs and local recollections in addition to the coracles... More
A friendly and informed guy was running the place when we visited. For £2.50 an adult you get a guided tour of the room next to the shop which includes a demonstration of how to get into and use a coracle for fishing or exploring. Various types of craft are distributed around this room and each has a story which... More
