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

Well set out and interesting. Needs about 3/4hr to read everything in the smallish room. Avoid the Scone /welsh tea at the Salmon Leap across the bridge. Worst scones I have ever tasted. Could have played cricket with them. Also the Welsh cakes.

Followed the signs, went in the shop, ignored by a very bored shopkeeper- no signs or details of the centre so went back out. We could have asked but why should we/ A smile and a greeting costs nothing

I must admit that for some reason I thought this centre wouldn't be worth the visit and so had driven past it several times. How wrong I was! Although packed into a fairly small area it is full of useful and really interesting information, tales and photographs. Also stories of the coracle from different parts of the world. Like another...

Stuffed full of info about all types of coracles and the wonderful characters who built and paddled them. A wood frame covered in skin doesn't sound that interesting but visit this place and change your mind. Entry fee is modest and includes a visit to an old water mill that is being restored. See all the old wooden gear and... More
