Small but very interesting history site with a great deal on the history of the coracle and the mill. Well worth a visit. Nice gift shop too!

Travelled some way to get here only to find it closed. The website is not easy to use. Whats more we asked at the car park across the river and was told it was the right place. The chap took our money even though he must have known it would be open. There is free parking on the same side... More

... and all collected together under one roof. A fascinating browse with an informative and friendly talk from the curator. So many stories that I couldn't do justice to them here, but well worth a visit, along with the old mill which is part of the complex. Ask about Hannah Rees and William Richards. Plus there's a lovely café next... More

Visited early afternoon. Spent about an hour looking around the 1 room exhibition, and the associated watermill. The site of this attraction adjacent to the Cenarth Falls gives you natural wonders to enjoy as well.

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.
