Enjoy the best of Wales

The waterfalls at Cenarth.

Cenarth Falls is a beautiful spot in which to enjoy all that is best about Wales. We’re just a short stroll from the famous falls where the salmon can be seen leaping, and there’s a beautiful riverside walk through the village ­ an ideal way to enjoy a summer’s evening.



On a more practical note the village offers a shop & filling station, two pubs, a tea room, cafe & gift shop and The National Coracle Centre. Newcastle Emlyn is just 3 miles away on the A484 with Cardigan and the coast 7 miles in the opposite direction. A bus service operates between the two if you don’t fancy driving!

The Preseli Hills of Northern Pembrokeshire can provide stunning views as far off as North Wales – just head towards Crymych (about 10 miles) and you can’t miss them! The bluestones used to build Stonehenge originated from here.

The Golden Road, running along the spine of the Preseli Hills (Mynydd Preseli), is one of the finest high ground walking ways in Wales.

This gently undulating route, with views as far as Ireland, deep into South Wales, and north up the majestic arc of Cardigan Bay towards Snowdonia, links ancient monuments and burial places, cairns and rocky tors.

Its star features are two of the possible quarries from which stones are believed to have been taken to Stonehenge 4000 years ago.

A short distance from the Park are numerous safe sandy beaches offering something for all ages from secluded coves and rock pools to areas for birdwatching, walking or even keeping a lookout for the dolphins of Cardigan Bay! Boat trips exploring the Bay on wildlife spotting excursions are a very entertaining way to spend a few hours.

Poppit Sands

Poppit Sands on the south side of Cardigan.


Within an easy drive is the magnificent Pembrokeshire Coast National Park where the majestic beauty of the Welsh coastline can be appreciated, whilst the National Botanic Gardens and restored gardens at Aberglasney are always popular visits with our guests. The National Trust offers a glimpse of how life was lived on an 18th century Welsh country estate at Llanerchaeron and a visit to St. Davids with its “smallest city” status, magnificent Cathedral and Bishops Palace make it a great day out.  Golfers, walkers and fishermen will be spoilt for choice, and local attractions within the Teifi Valley include Cenarth’s National Coracle Centre and the famous cheesemakers at Caws Cenarth Cheese.

The well known family attractions of Oakwood Theme Park and Folly Farm Adventure Park & Zoo (meet the only Giraffes in Wales) are just two of a whole host of fun days out, and even a day trip to Ireland is possible from nearby Fishguard.
