These spectacular falls are situated in the village of Cenarth on the border of Pembrokeshire, Ceredigion and Carmarthenshirin deep in rural in Wales. They form part of the River Teifi and are famously known for the ‘salmon leap’ which is a wonderful sight in the autumn as the fish come up the river to return to their native spawning grounds. The River Teifi flows from the Cambrian Mountains to the estuary at Cardigan, a journey of 75 miles, making it is the longest ‘wholly’ Welsh river.
This peaceful and very pretty location is more impressive after rainfall as the river becomes an animated force propelling the water twisting and turning until it comes to the falls where it drops cascading over the rocks. The falls and surrounding countryside are ever changing throughout the seasons, its beauty never fading even on a winter’s day.
On the south bank, just upstream of the falls, lies an old flour mill which in the 19th and 20th centuries was powered by the river. Today the mill is silent but just waiting to form the backdrop of a picture or painting.
Situated in the nearby village is the Coracle Museum. This small unusual museum is dedicated to the history of the vessel which can be found in use all around the world.
This beautiful part of the UK is an ideal location for anyone who has a love of fishing and wants to take it easy in a peaceful setting. It is good walking country and the scenery will be inspirational to anyone wanting to take spectacular photographs or to paint. Bird watching is good with many native birds residing by water. The location is suitable for families.
