West Wales See & Do - Cenarth Falls Walk

We found a new walk to explore at a beauty spot, where the borders of Ceredigion, Carmarthenshire and Pembrokeshire meet.

Cenarth Falls is just 7 miles from Cardigan, or 3 miles from Newcastle Emlyn in the opposite direction. You start the circular walk from the car park just next to the 18th Century Bridge, which operates on an honesty box basis, so be sure to have some loose change. ( Suggested donation is £2.50). Continuing on the elevated wooden pathway, that is currently being built for wheelchair access, you find yourself walking alongside the river Teifi. The wooden pathway soon runs out as it is still under construction, and care needs to be taken on the slippery and uneven single-track path that continues through the woodland, along the bank of the river, which is likely a lot less challenging to negotiate in drier seasons! This picturesque woodland walk along the riverbank is perfect for photograph opportunities,, so we stopped often to take it all in...

At just over the halfway point of the walk, the path widens and starts to bring you back in a circle through the woodland up a short, but fairly steep hill, along a country lane and back down into the village.

Slightly precarious path due to recent weather but an impressive new wheelchair friendly walkway is currently under construction.

Postcode: SA38 9JP

Distance: 2km (1 ¼ miles)

Time: An easy going 45 - 60 Minutes

Points to note:

Beautiful Waterfalls

Dog-friendly gift shop and cafe.

Attractive 18th Century road bridge.

2 Pubs & a Tearoom.

Reasons to visit again - the Coracle Museum and to see the Salmon leaping upstream in autumn as they return home to breed. The new walkway will be soon finished to enable better accessibility and wheelchair access to the entire circular walk. Dog loved it!
