Two great attractions and a pub lunch – all in one day

Cenarth Falls and Cilgerran Castle

Cenarth Falls

Situated on the A484 between Cardigan and Newcastle Emlyn, Cenarth and the falls are a popular attraction with locals and tourists alike.

The falls are situated to your left as you approach the bridge over the River Teifi. Parking is not free here, but neither is it expensive. Spectacular to watch in the winter with torrents cascading over the falls, during the summer months they are much calmer but equally mesmerising.
More information on Cenarth and the falls.

The Picnic Spot

Head out of Cenarth on the B4332 towards Abercych, after the first sweeping left hand bend you will start to go uphill, keep your eyes peeled for a small track on your left heading into woodland (Sign posted Cenarth). Follow this track up the hill for a short distance and you will see the picnic spot on your left. There is parking just beyond the picnic spot.

Cilgerran Castle

Do not attempt to park near the Castle, there is a car park situated on the banks of the River Teifi, look for the ‘P’ sign whilst traveling down the High Street.

Built sometime before 1109 Cilgerran castle sits high above the River Teifi and commands a very prominent position, a daunting sight to anyone trying to pass by on the river below.

Today the Castle is managed by the National Trust and there is an entrance fee. Facilities on-site include refreshments, a gift shop and disabled toilets. Dogs are also welcome in the Castle providing they are kept on a lead.
