Cenarth should be a beautiful quaint village but sadly things have gone badly awry. The sole reason for Cenarth is the river and waterfall, but simply stand on the bridge, treating the relentless traffic with care, and you will see what has gone wrong. Looking down river in the middle distance is a large and hideous wall, albeit probably to protect the house on the bank from the river in flood. Surely, with a little thought, something a little less industrial could have been designed.
Now turn and face up river. The whole foreground is dominated by the large, stone chipped car park. Come on! If this is a beauty spot why the hell was it necessary to completely dominate the scene with this huge monstrosity of a gravel mess which covers up the left hand side of the river bed and is an absolute disgrace.
So, facilities. When we were there the Post Office cum general store was up for sale and it appeared that the White Hart pub was as well. Adequate, actually the woman in the store was quite pleasant if refusing to help me post a letter as the Post Office was shut for reckoning up.
Attractions? Well there is the Water Mill and National Coracle Centre which are the subject of a separate review but in a nutshell, tired!
Cenarth is often described as a "tourist magnet". I must be a different polarity to most because it repelled me!
