Alongside the river still stands Cenarth's 17th century flour mill, which retains its cast iron and timber wheel. Once powered by the falls, the mill has long since been used to grind grain and now houses a collection of antiquities on display to the public.

In the grounds of the mill is located the National Coracle Centre. Coracle fishing is an intrinsic part of Cenarth's culture and long history. The coracle, an ancient form of water transport, is a small and shallow boat with a basketwork frame, propelled by the use of a paddle. These boats are still used on the River Teifi today. An effective form of coracle fishing is for two coracles to trap fish, such as salmon and sea trout (sewin), by use of a net stretched between them.

Coracle rides, available to visitors during the summer months, prove to be very popular.

Extending across the river is Cenarth's
200-year-old bridge distinguishable by its cylindrical holes.
