Check back here regularly to find out what's going on in Mineshop, Crackington Haven and the North Cornwall area...
Summer is on its way... the hedgerows, paths and coastline are full of colour, the bluebells are beginning to come out, the wild garlic is very pungent along the paths and our bees are busy making honey.
The ducks and chickens are beginning to get broody so we are hoping to see some ducklings and chicks wondering around the grounds very soon.
We have some lovely weather after the winter wet weather that we have all had. There have been some amazing sunsets that even us locals never get fed up of seeing them!
The Coombe Barton Inn at Crackington Haven is under new ownership, the food and atmosphere is exceptional, it's so nice to have a good Pub with good Beers and Food within easy walking distance, overlooking the sea.
