Crackington Haven is a perfect family resort with its safe beach offering a host of entertainment and its newly built park. Mineshop is perfectly situated for both of these.
Mineshop is located at the end of a small lane, right in the heart of an amazing valley, making it not only an extremely safe location for children to play, also an exciting one offering the opportunity to build dens, climb trees, make dams, fish for small trout and play 'poo sticks' in the stream. Or simply engage in a game of football, rounders or cricket in the fields.
Sometimes it is nice to have a family day out to entertain the children. Mineshop has a variety of venues on its doorstep that will keep everyone entertained.
