    We are a unique family run Cafe / Shop set at the heart of Crackington haven. Crackington Haven is an historical Cornish cove sandwiched amongst the dramatic coastline of North Cornwall. It’s picturesque parish with loads to offer, comprising of small lanes winding through acres of un spoilt countryside, farmed cliff tops, small hamlets, ancient forests and of course the beautiful beach with the spectacular North Coast Surf. So whether you are a hiker, biker, surfer, sand castle builder you’re craving for a cream tea or you just want to admire the spectacular views from our forecourt and have a gossip we will be here entertaining everyday throughout the year.

  2. Nestled in the picturesque hamlet of Crackington Haven overlooking the beach makes us the ideal watering hole for hikers walking the coastal path, families enjoying the beach or visitors taking break away from the hustle and bustle.
