Places in Jane Shaw: Crackington Haven
Pendragon Haven in Cornwall is the setting for The Moochers stories. Like many other places in Jane Shaw, it is a thinly disguised version of a real location: Crackington Haven. The Evans family spent several holidays there and the author used this area of Cornwall as the setting for The Moochers stories, Family Trouble and (as Jean Bell) The Penhallow Mystery. Pendragon Manor is based on Crackington Manor, which is now a guest house.
