Playing skittles is great fun for all the family - there's no skill required to have a go, yet there are techniques and tips you can learn to outwit the rest of your family quite quickly.

Playing skittles in Cornwall is great fun for everybody on holiday, or if you're local.

This indoor visitor attraction's perfect for days when it's not beach weather, or in the evenings when the nights are drawing in. A year-round, indoor, all weather attraction you can enjoy when you want.

Country Skittles, between Hayle and Helston is an entertaining venue for your family to spend some quality time together and relax.

Challenge each other to a game, laugh and have fun together as a family. Enjoy your time together.

Play skittles on one of four automated 9-pin bowling lanes.

Discover new talents you have with a whole raft of other great game. Lots to do whatever your age. There really is something for everyone. Whether you take your 9-pin bowling seriously, or if it's just a fabulous and fun way to spend a few hours, you can relax and enjoy the company of your friends and family. Create great memories together.

In addition to the skittles, there are over 60 different games to play, including:

Crazy Golf
Pool Tables
Table Football
Air Hockey
Video Quiz Games
Arcade Games
Giant Draughts
Traditional Wooden Games
Family Board Games

There's even a shooting gallery, where you can have fun testing your skills against your family and friends in a supervised Rifle and Pistol Shooting Range - compare targets at the end to see who really is the sharpest shot!

Challenge your family to each game. Keep scores - and maybe even award yourself prizes!

Restaurant and Bar

When you're not playing games, there's a well-stocked, licensed bar with a range of beers, including local Cornish real ales. There's also a full restaurant menu, with freshly cooked, delicious meals suiting all ages and tastes. But you don't have to have a full meal, there's:

  • 3-course meals
  • tasty light bites

  • steaks

  • Sunday roast lunches
  • Famous Grillstones - get your own pre-heated Grillstone and cook your steak just how you like it
