Just a mile from Torquay seafront, historic Cockington Court is nestled within 460 acres of parkland. The Court has recently undergone a £2.85Million restoration and build programme to add to the existing craft studios. The craft centre is home to a growing number of artists and craftsmen - admire their skills as you watch them work in their studios and galleries. There is also an exhibition space and a resource room, both of which run regular displays and workshops with a programme to suit all ages. Don't miss the ornamental lakes, woodland and play park, ride a horse drawn carriage around the estate and top it off with a well-earned rest in the Tea Rooms. With a busy events calendar, Cockington Court is perfect for all the family!

This place was recommended to us by our B&B owners in Torquay and we are so glad we visited. Wandering through the village it felt like you were in another world. Although there were quite a few visitors, it felt quiet and tranquil walking around the court and village. We stopped at an outdoor cafe for a drink, the scenery... More

Living locally, this is an easy place for us to visit and, apart from the cost of parking, a great free local attraction. If you park in the pretty thatched village and walk through the pleasant grounds it is a lovely walk either through the woods or the big open grassy grounds in front of the main house which on...

We were recommended to visit Cockington Village and Court by friends - one if the most beautiful places on earth, especially in a lovely sunny day. Entry to Cockington Court is free, but you do need to use the p&d car park.

I bought my parents here to have a look around the grounds that my partner and myself have chosen for our wedding ceremony as they live in Bristol. My parents were blown away with how beautiful and well kept it was. We had a drink at the cafe which is very reasonably priced. We looked around the little shops which... More

At this time of year most of the units are closed up so there's not much to see, although the chocolate company & the tea rooms were open
