As ever,we loved our visit to Cockington,we always do,but this time when we visited the tea room,we were left rather disappointed! We ordered exactly the same as the last time we visited,as we had enjoyed it so much,perhaps that why it did not seem so good!

Cockington is a picturesque village a short bus ride (the 62 bus) from Torquay. Cockington Court is just outside the village and has a variety of craft shops and displays, including a blacksmith and a glass blower.

We thoroughly enjoyed our day here. The grounds are beautiful and there's plenty to see in the house. Lots of crafts to see and a gallery with an on sight professional painter. Well worth a visit.

Several places to eat, ranging from coffee and light snacks to a more extensive meal. Dog friendly everywhere. Not well... More

What a beautiful place to visit. Superb gardens and walks. Ideal for a gentle stroll, children to play or just to sit to watch the cricket. The flowers and foliage was stunning and we visited in February. The spring and summer gardens must be a picture.

We went to Cockington for a walk and lunch last Saturday. My grandson loved the gardens to play in. Lunch in the tea rooms was a lovely relaxing experience. Staff friendly and helpful. Charlie loved it as they paid him attention too. Will be visiting again soon . Sorry about the mess Charlie left on the floor but cheese sandwich... More
