Owner description: 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!

Cockington court is a must visit- especially if you like arts and crafts and gardens. Set within the lovely Cockington park - beyond the charming Cockington village- The hall houses a café, with indoor and outside seating, and probably has the best scones I've tasted so far in Devon. Go and see the Glass blowers in action- amazing and you... More

Worth a visit but not a detour. The village was chocolate box perfect but the Christmas craft and food fayre was only ok, not special. The resident craft makers were good but not particularly diverse. The park is extensive and there are some lovely walks with a good tea room to look forward to at the end. The covered ice... More

Set in a beautiful country park just a short distance from Torquay sea front. The tea room is excellent - very friendly staff. Popular with locals and holidaymakers. Dogs are also allowed in.

Cockington is perfect all year round for a day out, I personally love it at Christmas time the most because it's beautifully decorated. However, I visited a few times in the summer too and there's lots to do. We sat out on the green for hours, looked around the shops and had a drink in the lovely cafe. Car park... More

Met here for a reunion, excellent choice, interesting, great grounds, decent retail at sensible prices and generally a good place to visit, we were restricted due to time constraints but we will be back as a family to spend the whole day.
