I have visited Cockington a number of times over the years. It never fails to impress. Wonderful grounds that are great for "little explorers" too. A few "crafty" themed shops though could do with "something" else in the top part of the court (modern area). Great coffee shop however a little pricey if you are a family wanting a quick... More

Spent a few hours strolling around the beautiful Cockington Court and its extensive gardens. The game keepers cottage is worth a visit! So cute! Beautiful location. We really enjoyed watching the very talented crafts people at work, they were happy to answer questions about their particular craft. Something for all. We did think the horse and trap ride into the... More

Started at a lovely tea shop in the village which was superb. Then it all went terribly wrong. Rose garden where most of the bushes looked diseased and a craft village (?) where half the shops were closed. Although it was half past 2 the glass blower was at lunch and the blacksmith sat on a bench with no interest... More

Lots of room to run around and roll down the hill. Interesting crafts, great tea room and lovely little village. The forge is very interesting, great for presents and souvenirs.

We visited twice first on the traditional fete day and then a few days later. This is a wonderful open space people were picnicking teaching children to ride bikes and playing games on our second visit. The cricket pitch is a sight to behold as the wicket seems to be the only flat area and the remains of the pitch... More

I absolutely loved this place. The studios are varied and offer great quality and value for money. I bought a piece of original art work for £20 and a beautifully hand crafted wooden car as a gift. The tea shop / cafe is great - I would highly recommend the afternoon tea, it was amazing. A beautiful place to spend... More
