This is truly like stepping back in time. The adjacent village has almost not been touch for many years and the cottages are beautiful. There is horse drawn buggy service from the local town to the village which seemed very popular. Well worth a visit.

A short drive or stroll through water meadows from Torquay is this rural idyll, complete with quintessentially English Hall ( Cockington Court ), cricket field and pavilion, thatched cottages and old pub. Craft workshops abound together with a quirky organic walled kitchen garden. There are other very similar places around the country which do it in a little more grand... More

We have been to Cockington a number of times, but we loved it so much that we got married there last year! We returned this year on our anniversary. The setting is perfect with the beautiful thatched cottages in the background and where you get married in the Manor House is idyllic. As you come out if the Manor House... More

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

Horse and carriage ride was £15 but good value it takes you through some lovely woodland with views of the village. Rose Cottage was a great spot for photos as well with streams and ponds, also some stocks to... 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
