We stopped at the Court area when we came to the park. There are a couple of Art shops/areas in the court - amazing stuff. We also stopped at the cafe in the court. I ordered a cream tea, two scones, cream and jam and a pot of tea for one for about £5.50. The scones were amazing, warm, crumbly... More

Despite a 16 year break of being able to come to Cockington, the cream teas did not disappoint. The scones and tea were amazing as usual

This was a wonderful no cost ( other than the Jewelery I just had to buy) way to spend a couple of hours. We enjoyed the gardens and artesian areas. Nice walk to Cockington for a cream tea. Good walking trails.

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
