Description: Just a mile from Torquay seafront, historic Cockington Court is nestled...
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!

I bought my parents here to have a look around the grounds that my partner and myself have chosen for our wedding ceremony as they live in Bristol. My parents were blown away with how beautiful and well kept it was. We had a drink at the cafe which is very reasonably priced. We looked around the little shops which... More

At this time of year most of the units are closed up so there's not much to see, although the chocolate company & the tea rooms were open

If you want to relax, take a trip back in time. Driving into Cockington you will see beautiful old black and white cottages, some turned into shops, blacksmiths, cafe, there's even a cafe in beautiful gardens, with a piano player in the good weather. Cockington court, in its own beautiful grounds. Art and crafts buildings, glass blower, jewellers to name... More

Country afternoon venue. Welcomed dogs. Warm and welcoming. Good menu for soup or something a bit more substantial.

The place looks a little gloomy but WOW the home-made cakes looked and tasted fantastic. We were allowed to take our dogs inside which was a bonus as it had started to rain. We will definitely be back for another slice of "Kathy's" lovely cake.
