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!

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.

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.

A must visit. Been visiting this place for years, the grounds are lovely, great for walking and a picnic in the summer. New additions and craft shops add to the interest, as does the resident glass blower Would be great to some development of the organic garden.

We went here for something to do and so pleased we did. The place was lovely lots of different little craft hideouts and great surroundings, give it a try if you get a spare couple of hours. Well worth a visit.
