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!

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.

This is a great little park where you can just walk in peace no noise very popular with dog walkers. It's larger than I expected and a bit far to walk although we did. The house looked beautiful and there is also a little café.

Cockington court is a must visit- especially if you like arts and crafts and gardens. Set within the lovely Cockington park - beyond the charming Cockington village- The hall houses a café, with indoor and outside seating, and probably has the best scones I've tasted so far in Devon. Go and see the Glass blowers in action- amazing and you... More

Worth a visit but not a detour. The village was chocolate box perfect but the Christmas craft and food fayre was only ok, not special. The resident craft makers were good but not particularly diverse. The park is extensive and there are some lovely walks with a good tea room to look forward to at the end. The covered ice... More
