“A little piece of heaven”

Loved the village,it was a beautiful place, went by local bus which was not a good experience, we were very cramped on a very small bus and they were never on time.

“Interesting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2013

We visited Cockington court for the main part and only drove through the village but the court itself was interesting. Some of the shops were shut... we were there about 4.15 and some shut at 4. others had limited opening hours so weren't open the day we were there. We had a meal in the cafe in the court and enjoyed strolling about the house and the grounds
