Well worth a visit. Lots of walking space and some lovely lakes. We ate at The Drum which was first class - had to book though.

Lovely place to visit

Lovely little village you can walk to from Torquay. A couple of shops, but there is nothing else there really. I think I remember it being very busy with a lot of shops, but maybe we just didn't find them this time.

Each seasonal visit has its own charm. Especially the blossoms of the Camellia is a highlight in the spring.

Pleasant walk

The country park is right in the centre of the village of Cockington, where you’ll find a large car park. The park is large and well planted with trees. Popular with dog walkers. There’s a lake, groundskeepers house, pub and craft buildings. Free to enter and worth a visit while visiting the village.
