We walked to Cockington from Torquay, there is a pathway that follows a stream so you do not have to walk on the road without a path.
It is a picture postcard setting with lots of thatched cottages
Rose cottage serves everything you could want to eat,but the cream teas are excellent
and the pianist plays a variety of well known tunes,that creates a nice atmosphere
there is also a 14th century church and arts and craft shops as well as a nice pub
a great place to spend a sunny day
