If you are expecting a Court that you would see in London don't waste your time. If you want to see how things really are now... definitely go.

We went on a saturday afternoon, got the last horse and carriage up, was very cutsie and romantic.

Cream Tea was the best I've had in Devon! Partner had a ham and cheese toasty which he devoured... all in all the place is cute for a few hours.

Oh and lets not forget the cockington cricketers ;-)

You can make your way to the village via the coast road,there is a path that takes you direct to the village .The path is good for children/pushchairs and safe away from the main road. It runs through a shallow stream (good for photo) When you reach the village if you left under the arch it will take to ponds and gardens. You will also reach the church that dates back to the 1400. shops, horse rides. glass blowing, The Drum pub for drinks or food. with good space for children to enjoy along with the views. A good day out rain or shine.

It is like going back in time, lovely little village, went back twice in one week, it is walking distance from Belgrave Rd or you could get a bus.
