You can observe old style craftsmen working near these lovely gardens. There is a charming, and very old church on the property. Nice place to visit.

“Like stepping back in time...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 8, 2012

Cockington is a beautiful little place to visit. It's like stepping back in time and is a lovely escape from the hustle and bustle. The craft shops are full of amazing creations and you could spend a fortune. Make sure you stop off for a cream tea at the cafe with the terraced garden. The pianist playing in the garden and the horse and carriage trotting by, whilst enjoying an amazing scone and clotted cream, makes you feel a million miles away from normal life. Enjoy!

“lovely walk”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 8, 2012

A beautiful place to walk around particularly at the change of season the trees were at their best in colour. Plenty to see and places for children and families to picnic and run about.
