Owner description: Cockington Country Park surrounds the picture postcard Cockington Village which lies just off the seafront near Torquay. The Country Park is free to walk around and features beautiful formal gardens, lakes and woodlands which can be enjoyed via a network of paths. Cockington Court and Cafe are nearby, along with a collection of craft studios where you can browse the creations of local artists and crafts people. The Cockington Country Park is cared for by local charity the Torbay Coast and Countryside Trust, who's volunteers operate a Visitor Centre in the village. Car parking is chargeable, although Trust members can park for free in the Trust's car park. Visit our website for more details.

You need to be able to walk a fair way if you visit Cockington. We visited in February and the toilets on the car park were closed and we had to troop through the pub to use theirs. Not good for kids or the elderly and was embarrasing.

The park is great, but don't forget to also visit the lakes, with the unique red colour (because of the red soil).
The village itself is very beautiful and picturesque, and only 3 minutes walk from the park. Worths a visit for a traditional cream tea!

Lovely place to spend the day for all ages.

Lots of places to get some really good photos.

Been a few times and the parking is quite expensive but if you take a picnic, which is highly advised in the summer it still works out a cheap day out!

There is also cricket on in the summer for those who enjoy it.

This village is absolutely beautiful. It seems a peaceful little countryside village that is in the middle of nowhere, even though Torquay is right there. The only reason I'm scoring it a four instead of five is because we went in the winter and almost all of it was closed except the Court and Craft Studios. Otherwise, flawless and worth a visit.
