With pals, I walked from Torquay to the tiny village of Cockington and onto the Country Park. It's a lovely area for walking and the arty crafty shops are very interesting to visit. Suitable for singles, couples or families to visit. Highly recommend!

Cockington is a large and very beautiful garden, the best in Torbay, with a number of interesting craft shops and studios attached.
Avoid the cafe, however, dogs roam unchecked and bark and even sit up at table. Torbay Council considers this quite normal.

Wonderful open parkland in the village of Cockington. You pay for parking but there is no entry charge. Craft workshops are open all year, do not forget the glass blowing
