What a beautiful quaint village. Lovely sights and real British feeling. Unfortunately we had rain but I would love to go back when we have better weather.

After parking the car we walked to the craft workshops where there were lots to see , people with many skills (fascinating). With many paths to wonder on we saw a lot of the grounds, church and picturesque cottages. We enjoyed our coffee.

Lovely little village just in land from Torquay beach front. Spent an afternoon as perfect for a stroll and to have a cream tea. Gentleman played piano in tea rooms which gave it an olde world charm.

Lovely open area where dogs can go off lead, situated by the Manor House. Had a cup of tea in the Manor House. There were delicious looking cream teas. All reasonably priced. There was a gift shop and art gallery within the house.
There were craftsmen including glass blowers, where vases, pill boxes and paperweights could be purchased at reasonable prices. A blacksmith was creating garden ornaments and gifts. Woodworker displaying wares such as toys, shelving and homewares. Slate worker who made plaques and unusual household products. I believe there may be additional craft workers later in the year.
Cockington is a quaint old English village. Full of thatched cottages, tea shops and a gift shop.

Lovely place to spend a couple of hours mooching about, tea rooms, craft shop amazing old chapel (1069) walk in the grounds. There is even a pretty walk along the stream down to the sea front.
