Peace and quiet, well worth to visit for a cup of tee and family/friends walk. Big car park for a very reasonable price ( take coins :) ) Nice shops for some small memory items for everyone.

Thank Familiada

Came here yesterday. Paid three hours on the car parking but only needed about an hour. Muddy walk across the field. Advise to take the path!!! We didn't see it until it was to late! Opps! Had a little wonder around the craft shops. Shame the horse and carriages were not running? Not sure why and no signs to explain this? Some of the shops quite expensive.

I enjoyed our visit to Cockington although the teens were a little bored. Beautiful thatched cottages, blacksmiths shops set in an idyllic country setting. There are also workshops that shows you Glass blowing and ironmongery very interesting to watch. The park itself is also beautiful and great for a picnic. If you are in the area then visit Cockington.

A colourful little village. In the middle of Torquay, rose gardens, water mill paths, woodland walks, horse and cart rides and horse riding can all be found in this one picturesque location...

Great for young and old including your 4 legged friend.

We spent a couple of hours wandering about the grounds (very wet underfoot) took in the lakes, water garden walk down to the sea front and the main house.

Cream tea in the village - very nice.

Parking is £1 per hour

Toilets in car park closed which is rather inconvenient.
