Just a mile from Torquay's seafront is the historic thatched village of Cockington, where delightful tearooms and gift shops may tempt you.
Above the village, Cockington Court, with its nearby church, is set in attractive and natural parkland and is an idyllic place to while away a few hours. Reached from the village, either by your own efforts or by a horse and carriage ride, you will be astounded at the beauty around you and you may be lucky and hear the organ being played in the church.
Whether you prefer to stay in the open air and enjoy the peace and tranquillity of the park or visit the craft centre housed in the Manor House, to view, and perhaps buy, some of the traditional work being carried out here, you are sure to leave with recharged batteries.
