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.

Nice little place with unique shops you won't find anywhere else, disappointing that they no longer have the horse a cart rides but still good.

A typical old England experience for the tourist. Ancient thatched buildings clustered around a crossroad with pleasant woodlands surrounding the area. One of our party had visited Cockington several decades before and told us that there had been a working forge there - but now the building was employed as a shop selling craft goods. Some said there was a... More

The woodland walks and the artisan crafts were all very interesting and beautiful especially the blown glass. Unfortunately not everything was open in the village

What a gem of a village, more Thatched Cottages than in some parts of the Cotswolds. The craft centre was excellent, will certainly visit again.

There wasn't nearly as much going on here as we expected, perhaps because it was the end of April. Many of the craft places were either unoccupied or closed. The glass blowing place was amazing though and many visitors were congregated there, watching items being made. The pieces were very fairly priced and several purchases were made while we were...
