The village of Cockington is hidden in a deep valley a mile from Torquay. It can be reached by bus or car from the seafront, but why not travel back in time with a leisurely journey by horse-drawn carriage. Like a picture from a chocolate box, Cockington has all youíd expect from a traditional English village; an old forge, thatched cottages and the archetypal old manor house. In Cockington, even the public toilets are thatched! Uniquely, the village provides shops and places for visitors to stay, eat and drink while still retaining its old world charm. Walkers will enjoy strolling through the park and woodland which surrounds Cockington. Well trodden walks take in the forge at the centre of the village, Cockington Court set in 460 acres of parkland, woodland and farmland, the lakes said to have been created by monks at Torre Abbey to supply them with fresh fish, and set in the shadow of Manscombe Woods, an original Gamekeeperís Cottage, now home to an environmental educational centre. A stop off at Cockington Court for a restorative cuppa in their tea rooms and a browse around the craft centre, displays of wrought iron and blown glass are a must
