About Us

Many villages lay claim to being ‘picturesque’, but the village of Cockington is the real deal. Take a walk back in time along Cockington’s narrow lanes, lined with thatched houses with their colour washed walls of stone and cobb, You’ll experience a quiet charm that is a quintessentially English with its manor house, cricket ground, thatched pub, cream teas and a place to stay.

Everything about Cockington oozes history with many of the cottages dating back to the 16th Century and some, like the old Forge, mentioned in the Doomsday Book.

At the heart of the now internationally famous village you will find plenty of parking but it’s only a short walk from the seafront at Livermead or there’s a number 62 bus service from Torquay harbour.

Once there you will be free to discover this charming village and surrounding Country Park with its hundreds of acres of gorgeous trails and rural vistas perhaps taking lunch at the Lutyens designed pub or a cream tea at a choice of Tea Gardens. There are numerous leisurely strolls around the village taking in the shops selling gifts and mementoes of your visit. You can discover the old stocks, an abandoned water mill, the Alms Houses for the former estate, mediaeval carp lakes, water meadows and an ancient gamekeeper’s cottage nestling in the woods. Walk a little further and you come across the Manor House, Cockington Court, a hub for contemporary creative crafts and arts.
