The award winning Cockington Country Park is the green lung that separates Torquay and Paignton with 450 acres of parkland, woodland and ornamental gardens. The estate dates back to the Domesday Book and features a wealth of heritage and history to explore including the picture postcard village itself and Cockington Court Craft Studios where you can watch a range of craftsmen at work and purchase hand-crafted products direct from the maker. Within the grounds of the park you will also find a disabled-friendly children's play area, lakes, watermeadows, woodland, farmland and a network of walking and cycling paths.
