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.

On 17 September this year twenty members of our families celebrated our son and his fiancee's wedding within Cockington Country Park. This is an outstanding fairy-tale venue for a wedding and with the beautiful sunshine we enjoyed on that day, made it a memory we will never forget. This is a typical chocolate box village/community representing bygone days which many... More

Beautiful place, even in November. Walked to it from our hotel and despite getting a little disorientated, thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The Arboretum has beautiful specimen trees, and the refreshment areas were great (and dog-friendly!) Special mention should be made of the grounds - if you have a dog, you must try and visit - they will believe they have died... More

After a walk around very muddy messy "duck ponds" we went to the Court for coffee. We appreciate work was taking place on the lakes but it looked very unorganised. In the tearoom the staff both had very grubby fleece jackets on and two of our group were served cold coffee. To compound our dissatisfaction the two minutes silence (... More

This was my first visit to Cockington and as It was November the Autumnal colours of the various trees were phenomenal, we couldnt stop taking pictures. Lovely park on a crisp dry day, plenty of dog walkers around which is always good to see. Lots of benches to sit on all around. Thatched picture postcard cottages in abundance It was... More

Have visited many times and try to go out of the main tourist season. Car parking is easy but would recommend walking from the seafront, along the pathway by the stream, through the village and into the park itself. Beautiful open parkland and the autumn colour in the arboretum was stunning on this visit. During the main season the shops... More

We visited Cockington village with our daughter as I have enjoyed many visits there years ago when I was young. We are a 'horsey' family but were disappointed that there are no horse and carriage rides now (on a regular basis) and the old forge where we used to pin notes with wishes on the beams has now been stripped...
