The 450 acres of parkland is a surprising oasis of calm away from the bustle of Torbay. Take time to stroll around and enjoy the variety of scenery and wildlife that exists at Cockington. Whether you want to picnic and watch the cricket in front of the court, visit the walled Rose Garden, glimpse wildlife on secluded woodland walks through the lakes or learn something new in the organic kitchen garden, Cockington Village can be enjoyed by everyone.
