Cockington village is a popular day out for Torbay visitors, but is also a treasured local heritage gem and working residential village.
It is one of the most densely thatched villages in England. As well as its centre piece, the Grade II* listed Cockington Court, the village comprises a working forge, waterwheel, and medieval church. The stunning water meadows with a pathway connect Cockington to the seafront, and there are plenty of green spaces and walking routes.
The village also features a range of shops, cafes, a Lutyens-designed pub and places to stay.
