Many villages lay claim to being 'picturesque', but the village of Cockington is the real deal. Thatched cottages, pretty gardens, tea rooms and the beautiful Cockington Court in the heart of the village.

This is a quintessential English chocolate box village. It’s a nice place to just wander round and look at the thatched cottages. However it is busy even in off season. Lots of cars however all seemingly in rush, why ?

We visited here and walked around the village, most of the houses are tourist shops or tea houses, not much of interest really. The church was lovely though

An ideal place for walking your dog, there's a church and house which is very interesting. There is also a arts centre with horses in a paddock. The seafront is only 20m walk away with some lovely gardens..

Not as far as we know, but there is a single decker bus disguised as a little train, which goes through the streets from the beach,past Torre Abbey. Cannot say exact route but you will be able to ask in Torquay.
