We go there to walk the dog, but it is a lovely place for everyone. Lots of variety for walkers - park, woods, streams, interesting little craft shops where they make things out of glass, metal etc, and a fab cafe in the park

Cockington Court and Country Park is one of our most favourite places! We got married at the Court Register Office on 27th October and had an amazing day! Cockington is an idyllic and beautiful setting
