Thatched village with a taste of a bygone time be careful roads are narrow and passing difficult at times. Parking is also an issue

Plenty of tea rooms to choose from to enjoy a Devonshire cream tea. Be prepared to walk to enjoy everything the village has to offer.

We visited Cockington village and Manor on a slightly rainy Sunday morning and it was still a very nice place to see. I had imagined it a bit bigger though. The thatched cottages looked nice and the Manor House had a lovely tea room inside. The grounds are beautiful even in the rain. I imagine it to be a very pleasant walk in the sun.

Step back in time in this beautiful village. So much history and a beautiful country park that offers peace and tranquility. We had lunch at rose cottage which has a beautiful garden setting and live piano playing, it was so relaxing and we thoroughly enjoyed our visit also the most fragrant rose garden would definitely recommend a visit if you are in north Devon.
