Cockington Country Park - Review

Just a mile away from the Torquay seafront there is the beautiful thatched village of Cockington which was initially a fishing and farming village, and in the heart of it is a big park known as the Cockington Country Park. This was founded in 1991 for the purpose of regeneration of Torquay’s most valued resources. It comprises of a manor house and a church set in formal parkland and an eye-catching valley with mixed woodland, pastures and wetland and even horse rides.

A tourist attraction from the early Victorian ages, now invites 350000 every year. The whole of this village park is a conservation area because of its historic value. The estate is mentioned in the Doomsday Book and was owned by three different renowned families till it was made a Cockington conservation property. Keeping in mind the steadily declining condition of this beautiful place, the design of the thatched village was put to use. As a result the picture has changed from rotten timbers and collapsing buildings to well-converted housings. The renovation work is still on to bring the park at its best state and now it is covered with runs of green to soothe your mind and eyes.

The park features-

  • Beautiful formal gardens with lush green grass and rare plants.
  • Lakes and woodlands on both sides which can be enjoyed by walking along picturesque pathways from where the surrounding valley can be seen all around.
  • A visitor’s centre set up by local workmen where you can find artists and craftsmen at work.
  • A newly renovated craft center with glass-blowers, chocolatier and a blacksmith.
  • The game keeper’s cottage where there are sports arrangements for visitors.
  • Mascombe woods which is an unimproved chalked grassland.
  • Other Information: The Agatha Christie mile where she performed amateur dramatics during her childhood days is a very popular attraction. It will surely give you an essence of the Jazz age.
