Neighbourhood
“Cockington is a beautiful village close to Torquay in the heart of South Devon’s stunning English Riviera – it’s a delight to visit all year round. Take a walk back in time along Cockington’s narrow lanes, lined with thatched houses and you’ll experience a quiet charm that is quintessentially English. Everything about Cockington oozes with history – there’s a water mill, a forge and even the cricket pitch was once a medieval deer park. ”
