48 photos of Cockington, English Riviera
Cockington is a picturesque village with thatched cottages on the outskirts of Torquay. There are gift shops, restaurants and a visitor centre. Above the village is a country park with extensive grounds, woodland, trails, manor house, rose garden and small lakes. Cockington is about 24 miles from Exeter. From Exeter take the A38 and A380 to Torquay. To avoid driving into Torquay, continue on the A380 around the outskirts of Torquay to the Preston Down roundabout and here turn left signposted to Preston Sea Front. On this road turn left where signposted to Farm Shop. Do not enter the Farm Shop but continue on the lane which is called Cockington Road. Note the lane is quite narrow. Continue on the lane to Cockington and on reaching Cockington there is a small car park on the left but a much larger car park in the village centre.
