Located in the village of Cockington, Granary Cottage is a first floor holiday apartment located above one of the prettiest thatched gift shops in the village. Situated close to a pretty tea room, the property has been decorated and furnished to a very good standard. Only ¾ miles from Torquay’s seafront and 3 miles from the town centre, this is a perfect spot to take a holiday. Whether you like walking, birdwatching or taking a perfect lazy holiday, Cockington has it all. A real picture-postcard village, Cockington has hardly changed over hundreds of years. There is evidence of Iron Age and Saxon settlements near the local pub, and the village is mentioned in the Domesday Book. This thatched village is the perfect setting for a walk, no matter what time of year it is. It has an historic forge, a court and church, tea rooms, thatched pub and, of course, the lakes and woods. The village sits somewhat incongruously, right in the heart of urban Torbay, but stubbornly refuses to be tainted by modern developments. The village is one of the most photographed places in the country, and the surrounding country park and woodland makes it an ideal destination for walking.
The pride of the village is Cockington Court, originally owned by the Cary family from 1375 to 1654. It is now home to Cockington Chocolate Company with their sweets, truffles and gifts, and a fabulous contemporary arts and crafts hub, showcasing creative arts from, amongst others, glassmakers, a blacksmith and conceptual artists. With beautiful gardens and a fabulous tea room, its a great place to spend the day, with plenty to see and do for the whole family. Cockington Court also has a connection to the English Riviera’s most famous daughter, Agatha Christie. In her youth, she often visited the village, and her novel ’Why Didn’t They Ask Evans?’ is dedicated to her friend Christopher Mallock. The Mallocks regularly staged amateur theatricals at Cockington Court and, despite her terrible shyness, Agatha Christie regularly took part. Think afternoon tea, cricket on the green and the gentle pace of village life you would find in an Agatha Christie Miss Marple novel (without the murders of course!), and you have the rural idyll that is Cockington. If you want to truly experience traditional, English country life, come to Cockington on the English Riviera, South Devon’s beautiful bay.
Brixham and Paignton are also close by. Take a trip on a steam train from Paignton to Dartmouth, enjoy the theatre at Torquay or take a ferry over to Brixham for the day. There are also many National Trust properties nearby. Beach ¾ miles. Shop 1¼ miles, pub and restaurant 500 yards.

    Beautiful and homely cottage in a wonderful location containing everything needed for our stay. Only criticism and this is being very picky is the size of the shower. Ruby our dog had a great time enjoying the country park. Cocklington is an oasis nestling between two large towns but perfectly placed for visiting south Devon. Well done to Olwyn and Trevor for making Granary Cottage so welcoming and a great place to stay, we will be back.

    Good location. This property has steps to door as per photograph,but also has steps down to small cold kitchen which perhaps should be made more obvious if some potential bookers are not so mobile. The Drum is handy as is Cockington Country park with nice walks and several small businesses and cafe. Parking up hill, whilst covered by the owners, would again be an obstacle for less mobile visitors especially when there is another car park on level closer.. The negatives are on mobility problems, the positives would outweigh those with location, scenic beauty, decent weather and meeting nice people wherever we went. Also good area for dogs.

    The cottage is in a great location in the middle of the village. Nearby is The Drum Pub, couple of minutes walk, for food and drink the bonus is they allow dogs there. Excellent location for walking dogs with woods nearby and plenty of other walks. Easy walk to the seafront at Meadfoot with a choice of using bus service to Torquay or Paignton or easy flat walking to them Would recommend and also use again.

    A beautiful cottage in a very peaceful and lovely location with the hustle of Torquay a short walk away if you wanted a change. Warm, cosy and very homely. Very welcoming pub nearby with a good selection of quality food. The owners were very friendly and helpful. We would thoroughly recommend the cottage for a great holiday .Excellent value for money.

    Second time we have stayed here and what’s not to like. Cockington is a lovely village, plenty of local walks and the cottage is in the heart of the village.Torquay is not to far to walk to and the local pub is dog friendly.

    A very comfortable and unusual cottage in a stunning location, dog friendly with great dog walking area around, and a very good dog friendly pub on the doorstep. Weather unsettled while we were there but it didn,t stop us getting out and about sight seeing, lots to see and do.

    We were not fit enough to be comfortable at Granary Cottage.The steps and stairs made it difficult for us particularly on arrival and on leaving.Generally the cottage could do with some updates in furnishings.It would benefit from and intense clean as so many dogs stay. The village is stunning and very convenient for walking and visiting local towns.We were met and welcomed on arrival by very very pleasant hosts.

    This was our third visit to Granary Cottage - and won't be our last. We just love the cottage and Cockington. The cottage is comfortable and has everything you need to let you escape the rat race and recharge your batteries. Fabulous walks within the grounds. Beautiful surroundings. Peace and quiet. Who could ask for more? Can you tell we enjoyed our stay and will be back for more?
