Description

This apartment is situated in the picturesque village of Cockington, also home to Cockington Court which showcases creative arts.

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.

    I have just had a wonderfully relaxing comfortable week at Granary cottage. The village of Cockington is chocolate box perfect but can be very busy with tourists and as the cottage is over a shop it can be a little noisy during working hours, but other than that I cannot fault the cottage. There are plenty of beautiful walks in the surrounding countryside and the local pub (The Drum 3 minuets walk away) does a wonderful Sunday roast and overall its a lovely friendly place. There is a fantastic craft centre which includes a glass blower, a black smith and a chocolate shop making their own chocolates on the premises which smells heavenly and tastes better.

    Lovely cottage in a fantastic area, everybody extremely friendly. Very kind to dogs in the tea rooms, and cafe dog biscuits given on every visit, lovely touch. Cottage very clean and tidy with lovely fresh flowers in a couple of rooms. Could not recommend this cottage and village more highly, well worth a visit.

    The owners were friendly and welcoming. The cottage was presented in a delightful homely way with lovely touches such as fresh flowers, lavender sachets on the towels, doggy treats and everything needed to make a hot drink. It was exceptionally clean and smelt fresh, a welcome change as sometimes properties that permit dogs can smell a little stale. The location is amazing, at the centre of a picturesque village on the tourist trail yet never noisy or intrusive. The local country park (just a few minutes away) was just the cherry on the cake, our dogs enjoyed up to 3 walks a day. Everyone we met was friendly and welcoming. The comments in the visitor book reflect our opinions. Would we go again - already booked it for next year!

    The cottage is very cosy en well looked after by the owners. Everything you need is there. It is situated in a beautiful little village. During the day there are many toerists but after 4 pm it is so peaceful. Pub and 3 tearooms are very nearby. A 20 minutes beatiful walk to the seafront of Torquay. The only tip we have: the bed is only 1.40 x 1.90 cm which is very small for people over 1.96 cm tall.
