Fantastic accommodation in a lovely village setting, only 15 minutes walk into Torquay along a path at the side of lane from the village. Owners have thought of everything one might need for a very comfortable stay. Dog friendly pub in the village

Great quiet location in Cockington village with lots of country walks in the vicinity. The owners are experienced in holiday rentals and it shows as there are next to no improvements that we could think of. Torquay town centre is walkable if you are reasonably fit and the marina is the place to head to with lots of cafes, restaurants and small shopRead mores. Lots of National Trust properties nearby and Babbacombe, Dartmouth are well worth a visit. Hide

This is a lovely cottage and location. Paula and Leon are friendly and helpful in every way they can be without being intrusive. Flowers, scones with Devon cream and jam on arrival was a nice touch. Despite the inclement weather we did enjoy our stay and would definitely have no hesitation in recommending it to friends and family.

Lovely welcoming host, Paula greeted us on our arrival. There was a gorgeous cream tea on the kitchen table to tuck into after our journey. The weather during our week's stay was just awful - it rained heavily every day. Thank goodness for our cottage, so very cosy and had everything we could wish for. Thanks again Paula and Leon.
