Cockington Country Park: Come and explore this special village, its historic manor house and the 460 acres of parkland, woodland and farmland around. From Scadson Woods, or from the seafront at Livermead, or even from the Ring Road, you can walk into Cockington and explore its 10 km long network of country footpaths and horse-riding routes. It's a landscape full of surprises and views over Torbay, with wildlife and history to match.
