Cockington ...Part two!

Making our way around the back of Cockington Court, we find this...
The Organic Garden.

An old fashioned garden...walled of course!
There's nothing like a walled garden!

And every now and again there are notice boards with useful information.

A lovely meadow area.

We left the organic garden and we arrived at the craft workshops.

Mr S took a fancy to these metal birds, which came flying home with us and now wend their way around our Heather bed!

This sign above said something about a parking space for a mother in law!

A lovely courtyard with plenty to observe.

Eventually, it was a lovely walk back along the valley, to the village.

More tea anyone?

A glorious morning was had by all, I can tell you!

And we went there this morning, Sal! How lucky we are to have this adorable village and park on our doorstep.

Thank you for posting more beautiful photographs, I love so many of them but especially the wild meadow flowers. This is going on my list of places to go to again as I haven't visited since I was a child and I'm an OAP now.! xx

Just how fantastic is that place?????? Chipping Sodbury will be a bit of a let down in comparison ;O)

The local tourist board ought to pay you a large fee Sal!

Hello Sal,
we went to Cockington when we spent holidays in Devon few years ago:-)) I remember it well, it's a beautiful little village (hamlet).
What fabulous weather ! We have the same in Britanny. Have a nice week !

Lovely pics Sal, you inspired me both to visit and to post about the rose garden near our house, so thank you, this could have been a dull weekend otherwise!
