Situated about a mile from Torquay sea front is the delightful village of Cockington.
It's a place where thatch is the order of the day
not to mention the clip clop of the horse and cart.
(Although...someone does need spelling lessons!!)
We had a very pleasant lunch at ' The Drum', which was almost deserted!
The rose garden was past its best but there were still one or two snippets of beauty.
The trees here are beautiful too.
It's Torbay's little 'jewel' and well worth a visit.
