"Cockington Village on the English Riviera in Devon"
The medieval village of Cockington appears to have changed little over the centuries.The village is located right in the heart of urban Torbay, but it stubbornly refuses to be tainted by modern developments.
The thatched village is one of the most photographed places in the country and the surrounding country park and woodland makes it an ideal destination to visit while holidaying in Torbay. Cockington Forge its self dates back to the 14th century, here even the public toilets are thatched!
