Our lovely walk begins near an organic farm and leads us through a mixture of country and woodland. As we follow the quiet tracks through woods and peaceful lanes, there will be ample opportunity to become 'lost' in the scenic beauty of the changing countryside.

Once we reach the picturesque village of Cockington, with its thatched cottages and horse-drawn carriages, we can explore the giftshops, cafe and tea gardens, where there is live music from the resident pianist.

Moving on to the grounds of the historic Cockington Hall, there is a host of things to explore from the variety of trees and shrubs that adorn the natural beauty of the grounds, to a children's play area. You may like to take a meal at the restaurant, or browse in the many delightful craft shops and studios before exploring the organic, walled kitchen-garden.

Continuing on our walk once more, the track now leads us through farmland and out onto country lanes again to return to the car park, refreshed and eager to visit again another time.

I live very near to this walk and, sadly, the tea garden and resident pianist mentioned in the description have closed down permanently.

Did this walk 23/07/20. Very good and enjoyable, specially walk around Cockington. A couple of points. Best to now start at Cockington Village. Occombe Farm is closed until end Sept, but parking will be limited to 90 minutes. At Point 16,there is no 'Curve left'. Just carry on up the lane until you see the gate and go through it. Point 18. The gate in the field is permanently locked, but is fairly easy to get over. The reason is somebody left it open and the farmers cattle shot everywhere. Point 19. After the wooden Gate, there is no other. Just follow the yellow waymark and it will take you to the road. Mary & Tony

We enjoyed the walk but there are a number of areas which need editing and new photographs submitted. Also it is always better to take photos facing the right way. At the end of the walk the footpath across the fields is not way marked but fortunately the map gave us confidence to open a gate into the second field.
