Unwind in the English Riviera
The English Riviera is one of the nation’s most popular holiday destinations; a 22-mile stretch of beautiful Devon coastline, dotted with rocky coves, friendly seaside resorts, pretty towns and villages and of course, tranquil views of the ocean. You’re sure to love strolling along its vibrant promenades and blue-flag beaches, delving into the area’s rich maritime history, attending one of its many popular attractions and events, or simply unwinding in a homely pub or restaurant on the seafront.
Cockington Country Park
Sprawling over more than 400 acres, Cockington Country Park is a must-see for anyone coming to the English Riviera looking for an escape from urban life. The park is a tranquil, protected green space, just a mile in from the seafront. Peaceful, meandering trails carve through the woods, meadows and parklands which surround an impressive manor house dating back to the 1600s, with its own craft studio and walled garden.
