Situated in the heart of the English Riviera, the peaceful village of Cockington, lies with-in one mile of Torquay, yet this unspoilt village retains all its individuality and charm, attracting thousands of visitors each week with its thatched houses, popular village pub, quant shops and country park with cricket club.

Celebrated as one of the most photographed places in the country,Cockington is the epitome of an
English ‘chocolate box’ village, complete with horse & carriages, a babbling brook, lakes and woodland.
Nearby Torquay remains one of the U.K’s most popular holiday resorts offering sandy beaches, vibrant Harbour, Marina, shops and leisure businesses.

Located within the historic village of Cockington this stunning, character family home offers 4 bedrooms, garaging and park-ing, set in approximately 1.5 acres of mani-cured grounds close to the spectacular South Devon Coast.

The current owners run a licenced and already successful Tea Rooms business from the extensive and picturesque grounds. This ‘life style’ business has masses of potential to be expanded further with possibilities including evening al fresco dining or wedding and private function venue. The ideas are as exciting as they are lucrative and with the high levels of footfall combined with the popularity and charm of the location, this is an opportunity not to be missed.

The new owner could choose to run the business at a level suitable for their own lifestyle, employ a manager for a more back seat approach or revert the grounds back to private gardens if so desired.

There are covers for 180+ in part open air and part covered veranda sitting areas. The grounds and property are kept to the highest of standards enhanced by a pianist who plays during opening hours in a specially built Pergola.

The Tea Gardens are currently open from April to the end of September from approximately 10am to 4.30pm, 7 days a week. All equipment linked to the business is owned outright and will be included enabling a smooth continuation of this successful enterprise if so required.
