Situated in the idyllic village of Cockington, this characterful family home is hidden in a valley just one mile from the coastal town of Torquay where there are golden beaches, cliff walks, golf courses and plenty of recreational facilities. Cockington is often referred to as the most beautiful village in England, and is the epitome of the chocolate box postcard English village. With more than its fair share of thatched houses, a lovely old pub, village shops and local businesses, Cockington is really somewhere very different. Surrounded by Torquay, it retains its individuality and rural charm. This is a unique opportunity to live in a country paradise, yet only a short distance from the centre of one of England's favourite coastal resorts.
Torbay benefits from a full range of well-respected state and independent schools including the traditional grammar school model. Further afield, the county capital of Exeter provides all of the shopping and dining experiences that one could wish for. Trains to London are fast from Torquay via Newton Abbot.DESCRIPTION
