Cockington’s Lanscombe House has been our home for 8 years now and during that time we have completely refurbished the property and transformed it into the kind of place that we have enjoyed staying at over the years.
It is tucked away in a quiet spot amongst the famous thatches of Cockington Village that nestles at the heart of Cockington Country Park in beautiful South Devon and not far from Torquay. Our emphasis has been on retaining the original Country House ambiance with individually decorated rooms, period & reproduction furniture complemented by quality ensuites. We are just a short level stroll through the Park to the sea and central to Torbay - an enviable oasis of peace and tranquility on the English Riviera.
The listed former Dowagers House to the Cockington Court estate was converted to a hotel many years ago and is now tastefully refurbished in period style to provide eight individual en-suite bedrooms with baths or showers, sunny & spacious breakfast room, elegant guest lounge with seasonal log fires, cosy bar, peaceful Victorian walled gardens and ample parking.
The 450 acres of Cockington Country Park (a former private estate) and its preserved thatched village are situated well away from the hustle and bustle but within easy reach of central Torquay—either a level 30 minute walk or a few minutes by car; the village also has its own minibus service to/from Torquay.
