What a great way to get to the village. Takes you back to days gone by, horse and cart along country lanes, totally magical.

Got 30minutes spare whilst visiting cockington? You could do a lot worse than having a ride on the horse and carriage. A lovey new route. Support hard working local businesses or lose them forever.

Delightful and reasonably priced. Hannah drove the carriage (pulled by Steven) whilst Kirk chatted and gave details of the sights and recommended various walks.An amazing way to enjoy this lovely area and we urge anyone with the opportunity to do this. Simply fun and utterly charming. Tracy and Clive

Great tranquil ride down to the sea front with Hannah driving Nugget and Kirk the co driver pointing out the beautiful sights of picturesque Cockington village on the way. Well worth every penny of the very reasonable price. Thank you

Unfortunately the carriage rides no longer take place. I believe the coachman died 2 years ago and although the family carried on the year after, they have not continued this year. However, Cockington is still a very worthwhile place to visit, it is very pretty and it is not far to walk from the village up to Cockington Hall, where... More

We had a ride on this beautiful Horse and Carriage ride in Cockington whilst on holiday last week. Cockington is a beautiful old quaint protected village and there are lots of lovely thatched cottages, 2 tearooms and 3 gorgeous gift shops to look round. Then take the horse and carriage ride up to Cockington Court where there are unique shops,... More
