    First time visiting for me although the kids had been before on school trips. Was brilliant to get the special offer of 50% residency discount. Our tour guide Lucas was excellent! So knowledgeable and funny and really helpful. It was such an interesting tour and the caves look amazing.
    The gift shop is fairly reasonable with gifts and souvenirs to suit all budgets and the cafe is clean with a delicious selection of food and drinks and every staff member we encountered was polite, friendly and professional, really couldn’t fault our experience apart from the rain which meant we couldn’t enjoy the woodland walk today. But would definitely recommend this place !

    Lovely day out. Great for with the dogs and the staff were lovely ( even though my dog was a bit happy 🤣) a lot of fun and so cute to take photos of the dogs next to the miniature scenes. If you go with a dog I'd go with a friend or someone else so that you can still look at the inside displays. I'd say it would be wonderful for all ages but if someone has mobility issues or is in a wheel chair they may struggle to get up the slope. Also as a future assistance dog handler it was wonderful to see signs saying no dogs except assistance dogs 🐕‍🦺 Vs the normal no dogs except guide dogs (for the indoor display areas where dogs can't go) I really appreciate it. If I come on holiday in the area again I will definitely be coming back. Thank you ☺️

    It was lovely taking photos of the dogs next to the models as well 🤣

    Met the owner very friendly and enthusiastic, we took our parents who greatly enjoyed it. I'm nearly 50 & recognised things & appreciated how things had improved for my generation.
    The cafe had a good choice of cakes and biscuits. The cafe staff were helpful and friendly too. The trenches was a experience and insightful, just wish that awful time had never happened!

    Cockington village is as quaint as it gets. Whilst very small, it has a lovely collection of thatched buildings, including a tea house, shops and an old blacksmith's which is now converted to a gift shop.

    Just up from the village centre there is a craft village and church and we chose to take a walk on the circular country walk, which gave us a lovely hour or two in the countryside.

    Finishing off with a cream tea in the tea house, this is a perfect place for a few hours in the English countryside.

    I would really advise a visit. We stayed for over 2 hours and could have stayed longer. Most interesting House and the gardens were kept to a very high standard. The only problem we had was trying to find the Car Park

    Fantastic afternoon out.
    So much to see,took us 3 and a half hours with an excited 8 year old.
    Crazy golf included and the mystical forest is a great addition.
    Go round at your own pace and you'll really enjoy it.
    Council owned car park next door is busy,but spaces available if you're prepared to look.There are other car parks nearby

    What a lovely little place! My son is dinosaur obsessed and had a wonderful time here looking at all the dinosaurs and learning lots of interesting facts! We took two hours to go round it all, and loved the quiz, computer memory game and the dinosaur drawing and reading corner, some great ideas and a well run place. Friendly staff and very reasonable entry. Loved the certificate they collect at the end too, lovely touch!

    Beautiful olde world village with some really lovely cottages. Good sized car park within a short walk of both the village tea rooms and the Drum pub which was a delight to visit with extensive outside seating and a large area for children and dogs to run around in.Visited on a Sunday so buses from torquay centre ran every 20 minutes. Walked into the village along the road but walked back along the fairly flat path through the nature reserve.
    Did not get to see in the cockington visitor centre as it was not open Aretha time ofvour visit.

    The museum is worth a visit. The exhibitions are an eclectic group but all in all very interesting.

    Great location on Torquay seafront. Reasonably priced multi storey car park nearby (on the road towards harbour) friendly staff and nice bars. Camden ale on tap (great)
    Good views inside (we were in the stalls) and good acoustics. There for a matinee and tickets very reasonable (less than £20)
    All in all a good experience
