“Wonderful horse and carriage ride”
Reviewed 17 July 2013

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, tearoom, rose garden and country park grounds. You need to wait outside the pink thatched cottage called Rose Cottage tea gardens (you can't miss it in centre of village) to pick up the horse and carriage. Normally they run every 20-30 minute or there abouts. £12 for a family of 4, so only £3 per head and the ride takes about 10 minutes. Price I felt was about right.

The driver was very nice and friendly and talks you through some of the sites on the way. let the children stork the horse and took a photo of us all on the carriage. It goes on a long route round to Cockington Court so you can still walk about across the country park in about 5 mins. Would recommend.
