I decided this afternoon, as Pete`s on lates, and it was such a lovely day, to take a walk out to Cockington, a country park. I couldnt believe how hot it was either, especially as the mornings have started to be much chillier. It was a real treat walking in the dappled sunshine under the trees, many of which have started to turn some lovely colours.

Cockington Court, is a lovely old building which houses a nice tea room, and craft shops, it has a lovely sweeping green infront, where people sit, play ball games, and on sundays in a very English country way play cricket. There are some beautiful trees along the drive, and edges.

I followed the path, covered in leaves, down to the Game-keepers cottage.

It`s a lovely old thatched building, set amongst the trees, I`d love to know its secrets. All of Cockington village is thatched, its very `chocolate box` pretty.

My husband mentioned Cockington only the other day. His parents used to come down from Manchester to stay with dear friends in Babbacombe, and would go out for a drive to Cockington every holiday. I've not been there, but it looks lovely.
