Lanscombe House - Country House

Address: Cockington Village Near Torquay Devon  TQ2 6XA
Telephone: +44 (0) 1803 606938
Region: Torbay - more
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.

AA 5 star and a AA breakfast award

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.

Our house lies just moments from the beautiful south Devon Coastline, on the edge of the unspoilt South Hams district and close to Dartmoor. The Park allows you free access to enjoy the miles of nature walks, browse the craft studios, take a relaxing ride on a horse drawn Victorian carriage or indulge in a sumptuous Devon cream tea in a choice of Tearooms. In the evenings there is the Lutyens designed thatched tavern, the Drum Inn, while further a field enjoy truly excellent food South Devon has to offer from our personal recommendations: great pub food, sea food bistros or even three Michelin Star restaurants right on our doorstep. Lanscombe House the perfect base to explore South Devon and the South Hams area, from the numerous tourist attractions to the unspoilt coastline, countryside and the wilds of Dartmoor.

All our beautiful and individually decorated and furnished rooms have digital l.c.d. colour t.v. beverage tray, alarm radio, hair dryer and toiletries. We are centrally heated with supplementary heating in all rooms. At bedtime you will appreciate the luxury of our cotton rich satin striped linen. Each has a full en-suite shower or bath room with glass shower enclosures or bath with shower over, a heated towel rail and 100% cotton towels
