Cockington Cottages- About us.

We just love the combination of living in the countryside but so near the coast...

Every time we stroll around our friendly village, enjoy the springtime scent of wild garlic in the country park or watch the resident heron by the lakes in the summertime, we know why we still live in Cockington Village.

It was the prospect of living by the sea that brought us this way. Leon was brought up in Worthing where he loved fishing with his Dad. After many years of living in central, southern England, he was desperate to enjoy that salty air again. The thrill of walking along the seafront and that sense of space and freedom captivates us both. The coastline, with it’s many coves, is breathtakingly pretty in South Devon.

We moved here 19 years ago when we purchased Lanscombe House B&B and spent many years improving the property and welcoming lots of lovely, regular guests. During this time we raised our two girls, Jess and Katie, so this is the only home they’ve ever known. We don’t suppose they’ll truly appreciate just how lucky they have been to grow up here until they’re much older.

In recent years we have utilised our hospitality experience to create 3 luxury holiday cottages. We aim to provide our guests with everything they need to enjoy a relaxed stay and create happy memories in this beautiful part of South Devon. 

We are thrilled that many past B&B guests continue to holiday here and we have a growing number of new regular’s too. All being well, I think we’ll be here for many years to come…

So there’s a potted version about us but if you would like regular glimpses into our lives in Cockington, why not follow us on Facebook? We’d love you to join us…
