Just a mile from Torquay seafront, you'll discover the beautiful thatched village of Cockington, and at its heart 460 acres of beautiful country park. Step back in time in the Church of St George and Saint Mary (c1069), take a walk around the ornamental lakes, woodlands and formal gardens or, for the adventurous, follow the Murder Mystery Trail. Relax afterwards in the Tea Rooms at Cockington Court while the kids play on the lawn, delight in the arts and crafts at the Court's Craft Centre, then ride in a horse-drawn carriage though the estate back to the picture-postcard village. We created a few smiles with our gitter tattoos and funky faces. A great day out for all the family!
About the author
I have been face painting and creating smiles with my hair braids, tattoos and body paints for 13 years after finally taking the jump and becoming self employed in 2006. Having a large network of friends I have been able to establish a network of quality face painters and glitter tattoo artists who have a passion for the job which shows in their work throughout the South & South West of England. Orginating from a customer service & sales background the best thing I ever did was become self employed. The money might not be as good but the job satisfaction seeing lots of happy smiles is the best. I hope to continue for many more years to come.
