About Cockington Country Park

 

Cockington Country Park is a mix of picturesque well-ordered garden landscapes, open parkland, rural countryside and substantial woodland. In amongst this 450 acre park are 3 pretty ornamental lakes, a historic Manor House and a chocolate box village, complete with thatched cottages and a quaint church.

The country park has so much to offer visiting groups with a rich heritage and natural history sessions that cover a range of topics helping to bring your teaching to life.

We offer a selection of Ranger-led visits all linked to the English National Curriculum for Key Stages 1 & 2. We can adapt sessions according to your group’s needs and sessions can provide a fantastic opportunity to enhance your students’ classroom-based learning.

With access to resources such as tablet computers, recording devices and surveying equipment, our activities are equipped to ensure your learners are able to get the most out of their visit.
