Discounted Entry Into Cockington Green Gardens!

YHA Members get 20% off general admission prices at Cockington Green Gardens aka ‘Miniature Land’. Boasting the cutest little setup imaginable with tiny houses, manicured gardens, interactive displays and over 30 International building replicas… there’s something for everyone, big and small at Cockington Green!

After returning from a trip to the UK feeling inspired, founders Doug and Brenda Sarah came up with the idea of Cockington Green in 1972 and the park opened to the public in 1979. Celebrating 40 years next year in November, the gardens are still completely family owned and operated.
