About Us

Brunel Woods at Watcombe was acquired by Isambard Kingdom Brunel who planned to retire there and had commissioned the design of a garden and a house, the latter of which was never built. The garden became woodland, with many of the species and features of Brunel’s time still existing today. The site is now managed by the Torbay Coast and Countryside Trust, and contains a network of paths and some impressive views to admire.

Whilst meandering around the site look out for the 58 ft commemorative totem sculpture in the woods known as ‘Brunel’s Dance’, dedicated to the great man.
