About Us

A family fun day out exploring a local farm.

Occombe farm is a working organic farm in South Devon that is open to the public. There’s no charge to visit the farm and parking is free. Wander around the farm and gardens and explore our fantastic 2km nature trail, bustling with wildlife and with beautiful views of the surrounding woodland. There’s also a café that serves delicious food and an outdoor play area.

Open every day from 9am until 4.30pm, the farm also hosts a full programme of chargeable events including a popular beer and music festival, cookery classes, meet the animals sessions and fun packed quiz trails for the whole family. Visit our website www.countryside-trust.org.uk/occombe or our Facebook page to find out what’s on.

Occombe Farm is part of a local conservation charity Torbay Coast and Countryside Trust. All profits from the café and events directly fund the upkeep of some of the English Riviera’s most beautiful spaces, including Berry Head National Nature Reserve and Cockington Country Park.
