About Us

The walk through Occombe Valley Woods includes pathways that are mostly gently sloping, although sometimes it does get steeper and does include some steps. This is a great place to take dogs, especially during hot summer days.

A dedicated local nature reserve and ancient woodlands, Occombe Valley is managed by the Torbay Coast and Countryside Trust. The woods are situated just in between Occombe Valley Road and Sandringham Drive, and can be entered from numerous places. The surrounding places are mostly residential and so adjacent parking is limited, however, why not begin your walk at Occombe Farm which offers car parking, toilets and a café.

The mature trees provide a great canopy which keeps the woods cool even on the hottest of days. There is also a stream running through the middle, making it a great place to go dog walking in the heat of summer.

The dense woodlands are home to much wildlife, including squirrels, badgers, foxes and even deer.
