Overview

This organic, working farm on the edge of Paignton is open to the public 7 days a week. You can see farm animals including cows, sheep, chickens, pigs and alpacas, and walk a lovely 2km nature trail with a bird hide. Our Farm Cafe serves local produce and seasonal dishes and there is a kids play area outside. Visit the beautiful kitchen garden with a wartime allotment and air raid shelter. The farm is run by local charity Torbay Coast and Countryside Trust with all profits going to support its conservation and education work. The Trust run a selection of chargeable events throughout the year at Occombe and it's other sites, so please check the website for details of what's going on before you arrive. Free parking!

Security staff were rude from the second we got out of the car. If you want to go and spend your money on an un-Friendly event with atmosphere similar to a badly run nightclub then this is the place for you
