Visited Occombe Farm today with 3 generations of our family from 4 to 66. We sat outside in the sunshine and had our lunch whilst the 4 year old played on the climbing frames. Good selection of food and drink with a local flavour. We then walked the nature trail looking at the animals and birds and plants in the... More

Not bad considering its free to park and enter. Is probably suited to 3-8 year olds more so than my 1 1/2 year old as the nature trail has lots of fun activities to do along the way, but she was too young to enjoy them. Lots of walking, but worth it.

Not sure if we managed to miss signs to the rest of it, but we saw a vegetable garden, an air raid shelter (?), two piglets and two lambs but couldn't see anything else. We didn't go on the nature trail as it was not buggy friendly and would have been long to carry my toddler round, so maybe there... More

We visited the Farm and Restaurant during the Easter School Holiday with our five-year old Granddaughter. Thoroughly enjoyed the experience as we always do. The Nature Trail was a bonus and great to complete. Cafe staff were extremely friendly and food was delicious, as always! Well worth a visit by both locals and visitors.

We visited over the Easter weekend and our children were kept well occupied by the Easter treasure trail which taught them about different birds. It cost £2 for the trail sheet which included a chocolate prize at the end, but admission to the farm is free. Having learnt about different birds, the girls loved the bird hide at the end... More

Went here with a friend for Sunday lunch. I had Pork, and my friend had fish and chips. We were very happy with the excellent food. We would highly recommend this cafe.
