It's free to visit this organic, working farm on the edge of Paignton. Open to the public 7 days a week, it includes a Farm Shop and Cafe serving local produce and a wonderful kitchen garden with a wartime allotment and air raid shelter. You can see farm animals including cows, sheep, goats, chickens, pigs and alpacas, and walk a lovely 2km nature trail with a bird hide. 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 an events programme at Occombe and it's other sites, so please check the website for details of what's going on before you arrive. Free parking!

We came to visit Occombe farm as it was on our free to do list, and were not disappointed, they had great gardens to look around, to see veg and fruit being grown was good, gave us inspiration.

Another lovely place to take the children. One part has got little tractors for the kids to sit on and rush around. Nice trail leading around the farm. Some ducks and organic shop. There is a restaurant inside and an eating area outside. Nice to have a picnic. Good play area for the children

This is a nice place to a have a short walk with children, with animals to see and trails through the woods. There is a small play area, cafe and shop. Although it is free to visit the prices in the cafe, shop and and for any activities which are laid on are really expensive. My advise is go there... More

There are not many places you can visit for free these days so this is worth a visit. There were plenty of farm animals to see and and activities for children and the farm shop sells some lovlly produce. Not a day out more of a drop in for a look type of place.

It may be free but don't bother with the shop or cafe the prices are extortionate and the quality is so so cafe service is very slow

See the farm animals and enjoy the nature walk The walk is an easy one and I believe that there is a wheelchair friendly route. Last time we went we saw pigs, cows, ducks, and chickens. There's a bird watching area with a hide. Very nice farm shop and cafe. Great free day out and wonderful for he children.

We love coming here! It's free entry (unless there's a special trail) and if you take a picnic it's a free day out! There's always something new to see. The staff obviously put a lot of hard work in to the farm. The special themed trails are so much fun. Especially now my son is 6 and understands it better.... More
