We are working hard to make Occombe accessible for all, within the constraints of its landscape and natural environment. We are working closely with an access officer to introduce new innovative schemes, and material, to ensure that everyone can enjoy Occombe.

Do check back from time to time as we work towards greater accessibility and towards providing full access statements.

Occombe Farm Shop

From the shopper’s car park there’s level access to the Farm Shop and designated parking spaces for Blue Badge Holders in front of the entrance. The shop is fully accessible, being on one level, with lift access to Occombe Farm Café above. The car park surface is a mix of tarmac and laid gravel 20mm to dust compacted surface.

Occombe Farm Café

The Café and accessible toilet are on the first floor. The building is built into a bank so the first-floor level has ground level access as you enter from the large visitor car park. There is a lift to the Farm Shop on the lower ground floor level. There is a mix of gravel and laid paths on approach.

Occombe Farm Park and Play

Access information is coming soon whilst we continue to build the play barn and animal farm trail.
