Preston Down Farm, Preston Down Road, Preston
9am to 5.30pm everyday
This is a great location for a lunch, a snack or a hearty breakfast. Your meal won't be cheap by any means, but the quality is excellent and the surroundings very nice indeed. The shop downstairs stocks the best in local produce, and once again while the prices are sometimes steep, you can't argue with the quality.

This is a great location for a lunch, a snack or a hearty breakfast. Your meal won't be cheap by any means, but the quality is excellent and the surroundings very nice indeed.

A pleasant coffee shop with a good atmosphere. I especially like there freshly made scones with a dollop of Devonshire clotted cream, of course. There’s also a great store downstairs that sells all things local including a fantastic selection of ales.
Visiting Occombe Farm always guarantees a lovely afternoon for all the family. Kids and adults love the nature trail, where you can do birdwatching, wildlife spotting (we’ve seen deer on a couple of occasions) and relaxing in a beautiful and safe environment. They often have events and activities, especially during school holidays and there is a small playground and an outdoor seating area. They also organise regular bigger events such as Occombe Beer Festival and Music Festival — always very popular and loads of fun! There is a cafe and a shop selling gorgeous, organic and locally sourced products. The entry to the farm is free, there is a small charge for events and activities.
This working farm provides an alternative, educational day out with the kids.
They cater to adults too, with a friendly, relaxed cafe with local, fresh food and an educational events programme which attracts some of the best experts around.
Showcases the best food and drink that the region has to offer. Much of the produce comes from cattle reared on the farm itself. As well as this, Occombe Farm really reaches out to the community with it's delightful cafe, an education centre, cookery workshops and nature trial. This summer sees the first Occombe Farm music festival on 28 and 29 August - featuring a host of talented performers including The Quails!
