Welcome to the Torbay Coast & Countryside Trust

We are a local, independent charity that safeguards over 1750 beautiful acres of green space across Torbay.

The Trust exists because Torbay has an outstanding natural environment and heritage that needs special care and attention. We are the stewards of the most important natural places in the Bay – including Berry Head Nature Reserve, Cockington Country Park, Occombe Farm and various woodlands, cliffs and coastal walks. Many of these special places form part of the English Riviera Unesco Global Geopark.

As a charity, we simply couldn't do the work that we do without our members and all of the people who take part in so many of our events every year. From cookery courses to coasteering and from birdwatching to beer festivals, browse our events here
