Making Occombe Farm accessible for everyone

The Buildings

Gribbles Farm Shop and Butchery are on the ground floor, whilst the Café is on the first floor. There is a lift between floors and the disabled toilets are located on the first floor. The building is built into a bank making the first floor level with the ground behind. This is the level that you enter on from the main long stay car park. Parking is also available in the farmyard on the ground floor level of the farm shop, but please be aware that the farm shop opening days vary.

Toilets

The Café and Farm Shop building has a normal disabled toilet on the upper level in the lobby outside the Café entrance.

Community Kitchen and Garden

The Community Kitchen building houses the 'Changing Places' disabled toilet. The Kitchen has an adjustable height sink, hob and tables. The Community Garden has raised beds suitable for wheelchair users and has a relatively flat disabled access area. If you would like to participate in a group visit or an event we are running and want to discuss it please get in touch.

The Community Kitchen building has a 'Changing Places' disabled toilet and changing area. This features:

  • a height adjustable adult-sized changing bench
  • a ceiling track hoist
  • adequate space in the changing area for the disabled person and up to two carers
  • a centrally placed toilet with room either side for the carers
  • a privacy screen to allow the disabled person and carer some privacy.
  • wide tear off paper roll to cover the bench
  • a large waste bin for disposable pads
  • a non-slip floor

The 'Changing Places' toilet can be accessed directly if the building is occupied otherwise please ask for the door code in the Café.

The Nature Trail

The Nature Trail is designed to be wheelchair accessible using boardwalk and crushed stone. The first part of the trail from the Centre zig zags down a sloping field.

We can provide an electric buggy for use by the public - please call us in advance to hire it on 01803 520022. It is available from the Occombe Visitor Centre.
