Dogs are welcome in the top area outside the café and are to be kept on a lead at all times. As Occombe is a working farm dogs are not permitted on the wider farm area or nature trails. This is for the safety of our animals and your dog. If you'd like to take your dog on a longer walk nearby, we can recommend Occombe Valley Woods over the road.
