Torbay Coast & Countryside Trust and COVID-19.

Here’s an update on what we’re doing…

In order to help limit the spread of the Coronavirus, we have closed Occombe Farm to all visitors. The visitor centres at Berry Head and Cockington are also closed.

We cannot advise when these facilities will re-open. Please check our website: and social media pages for updates.

Our ranger team will be stood down at the end of this week and will only be dealing with emergencies and hazards to safety. We will be unable to undertake routine operations including collecting litter and maintaining footpaths after Friday. All litter and dog bins will be closed from this Friday until further notice. Please help us keep the countryside tidy – take your litter and dog poo home.

All Trust sites, apart from Occombe, remain open at present. We urge you to follow Government guidance and practice social distancing when out and about.

All events and activities to the end of June 2020 are cancelled (including discovery trails at both Occombe and Cockington).

Our head office, located at Occombe Farm, is closed and unmanned. Please only contact us if it is absolutely necessary and preferably by email ( Our phones at Occombe are not being monitored and messages will only be collected sporadically. We apologise in advance for the anticipated delay in our response to your queries.

If you have a Trust membership, please be assured that we will continue to process renewals but there may be some delay.

 We thank you for your support and understanding at this difficult time.

Kind regards, TCCT Team
