We’re truly sorry to have to advise you that the repairs we have been trying to effect have been unsuccessful.

Thank you all for your support this year and please stay tuned here for more information in the forthcoming months.

With our warmest wishes

**12/10/20 UPDATE**

We will bring you further updates towards the end of this week.

Apologies for any disappointment caused and thanks for your patience.



Good Morning All

It has been great to see so many of you over the last few days.

A huge thank you to everyone who has visited us since we have reopened and for your continued patience.

Now that we are getting busier, a little reminder to keep an eye on the queues for the carriages transporting you back to our Top Station.

Towards the end of sunny days the queues are getting longer at Oddicombe Beach due to the current social distancing measures which we are complying with.

Our last carriage each day is at 5:30pm so please do allow enough time for queuing.

As a guide, the photo illustrated takes approximately 40 minutes for the person at the back of that queue to return to the Top Station.

Naturally we don’t want to leave anyone behind (it’s an uphill walk!), so please do ensure you reach the queue in time.

Many thanks and we look forward to seeing you soon.

Great news- we are now up and running in accordance with the current Government guidelines.

For further information regarding your visit, please see below.

Also please note that since we are in the “Public Transport” category, by law everyone over the age of 11 years travelling with us must wear a face mask. Masks are available for purchase only at our Top Station.

If you are intending to just travel one way (up the hill) please ensure you bring your own mask. It’s a long walk we would hate you you to have to do otherwise 😉

We look forward to seeing you (and your face masks) very soon!

Visitor Centre

Regretfully, and with the safety of our Volunteers in mind, a decision has been made not to open our Visitor Centre on Oddicombe Beach this year.

Many thanks to all our wonderful volunteers for their efforts over the last few years and also everyone who visited the Centre.

We  continue to monitor Government advice and hope the Visitor Centre will be able to reopen safely in the future.
