We have been here every year for the past 10 years and are always amazed. There are things that although you may see them elsewhere, it's so different here. There seems to be a magnet that draws you back time after time. The wildlife you encounter and the birds are beyond belief, to see them in such a breathtaking environment... More

About one & half mile walk out Brixham through woods. Plenty of steps. Fabulous views. Old Napoleonic fortifications, lighthouse (shortest in England), pleasant cafe. Do go if in area.

My wife and I had a stroll to the little lighthouse and then along the coast to Brixham. The views are magnificent and the main areas such as the cafe and lighthouse are accessible to all. The coastal path is quite rough and steep in places but well worth the walk because of the views across to Paignton and Torquay.... More

Walked along the South West coastal path from Brixham harbour. A beautiful walk to a stunning location. The views are spectacular all around. Well worth a visit as is the Guardhouse cafe. The only thing that spoilt such a beautiful place was the amount of dog mess not picked up my the dogs owners.

Had a wonderful day here recently. Stunning views of a very picturesque coastline. Weather was sunny and the sea calm. Watching the dolphins was a joy

I came here and paid £4 for 4 hours to park at the top of the cliffs. As well as the pretty views along the coast there are a couple of forts to explore, one with cafe, and the lighthouse which is tiny. Whilst here I even spotted a few people rock climbing down the cliffs. Excellent place to spend... More

I've been visiting Berryhead for the past 20 odds years with my family, it's a great place to walk and take in some spectacular views of the bay. Our last visit was tarnished by a parking charge of £85, despite having bought a ticket and left within the allotted time. After speaking to friends in the area I'm not the... More

Just a short walk away from the holiday park we were staying at, this was a great place for walking the dog and enjoying gorgeous views. Easy access and well maintained paths, the car park was just a pound per hour which I though was reasonable. I didn't use the café but it was just a short walk from the... More
