Great dog walking, scenery and fab breakfast at the café there that does a great breakfast. Very dog friendly so don't go it you don't like dogs, more dogs in there than people on occasions which is fine by me.

This is a beautiful place to walk and blow away the cobwebs! There are stunning views from the cliffs and if you are lucky you can see dolphins and seals. The dolphins had been seen the morning we went but sadly we were unlucky. There is a hide for bird watching. But in October there are no seabirds nesting on... More

Even though we have just come back from Berry Head and its the end of October, the place is just beautiful. Even though we are fairly local this was our first visit and we will certainly be going back. The walks and the views are just breathtaking and we saw some seals bobbing around the breakwater. Well worth a visit... More

Lovely place to just let the world go by, Take a walk along the cliff tops and you can even follow a trail down into Brixham from there if you want to make a day of it. Nice little cafe on the top of the headland to stop off and relax, Good selection of drinks and food.

a great place to walk, with views across Torbay. The visitors centre is informative and shows the geology of the area. Round it off with a coffee at the Guardhouse

We walked up from Brixham Harbour and it took about it 35 minutes. We had read about Berry Head and the great views but it has to be seen. We heard the Guillemots when we were near the cafe and went to look over the cliff near the bird hide to see where they were and we were left almost... More

Berry Head nature reserve itself is a lovely place, but not for the disabled. I tried to book one of the mobility scooters advertised on their web-site, but no-one ever answers the phone! There is no view whatsoever from the car-park, and the visitor centre is 300 yards away. My mother can't walk 100 yards, let alone 300. I did... More

Fantastic views, great for picnics on a nice day, and excellent dog walking. You can walk done to the old quarry, but its a lung buster getting back up ! There is a good cafe by the head and quite reasonable, car parking like anywhere in Brixton is a bit pricey though. We parked there one year and paid, when... More
