We were fortunate to visit on a sunny day but this place would be worth visiting in any weather. The views are spectacular include the nesting birds on the cliffs and all around views of the bay and out to sea. Interesting buildings, structures and plants to explore and plenty of seating provided. This is free to view but parking... More

We walked here from Brixham. A steady comfortable 30 minutes from breakwater beach. Upon reaching Berryhead you can take various walks. Down a slopping path to see the old quarry site which reward you with striking cliff quarry with wild birds nesting. Once inside Berryhead walls you can visit a small visitors centre to pick up maps etc and download... More

With Brixham so busy in the summer, it's a great escape from the crowds below. The views are stunning and it is a haven for wildlife too. There's a hive to watch seabirds, so if you pack your binoculars, you'll see Cormorants, Kittiwakes, Fulmars and plenty of others too. A lot of people visit Brixham without even realising Berry Head... More

I walked up to Berry Head 3 times within the 10 days that I stayed in Brixham, not only is it a beautiful walk, but the final destination is stunning with views across Torbay and there is a Fort at the head - originally Napoleonic. I was lucky enough to twice spot Porpoises in the bay. It is very doggy... More

If you want to spend a few hours taking in the views and enjoying a good walk, then Berry Head is for you. The scenery is wonderful, though it can be very windy! The walk is great and there are fort ruins from the Napoleonic Wars, which are fascinating. There is plenty of seating for those that need a rest... More

Stunning views. Was once a Napoleonic Fort and a Royal Observer Corps Cold War bunker. Unfortunately not open. Very nice dog friendly cafe. Good walks. Tip. The Satnav post code of TQ5 9AP is rubbish. Carry on up the hill until you get to the hotel entrance, fork right and keep going up the hill until you get to the... More

You can walk right up to the light house and you get the most wonderful views all across the bay. You can see all the wildlife around you . It is just a great place to relax with the sea all around you.
