Staying close by and being National Trust Members we visited the headland. A vast expanse of beach with rockpools to investigate. A very steep walk up onto the headland with views over the Bristol Channel. Nice little National Trust shop and cafe with friendly staff.

So beautiful, the walk and the views is breathtaking, but I would say to take lots to drink because it’s very long , it’s amazing to see the cows just around

A great place to visit in the right weather. If NT members, be careful to park in the first car park near the NT cafe, where there is no fee for members. Car park further down is not NT and you’ll have to pay £2....More

Whatever your age or physical state if you find yourself at the foot of Brean Down... get to the top. Take the steps slowly if you must but once on the top the view is worth it. Go on... get up there.

We visited Brean Down and the fort as Storm Callum was passing. It made for a very windy trip. However, we had a lovely afternoon there. We parked easily, possibly because it was October. Parking cost £3.00 for the day. There is a cafe directly...More

O.K. with kids when weather is good. I wouldn't rate it as one of the best areas since we have been to much better. But anywhere is better than spending time at scruffy, dirty Pontins!

Definitely worth exploring but keep dogs on leads due to rabbits & steep cliffs. Cafe good for breakfast / coffee / cake. No dogs inside sadly but there is plenty of outside seating & a couple undercover.

The National Trust car park is right at the end of the road approaching the hill on the left, it’s £3.50 a day or free to NT members. I didn’t remember last time I visited that the NT had a small visiter centre there, plus...More

The views today over to the Welsh coast were brilliant, as was the sight of Steepholm & Flatholm. The views towards the west Somerset coast and inland towards the Somerset levels and Glastonbury were also good if a little hazy. The steps up from the...More

I don't think so, my grandsons love crabbing but we certainly didn't see any areas you could have done it in, sorry it's not an exact answer!

I think you can park in front of the bird farm. Why not climb up to uphill church and watch from there .....the view is the same and parking free.

Yes. The number 20 bus goes to Brean Beach from Western-super-Mare. From the bus stop it’s a 10 walk to Brean Down.
