Despite poor signposting and less than adequate road access, this is a journey well worth making.. Initially driving south we missed it, but then then found it on the return leg. The final mile or so is along a very twisty and narrow road to the (paying) car park. The walk into the site is gently uphill and along tracks.... More

walking, birdwatching and generally enjoying the views, a good place to relax. The car park is half price in winter, we paid £2 for 4 hours. There's a very good cafe within the northern fort. The whole area is quite large so allow plenty of time if the weather is good

Having visited Berry Head many times over the past years I can say what a wonderful place this is to walk and explore at any time of the year. The views are truly spectacular, there are toilets available, long and short walks from Berry Head available, car parking and a decent dog friendly cafe. The area is full of history... More

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
