Superb remote location a short walk from Brixham Harbour with incredible views right across to Torquay, Paignton, Exmouth. Sidmouth and on a clear day as far as Portland Bill. There's a huge Napoleonic Fort, Coastguard Lookout, Lighthouse and for the more eagle eyed an intact...More

An interesting fort with defences only towards the land and none by the coast. The visitor centre is interesting but lacks a little history

The children didn't fancy a long walk but couldn't get them to leave when it was time to head back! Incredible views. Loved every minute of it.

Even on a very windy afternoon, what a glorious place to walk, we were well wrapped up. The seagulls were swooping and diving in the wind they seemed to be enjoying them selves as much as we were !!

If you like coastal walks then this one won't disappoint. Lots of historical information and plenty of wildlife. The views around the bays are stunning, not to be missed.
