This is a very well worthwhile visit. I walked up from Brixham town on a chilly January day but the sun was shining and it was fine. The cafe is good for a snack and the views are worth the hike. Even on this winter's...More

Where do I begin, well firstly Berry Head has some beautiful views, of the coastline, and it would appear to be steeped in our history for hundreds of years. A strategic post for our coastal defence, however, the signs are poor, the grounds are in...More
