Berry Head

This stunning headland, with its iconic lighthouse and Napoleonic Fort, is surrounded by water on three sides and offers exceptional views across Torbay and beyond. You can enjoy some superb coastal walks, spot wildlife on land and at sea, or simply relax in the award-winning Guardhouse Café.

Our Visitor Centre will tell you all about the Reserve, its history, wildlife and the work of Torbay Coast and Countryside Trust. Do check for opening times during off peak season. 

This is a must-visit day out and is either a pleasant walk from up from Brixham or short drive to the visitor car park. Dogs are very welcome throughout the site; leads are required in certain areas. 

Disability access is good with tarmac or laid paths into both the North and South Forts. Available for use are two mobility scooters and these can be picked up from the car park on arrival. Prior booking is essential, preferably 48hrs in advance, contact the office on 01803 882619. There is a disabled toilet in the public toilets by the car park and also one for patrons of the Guardhouse Cafe or Visitor Centre.
