About

The high cliffs of Berry Head National Nature Reserve situated on the outskirts of Brixham are host to the largest breeding colonies of guillemots on the south coast of England and these are Berry Head’s most famous residents.   The award-winning nature reserve is also home to a small breeding colony of cirl buntings. In addition regular sightings include sparrowhawk, goldcrest, occasional firecrest, wheatear, razorbill, black redstart and occasional eider duck. Guillemot numbers, best viewed from the sea-cliff facing hide, averages 1,200 birds over the season.

Berry Head National Nature Reserve guards the southern half of Tor Bay. One of the gateways to the English Riviera Global Geopark, it is an internationally-acclaimed heritage site, home to a fascinating variety of wildlife and history, with recently-restored Napoleonic War fortifications. Enjoy the stunning views and superb local food at the Guardhouse Cafe, visit the Visitor Centre, enjoy one of the many events, and walk the ramparts as the soldiers did 200 years ago.

It's also a great site for some serious rock climbing and kayaking for the more adventurous.

Berry Head is free to visit and open all year.
