About

You may be surprised to know there are woodlands on this well-known headland - almost 20 acres of it! With large footpaths and good visibility between trees, the woods at Berry Head Nature Reserve is an ideal place to allow young children and dogs to explore safely.

The woods are mostly flat with a wide-open field next to it, great for those with younger children to run around in.

Park at the local Berry Head car park (be careful – this car park will scan your number plate on entry and has been known to charge people even if they only turn around in the car park) or walk from nearby Brixham Harbour or Breakwater Beach. When you arrive by the car park, stroll across the wide-open fields in front of you and enter the woods here. If you’re walking from Brixham, follow the road past Berry Head Hotel and enter the woods by the gate next to the Berry Head sign.

After you’ve finished exploring the woodlands, why not wander up to the Napoleonic forts and learn about the history of this breath-taking spot. Take in the panoramic sea views and refresh with a bite to eat at the Guardhouse Café. Please be careful here, the forts are on the edge of the cliff with no safety barriers, so it is advisable to put dogs on leads and keep young children close.

There is plenty of wildlife to spot at Berry Head Nature Reserve, in the woodlands you can expect to see a wide range of birds, butterflies and bees. On the headlands, keep an eye out for dolphins – if you’re lucky, you may spot the Berry Head dolphin pod! Head to the Bird Hide next to the Guardhouse Café to discover the colony of guillemots – you will hear them before you see them!

Berry Head is also home to Greater Horseshoe Bats who roost in the extensive limestone quarries. In Summer, why not join the rangers for a ‘Bat Walk’ to find out more about these protected species.
