Walked up here from Brixham, through the lovely woods. Views are great and the fort areas fairly busy. Well made paths for aneasy walk. Great way to spend a few hours in the fresh sea air.

Lovely walk and views, a few things to see and a chance to look out the bay and see marine life. Lots of wildflower like sea thift and red valerian. A good walk on the path is towards landscove and beyond.

Lovely views of Torbay from this beautiful tranquil beauty spot. Great for kids to run of steam. Or a quiet leisurely stroll. Suitable for dogs but take care near cliff edges dogs probably need to be on a lead if prone to running about.

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

A few hours sat looking out from various points is a a great way to spend a morning or afternoon. The Guard House cafe is really good and dog friendly
