Address

Berry Head nature reserve, Brixham, TQ5 9AW

How to reach us

You can find us within the Northern fort of Berry Head nature reserve, on the southern tip of Torbay (just a mile from Brixham). Postcode TQ5 9AW.

 

Parking

There is a large car park just outside the two forts on Berry Head: TQ5 9AP. At busy times, an additional field is opened for cars. To protect the headland, it is not possible to drive beyond the car park. The Guardhouse Cafe and the Northern Fort can be accessed via a tarmac road from the car park – it is about 300m walk.

The car park uses a pay-on-exit system, but it doesn’t have barriers; instead the camera recognises your number plate and the machine tells you the correct fee when you come to leave the car park. You can pay by cash or card, or you can pay online within 48 hours of parking. Simply log on to https://www.parkwithease.co.uk/make-a-payment.aspx and it should all work smoothly.

Members of Torbay Coast and Countryside Trust can park for free at Berry Head car park.

 

Disabled Access

The Torbay Coast and Countryside Trust has two mobility scooters available to borrow (free of charge) from the car park. You must organise these in advance by calling 01803 882619.

The staff are amazing at the Guardhouse. Alex is obviously a good boss to work for as the atmosphere is always happy. Great place to work if you need a job. Xx

I’d love to work there but unfortunately I don’t live in Devon.
