We enjoyed the walks very much, especially down to the sea from the quarry. Lots to see. Sadly the visiting fishermen from Exeter left their Devon Bait Plastic Bags blowing around to litter the area and the sea they fish - shame on you.

We walk here most days. Conservation work is by Torbay Coast and Countryside Trust and what a brilliant job it dies. Stunning bit of coast path. Guardhouse Cafe is fabulous.... fresh, seasonal, inventive and delicious food.

One of our all time favourite places to walk with our dogs. Because it’s mainly flat it’s suitable for all abilities. The fort cafe is a must as the coffee food and service is excellent with a world class backdrop.

Highly recommend for a couple of hours of fairly easy walking. Easy to follow paths, amazing views and even lucky enough to see dolphins just off the cliffs- breathtaking! Not suitable for wheelchair users or people with limited mobility as not flat and slippery in...More

Nice and relaxing place. Good walking and the path is well marked. The Napoleonic fort is worth a look round. You can get good views and plenty of benches to sit and contemplate the scenery. Plenty of people and dogs walking.
