Overview
More
This nature reserve near Shaldon was purchased in 2008 to help secure the future of the cirl bunting, a rare bird whose population is almost entirely restricted to south Devon. The reserve is a well-known beauty spot, with stunning views over Lyme Bay. The reserve is great for watching wildlife from cirl buntings and peregrines to butterflies, grasshoppers and crickets.

A wonderful nature reserve with wild coastal and clifftop tracks. Good for walking for a range of abilities. A chance to commune with nature between the built up resorts of Teignmouth and Torquay. A small charge in the car park covers you for the whole...More

Stopped off here for a walk and in the hope of seeing Cirl Buntings - and weren't disappointed; we saw 4. Good car park which happened to have a good icecream van parked for much needed refreshments. A well maintained interpretation panel gave us an...More

We went there hoping to see some cirl buntings, and we did! The best areas for us were the many hedgerows we found after going through the gate on the right side of the free car park (when facing the sea). It is a shame...More

Big car park leading to steep sloping fields overlooking the sea. Surrounded by hedges that curl buntings hide and nest in. Gulls, hawks and smaller birds abound. Good exercise, fresh air, great views and wildlife, what is there not to like?

The breezy nature of this place is almost a constant, although the ever present ice cream fan suggests there are times, even in the depoth of Winter, when an ice cream is an appropriate 'scoff'. The bright naturte is a little less constant but there...More
