Plenty of parking spaces, cheap parking 60p for an hour or £1.10 for whole day! We pulled up and got the deck chairs out. The views were spectacular, coastal walks available . The only 'negative' was the miserable man in the ice cream van.

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

Good parking and a wealth of views if you take the coastal path either East or West - great spot ! You can park just to look at the sea if unable to walk -just lovely !

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?

We had a lovely walk through the reserve on a very windy sunday afternoon in February. View are fantastic and we saw the Cirl Buntings!
