Berry Head Hotel, Brixham, Devon
A traditional seaside retreat, Berry Head Hotel is superbly positioned at the water's edge, with access to the rocky bays below. Guests are invited to soak up 180-degree sea vistas with easy access to the South West Coast Path. A striking historical building, set within six-acres of woodland in a beautiful country park, the hotel boasts an enviable location in the fishing port of Brixham, south Devon - home of the world-famous fish market; happily you can expect an array of fish and seafood, straight from the day boats. Comfortable spaces are designed around the coastal surrounds, bringing the outside in. Perfect for outdoors enthusiasts, as well as anyone looking for a relaxing escape on a stunning stretch of the southwest coastline.
