Title:Berry Head Hotel Brixham Part 1: Archaeological Assessment
Originator:Exeter Archaeology
Date:2010
Summary:A report assessing the potential archaeological impact of a proposed development at Berry Head Hotel, Brixham. This report is the first of two reports, the second one is a structural history and appraisal of the hotel building. Berry Head Hotel was built in 1809-10 as a military hospital and has subsequently been used as a private residence and has been a hotel since 1949. The developments proposed include remodelling the main building, building holiday cottages and creation of a spa facility. The impact of the proposed development is considered to be low to moderate. The report says that the area is rich in prehistoric and later remains but the nature and extent of these is unknown. The impact on the World War Two oil tank site and former farm buildings is considered to be low.
