“I am a resident walking my dog daily on the beach, need car park charges for 1 hour, not 30 minutes or 2, please be reasonable. There is only 1 poo bin, opposite the car park, people are leaving their doggy bags on the steps very unsatisfactory. Car park today 23rd February flooded, water rates expensive in Devon need to sort these leaks out.”

“Elberry beach is a lovely secluded cove that is brilliant for dogs. We took our dog there and she loved it. Well done Torbay council for providing this lovely spot for dogs and their owners. I do have a suggestion though and that would be to put a shower/tap similar to the one on broad sands beach, other than that EXCELLENT. Highly recommended.”

“Close to both Brixham and Paignton. A lovely walk around the par 3 pitch and putt golf course at Broadsands ( NB Broadsands Beach isnt dog friendly from May 1st to 30th Sept) however Elberry Cove is. A pebble beach so dogs dont get too messy.....Lovely spot....Take a picnic and enjoy. We are a dog friendly guesthouse just 3.5 miles from Elberry. Have a look at www.raddicombelodge.co.uk”
