Haytor Rock


Devon's most famous tor, Haytor Rock sits on top of a steady, easy climb and is a good way for the less adventurous Dartmoor visitor to tick a tor off the list! A short drive from the A38, Haytor is served by two car parks (often busy in summer) and is accessed via a steady climb over not-too-steep moorland (even toddlers can usually make it to the top without asking for a carry.) Kids will enjoy scrambling over rocks, and more adventurous types can scale the tor itself quite easily. On a clear day there are gorgeous views all the way to sea down the Teign valley.

The nearby visitor centre, run by Dartmoor National Park Authority, provides information and a range of souvenirs.

Not too far away are the picturesque village of Widecombe-in-the-Moor, and the quaint town of Bovey Tracey - so if you haven't packed a picnic, why not reward all that walking with a cream tea on your way home?
