Tors in Bovey Tracey
Dartmoor is known for its tors. The National Park also attracts huge numbers of walkers every year. Bovey Tracey is a great base from which to discover many of these tors on foot. Over the years, we've photographed most of Dartmoor's tors and hills. The following recommendations are all relatively close to the gateway town. See our Dartmoor National Park listing to see more.

Haytor Rocks

There are a number of car parks by Haytor Rocks. It's a very popular place because it's a very beautiful place. The views are huge.

Hunter's Tor

Small tor at the north west end of Lustleigh Cleave. This is a very special place and we can't recommend highly enough the walk along the ridge of Lustleigh Cleave to Hunter's Tor.

Harton Chest

This is a short walk away from Hunter's Tor (Lustleigh Cleave) in Lustleigh Cleave. Again, it's a very special place. Autumn is particularly beautiful when the leaves turn.

Hound Tor

Along with Haytor Rocks, this is an immensely popular tor. It's big and attracts scramblers and climbers. Walk down to Hound Tor Medieval Settlement as well.

Bowerman's Nose

Remains of a tor on Hayne Down. Bowerman was a huntsman turned into stone by witches. Great place.

Chinkwell Tor

One of a number of tors close to the moorland village Widecombe in the Moor. Bonehill Rocks, Honeybag Tor and Bell Tor are part of the same ridgeline.

Rippon Tor (behind :-) )

Across the way from Haytor Rocks. The views down to The English Riviera and South Devon are superb.

Hameldown Tor, Devon

Hamel Down is a vast sweep of moorland near Widecombe in the Moor. This tor is at its north end near English Heritage's Grimspound.

Easdon Tor behind Hound Tor

This tor is a little out of the way. Few people visit. This is a shame because the views from its summit are amazing. If you have time, visit.

Sharp Tor (Dartmeet), Devon

Beautiful tor near the stunning Dart Gorge. In the area, also visit Bench Tor.
