Yar Tor, Devon


  • Located in Dartmeet, Devon, South West England, England
  • Offering panoramic views of much of Dartmoor National Park, Yar Tor is very easily accessible from either Dartmeet or the road that rises from Dartmeet and then turns north to run between Yar Tor and Corndon Tor. We've located Yar Tor on a Google map, so zoom in on the 'Satellite' setting for detail
  • The views are superb. To the north and north west, you'll see the high moors running between Fernworthy Forest and Great Mis Tor. To the south, you'll see the southern moors topped by Ryder's Hill. To the south east are Sharp Tor (Dartmeet) and the lip of the Dart Gorge beyond. To the north east is the massive dome of Hamel Down
  • We've also walked to Yar Tor from Bellever Forest and would recommend it highly. From the large car parking area in the centre of Bellever Forest, walk south east to the edge of the forest. Cross the East River Dart via stepping stones and climb the path towards Babeny. You'll see Yar Tor ahead of you. Refer to the Ordnance Survey OL28 'Dartmoor' map for detail
