Lovely Spot
Jun 2021
Lovely spot for a walk, wander up the short steel climb to the rock. Decent car parking with toilets and of course plenty of semi wild animals. Lovely views at the top well worth a stop!

Dartmoor, haytors rock
Jun 2021 • Family
Great place to blow off the cobwebs. Spent the morning walking round and climbing the rocks. Lovely gentle walk up not too strenuous. Easy for less able or little legs. Plenty of wildlife too - ponies and foals galore, sheep, cows and birds of prey overhead. Would recommend for a walk to work up a proper appetite for lunch or dinner

Amazing Place
May 2021
Great place to visit. Need to be careful when climbing them with kids as not the easiest. Having said that, my 7 year old loved it and there are plenty of rocks to climb up for younger kids also.

Fantastic stop to visit with energetic teens. The climbs can be a challenge and a bit scary but the kids loved it. Photos were fabulous too and car parking easy

Good range of books and maps of the area.
May 2021
Although the car park was full when we arrived we parked for free in the nearby car park on the Manaton Road and then walked back down to the visitor centre.
The staff on duty were helpful, and there is a good selection of booklets books and maps. We purchased a couple of booklets relating to Haytor which helped us find our way around, explain the things we could see, and make the visit more enjoyable.
The toilets at the visitor centre were open, and clean.

Sunday Walk

Different walks, long, short. What a beautiful day, a little misty but most pleasant. Got up close, safely with some ponies! Amazing views from the top. make sure you have £1 for car parking, great place for all ages and groups! Well worth a visit and then a drive to Widdecombe where you can stop for a cuppa and wander round the village!

Nature at its best!
Aug 2020 • Family
A lovely day visiting Dartmoor and witnessing sites of pure natural beauty. There are toilets open at the visitor centre, usual COVID Common sense applies. The ladies in the visitor centre were lovely and assisted my daughters in purchasing a few keepsakes, one being a book based on the Histroy of Dartmoor, which my 12 year old enjoyed.

The area to walk isn't easy for the less mobile or those with push or wheel chairs. Access to the rock formations is steep and you climb at your own risk (recommend having hand sanitiser with you).

The views speak for themselves as they were simply divine.

Added note if you're a electric car user:- there is a charging point but its a bit temperamental, wouldn't go relying on needing electric.
