Placed in the car park at the base of Haytor. A useful source of info, with toilets to the side. Car parking is pay and display not expensive though. You very often find a Ranger in this area, very helpful and friendly.

Visited Haytor on the way down to the south coast. Was a great way to break up the drive. Good car park and visitor centre and the views from the Rocks were fantastic. Definitely recommended if you're passing through.

The visitor centre has everything needed - information, shop, toilets, car park and catering from the Dartmoor Farmers Association. The staff are friendly and helpful. We had a great visit - Haytor is fantastic!

Inspiring Tor, with stunning views, mysterious stone pools and strange carved symbols. Once an iron age fort, with ruined hut circles and pounds close by.

It is about 800 metres from the visitor centre to Haytor Rocks with a steepish hill. It should take no more than 30 minutes maximum.
