First we went to the visitor centre, where very well and friendly attended and guided. The walk was simply fantastic with spectacular views of the moor and Haytor Rocks. A must-see if you go to Dartmoor.

Popped past here on the way home from Dartmouth and well worth the detour. There's a pay and display carpark with the usual visitor centre (quite nice) plus toilets and a burger and cake van. Slightly further up the road are a couple of off...More

Lovely views from Haytor across the somewhat bleak terrain. Great area for walking or cycling and of course seeing the Dartmoor ponies and the local wildlife. Certainly worth a visit and is fairly close to Widecombe in the Moor where you can obtain meals, drinks...More

Lovely view. Steps up the rocks apparently created by the victorians gives an extra dimension to these rocks. Tidily kept. Not far to walk from the car park.

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.
