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.
First we had a walk up the hill and next day we were driving to our next destination through the fog and we were really waiting for "The dog of Baskerville" by Edgar Wallace to appear around next corner.
Beautiful nature park, animals all around...More
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!

There are 3 car parks, one after each other on the road. At one end, the car park that has the visitors centre is pay and display, at the other end is a car park with an ice cream van which is also pay and display - however, the one in the middle, with no visitor centre or ice cream van, is free.
It is only a 5 minute walk to either of the other 2 car parks from the free one.

We've not had anyone mention to us that they have had a time slip experience. However, Dartmoor and Haytor are often seen as having 'mystical' properties and certainly there are many people who believe in the power of Ley Lines. These reputedly guided our ancestors and helped identify sites for sites of monuments or worship. Haytor is an area rich in settlements from reaves, medieval village and of course the quarry there have been people living in the area for several millennia.
