Otherworldly and serene it is a beautiful relic to a hidden and mysterious past. Recommended.

Spinster’s rock is at a Very rural location, in a quiet field adjoining a farm. The times we have visited there have been either sheep or a pony accompanying us. A wonderful array of lichens and mosses grow on the rocks of the dolmen.
If you use google maps you are unlikely to find the rock as you’ll end up directed somewhere near chagford.
We tend to spend about 20 minutes there. Plenty of parking alongside , we’ve only ever seen one other visitor , it doesnt tend to be a busy place unlike some spots on the moor .

Interesting relic

Difficult to find unless your sat nav knows where to look! Seems to be well looked after and there is room for one or 2 cars to park on the roadside. Good for a 20 minute visit

Pretty standing stones & easy to access

Spinsters Rock is a bronze age megalithic structure in remarkable condition. It's easy to access in the middle of a field with a sign on the gate giving you some information. I found it easily enough with my GPS and was able to park next to the field.

Worth A Look
Sep 2016 • Couples
If you are in to these sort of things like I am its worth taking a detour to this field to see this Dolmen.
You need to have good Sat Nav or prepare with map to find but only a few meters off the lane.
Twenty minutes well spent for my wife and me.

Devil to find
Jan 2016 • Couples
and sadly the battery on my camera died.
I can add just a little to the other review...TQ138JN on your sat nav will take you to Whiddon down while EX202QT will take the Sandy park route then follow the good directions in the review below.
By the way,we have more and better in Cornwall....

Fascinating historical monument.
Jul 2015 • Family
Its a right problem to find this as it's in the middle of a warren of Devon lanes and you can't see it from the road. If you leave Whiddon Down going South on the A 382, it's the first turning on the left. You drive on this minor road, north east and its in a field on your right opposite the first farm you come to on the left. There's parking on the verge and a small cricket gate into the field. There were horses in the field on the day I was there!! It's a fascinating dolmen and unlike any of the other prehistoric monuments on Dartmoor. There's not much to see and minimal information on the board on the gate but it's another intriguing part of the magical Dartmoor picture and a chance for the kids to be photographed inside a prehistoric burial mound.
