|Combestone Tor must be the most accessible Tor
on Dartmoor having a car park only 75 yards of level walking from its summit.
It sits alongside the road from Hexworthy to Venford Reservoir and Holne
and offers superb views. To the east is the Dart Gorge and Dart Valley Nature
Reserve, to the north, is Dartmeet below Yar Tor, to the north west, beyond
Bellever Forest and Bellever Tor, lie the high moors of northern Dartmoor
and to the south are the high moors of southern Dartmoor. The valley of
the River Dart is some 400 feet below the Tor and you can often hear the
'cry of the dart' as the waters crash through the rocky defile below.
