About this spot
Combestone Tor is the most accessible tor on Dartmoor, it is literally about 40 metres from a car park. It does also command some superb views of the Dart Valley which drops down 130 odd metres to the river below.

Combestone Tor sits in a strange spot a little on its own on the south moor. It sits between Dartmeet and Holne on the lower slopes of Ryders Hill. The Dart valley is far below on its northern side and that way, along with to the east and west, the distance views are superb.

The actual summit of the main outcrop is studded with forming, formed and unforming rock basins which were the one-time Druidical ceremonial basins.
