About this spot
Holwell lawn lies between Hound Tor Rocks and Haytor. It has to be the best display of bluebells on Dartmoor.

Normally at some time between the beginning and middle of May. The exact blooming time of bluebells changes each year. Weather, rainfall and yearly temperatures all have a direct impact. But these often flower in late may due to their altitude of about 300m.

The name ‘Holwell’ probably derives from a local holy well in the area, and indeed there are some 18th-century ruins in the field. However, these are predominantly carpeted in purple for the majority of May.
