Towards Hound Tor - DACOM

Book Tickets Online

Hound Tor is certainly worth a visit.

At the base of the tor are the remains of an abandoned medieval village. It is believed that the village was abandoned due to plague in the fourteenth century. Granite tors are the defining feature of Dartmoor, and Hound Tor is certainly an impressive example. If you can face the climb to the top you will be rewarded with a view of the great expanse that is Dartmoor- if the weather’s in your favour anyway!

Dogs are welcome on leads and parking is about half a mile walk across moor to the monument.
