Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Forget the Visitor Centre and head for the Moor on a nice sunny day. The scenery is spectauclar, the isolation great and there is nothing quite like Dartmoor

This is a lovely amenity with toilets and ample parking, although there is more parking travelling west where you can also walk up to the lovely Haytor and admire the views. There is no cafe but the hotel behind it offers food and drinks

The walk and surrounding area was magnificent, don't go from the visitors centre but from the car park near the Saddle Back tor, then walk onto Haytor tor. Visitors Centre is great and you can get a take out coffee tea etc at the hotel next door, 100 metre walk.

We called at the Visitor Centre to see if we could fit in a decent walk on our way home from the coast. There is an excellent chap at the Visitors Centre. He’s called Andy and he took time to listen to what we were after and suggested a six mile walk which was absolutely great. We were impressed that he noted we had walking boots on. A guide who is friendly, approachable, and who clearly considered are needs and safety, What more can you ask for? Andy, you are much appreciated. Brilliant.

We parked here whilst walking to Hay Tor which takes about 15 minutes each way. The shop is small but very useful with some nice gifts. There are toilets but for a drink you need to walk to a nearby inn.

we were on our way to Cornwall and stopped and the visitors centre car park to go for a walk around Haytor. The hill up to the top is steep and we saw some lovely ponies grazing. The view from the top is amazing, we did a walk around 4/5 miles around venturing into the two quarries. it is a beautiful place to visit and walk. Please go to the quarry with the pond it is very beautiful and please remember to take your rubbish home!

We visited Haytor Rosks and then Buckland Beacon (only a short drive or long walk between them), giving us fine views across this part of Dartmoor and down into the Dart Valley. These Tors are well served by car parking facilities (fee payable at the parking meters). Great to clamber over the summit rocks and of special interest were the 10 Commandments inscribed on the rocks at Buckland Beacon - a legacy of one man's celebration of the rejection (twice, in 1927 and 1928) by Parliament of the Bill to adopt a new Book of Common Prayer. Haytor and Buckland Beacon - two little gems.

This is a naturally beautiful place with a rugged dimension. The steep clump and then a scramble on the rock to get to the high point where you enjoy fantastic views.
