This tour starts to the south of the moor at the atmospheric ruins of Buckfastleigh church, where can be found the tomb of Squire Cabal with his links to the famous Sherlock Holmes novel, Hound of the Baskervilles. We then head north across Holne Moor taking in the many sights including Venford Reservoir, Hangman’s Pit and Combestone Tor…the only tor on the moor with its own car park! Reaching Princetown, we pass Dartmoor prison and take in the panoramic vistas of the middle moor with its distant rugged skylines and quarried landscape.
Once on the north moor we visit Brentor and its lofty church on the hill and end up in the ancient village of Lydford with its imposing castle keep full of history and neighbouring quaint church.
