  • It's one of the most beautiful spots in Devon in my honest opinion. On a clear day, with a picnic, it's heaven. There's plenty of free parking nearby and the views are literally breathtaking.

  • Great place for walking and climbing, very misty the day we visited, but that just added to the atmosphere!
  • Very nice rock is to climb up very nice view I would say good this place to my frends
