Bell Tor faces southwest and the sun for most of the day which could be why it’s called “Bell” (Druid for Sun). It’s made up of a jumble of Granite boulders only a number of which are climbable.

It’s very close to the popular Bonehill Rocks and as such remains very quiet although there are some excellent problems. It's a good place for visitors who’ve finally had enough of Bonehill Rocks and got that itch (but go to Hound Tor first.. and Saddle Tor... and Smallacombe...).

Keep Dartmoor Clean and Wild. Take home what you bring and keep to the main tracks.

Approach notes

Drive and park on the North of Bonehill (3rd car park) then it's over the road and a 5 minute walk gently uphill. This is the start of a good walk over to Honeybag Tor and is one of a few great Tors within easy walking distance.


Great crag for bouldering if Bonehill is busy!
