Pocket Guide: Dartmoor Brent Tor Hotels

The rich and varied seascapes and landscapes of Devon, and the county's diverse cultural heritage, attract visitors from far and wide. Based in any of the hotels, B&Bs or guesthouses here, you can explore Devon's delights in depth, including Dartmoor, a region of unimaginably ancient settlement. The people who lived on this wild and untamed moorland have us left a legacy of standing stones, mounds and Tors that fascinates visitors to the region today, and Brent Tor is one of the most famous of these.

Brent Tor from Devon Hotels

Dartmoor is full of tombs, ancient settlements and strange, convoluted rock outcrops. Brent Tor is probably the most impressive one, and unusually it has the added attraction of a church on top of it, so it's a really interesting site to visit from your hotel or B&B in Devon. The Tor and its church form a distinctive silhouette on the skyline of Dartmoor, reminiscent of Wuthering Heights or Castle Dracula, and one can well imagine the Hound of the Baskervilles roaming the area at night.

Another unusual property of Brent Tor is that, unlike the rest of Dartmoor's Tor structures, it is made of basaltic lava rather than granite. This lava flowed into the area some 350 million years ago, and as it later flowed down to the sea it left behind 'pillow lavas', globular masses of solidified lava. The sea water would have explosively broken many of these up at the time, but others like Brent Tor survived to inspire awe in visitors to this day.

Devon Hotels for a Day Out at Brent Tor

Of course there are many different versions of the story of how that tiny church came be stuck to the top of Brent Tor. Most of them involve the Devil and a sailor he was hoping to shipwreck as he tries to land his boat in a storm. The sailor in desperation prays to his saint, who builds the church as a beacon on top of the nearest high point on the moor, which is of course Brent Tor, and all turns out well!
