The Tors Inn, Belstone, Dartmoor National Park

Walking pub

Dartmoor has some great 'walking pubs'. Up on the high moor is The Warren House Inn. In the east of the Park is Widecombe-in-the-Moor's The Old Inn. Belstone's The Tors Inn is superbly situated for those wanting to explore Dartmoor National Park's north plateau and then relax with a pint and a meal.


Dartmoor's north moor

The Tors Inn is located in the heart of Belstone village next to Belstone Church. The village is a gateway to Dartmoor's north moor and some of its finest tors.



There's a large car parking area at the entrance to the village. Park there and wander to the pub.


Pub garden

The pub garden looks out across Belstone Great Green to the vast dome of Cosdon Hill (Cawsand Hill).
