Coombe Tor (Castle Drogo)
Here there are at least three sizeable rockpiles hidden in the trees above Coombe about a mile to the south-west of Castle Drogo. The most impressive outcrop is the lowest which stands above an old sunken track but the largest is probably the higher pile which is completely enshrouded in vegetation.
The tor's rocks cover a modest area and rise up from the leafy slopes like miniature towers. Small caves speckle the granite that provides support for ivy and other climbing plants.
The tor was once reached by crossing the steep field high above the path beside the River Teign and proceeding through a gate on the south edge of the wood and then heading up the gentle slope. But now, as of 2021, an electric fence has been erected adjacent to the Two Moors Way around the lower perimeter of the field and therefore permission to visit Coombe Tor must be sought.
There is another small collection of low boulders on a spur of the hill below the tor at SX 720895 but these also reside in a private enclosure.
