Holwell Lawn Rock

This is a small but pleasant and isolated rock on Holwell Lawn and a rather pretty spot with an abundance of bluebells in May. This small boulder has a lovely view eastward over the Becka Brook valley.

As stated above, this area of Dartmoor is best known for its famous bluebells in May; they cover much of the lawn here, some 50 metres above the Becka Brook valley. Because of the harsh environment, they usually spring much later in May than other places.
