Ide House Tor

Another of the interesting rock piles residing in private gardens in the village of Lustleigh can be seen just inside the entrance drive to Ide House.

The tor whilst on private land is readily visible from the road and presents as a compact mass of rock with more possibly hidden above.

No doubt this is once more part of the large sprawl of granite that spreads across the hillside high above and to the south of the minor road leading from the village out to Ellimore Farm, encompassing many more fascinating rock groups that are described elsewhere.
