Little Combe Tor

Combe Tors, Coombe Tors

Located within a carpet of moss and lichen that cover the rocks, you feel you are in an ancient woodland, a rainforest far from civilisation, when in fact, a car park east of Peter Tavy is just a few hundred metres away.

The Combe, as it is known, really is a beautiful place and just north of the path that heads from Peter Tavy to Smeardon Down, this charming outcrop is sited beside a wall.
