Improved Parking at Bonehill

Thanks to the British Mountaineering Council, Bonehill Down now benefits from improved parking.

Three parking spaces close to Bonehill Rocks had become badly eroded with deep gulleys.  These have been resurfaced under the BMC’s Mend Our Mountains campaign.  This ambitious campaign aims to raise £1,000,000 to finance a wide range of vital path repair projects within Britains 15 National Parks.

Bonehill Down attracts both walkers and climbers alike.  The Rocks are reputed to offer some of the best Bouldering problems on Dartmoor for all ages and abilities.  If Bouldering is your thing, there’s a really good article written by David Henderson describing many of the challenges at Bonehill Rocks.

You can find out more about Bouldering at Bonehill Rocks and Dartmoor in general at Javu.

Of course, if you’re staying at our Dartmoor holiday cottage, Lustleigh Cleave is virtually on the doorstep and offers an excellent selection of Bouldering problems at The Nutcrackers, Harton Chest and Raven’s Tor.

Alternatively, for keen walkers there are fantastic views of Dartmoor.  The view of Widecomeb-in-the-moor is just majestic.
