Cuckoo Rock is a large rock on the northern side of the Deancombe valley, this has been a point of pilgrimage for years. Why is it called Cuckoo Rock? Some say the rocks at the top resemble a cuckoo, others say local farmers always hear the first cuckoo of spring here. I will go for the latter being that I heard a cuckoo here in April 2015!! It is easy to get to along the path from Burrator, it is also just a couple of hundred metres from the top of Combeshead Tor.
