We had a lovely time in the area and visited the amazing stones. I never realised how big they actually were. One word of warning keep a look out for the mist. It comes in quickly and it was hard to see the village!!!

The 'Cheesering' is a unique rock formation unlike anything you've ever seen. Along with The Hurlers stone circle nearby, it's one of the great historic areas of Cornwall, situated well inside the bleak Bodmin Moor. It's some distance from a main road, so be prepared...More

Great walk for an excellent view. Minions is on the map for being a place to visit and get a photo with the kids thanks to disney but this place shouldn't be missed if there. Weather is the key here and we were fortunate that...More

You'll read reviews of the Hurlers that mention the Cheesewring (I just did one) because they are next to each other and use the same car park. It's about 10-15 minute walk from the free car park and fairly easy going until you get close...More

A group of us walked around the area and some of us climbed to the top of the Cheesewring. The scenery was stunning all around and the view from the top was well worth the effort and all the stones we had to climb over....More
