So near the car park, so go look. Well worth it, you don;t see adjacent stone circles often. You can pop up and round in 20 minutes, or wander for longer. If the weather favours you/

Our children loved the stone circles and were amazed by the big holes in the ground (apparently they are dinosaur footprints!) It was a cold and very windy day and so after thirty minutes the children became cold and so my husband walked them back to the card. Me and my mum decided to brave the walk up to the... More

It's about a 10-15 min stroll from the car park, up to the stones on a clear day you can see Dartmoor to the east, out to the Redstone south and down to the clay spoil heaps west. If you are more ambitious then it's a good place to explore the mining heritage of the area with its old mine... More

Pulled in to the car park which was evidently the resting place for a herd of horses. We were told these are actually wild ponies but they were relaxed and gentle. One was licking a car so we assumed it was trying to start a car wash business. Before we went any further we also saw a gentleman with a... More

This is in the village of Minions. There is a small car park near to the stones and it is all free. The stones are in a circle like those at Avebury. You can see where other circles may have been as there are other odd stones around. There are some lovely views of old mines around the area. It... More

Went off season on a lovely day. Did a longer walk across the moor views were amazing. You definitely need walking boots for this some parts are steep.

Situated on the edge of Bodmin Moot, this area is not as visited as some. This means that walks in the area can be pleasantly stunning

Easily accessible from the nearby car park.Just up the small flight of steps and you're onto the beautiful Bodmin moor.Just ahead of you is the Hurlers with the cheesewring in the distance.A short walk over to the right is Housemans engine house which you can go inside.
