On arriving here, there is a small car park close by. Dogs are allowed on leads, due to cattle & sheep grazing. Firstly, you come across The Hurlers Stone circle, before The Cheesewring commands the Moor from its’ lofty perch in the distance. It is...More

Close to the Hurlers stone circles ( 1 mile apart from eachother) and much closer to Liskeard than to Bodmin: park your car, walk and see them both. It takes about two hours to do that on foot, which is the only way. Unless you...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

Not an easy climb to the top, but if you do - the views around are amazing. Was well worth the climb to get photo's from the top

There's a car park in Minions very close to the stones, but I arrived here walking from St Cleer, following the road, which is an easy walk of about one hour. As you arrive there's the visitor centre of Bodmin Moor right in the middle...More
