Having recently moved to the area, this has become our favourite evening dog walk. The views are amazing. Some of the best sunsets. No matter how many times I go I still love seeing the stones and being in the moorland. Well worth a visit...More

An amazing place to visit, best on a lovely day, but also nice when windy to blow away the cobwebs. An amazing ring of stones some still standing, also worth wandering over the moors enjoying the freedom to visit the Cheesewring. A stone standing circles...More

A beautiful atmospheric place and so peaceful. We walked across the moorland from the free car park at Minions to Hurlers. Hardly anyone about except sheep and birds. If you get this far, its a must to go on to Cheesewring!

This is an historic place. Not as big or dramatic as Stone Henge , but just as interesting. The area around is great for walking . We did it on a really wet day but will return in better weather.

Well worth a short walk from the car park at Minions. It is a lovely walk with beautiful views on a clear sunny day. Extend your walk to the Cheesewring for a 360 degree view across both Cornwall and Devon. Allow a couple of hours...More
