The Cheeswring is a stone formation high on Bodmin Moor. We parked our car in the very well sign posted car park. It was about a mile's walk to the stone formation, which was really spectacular.

This place is amazing. If you walk up through minions its a lovely trek. You can look at the old buildings and there is a story behind the small little cave roof. Wear waterproof footwear and have fun. Great to play with the kids and tell stories. :))

If you are near, go and see the Cheesewring and The Hurlers, it's worth it. It's not only the rock formation, butthe whole surroundings - the moor, the horses and sheep, walking by without beeing fenced in.

Dont go there just for one hour, spare at least whole afternoon - it is worth it !!!! A bit longer walk (not sure about the distance but it took me... More
