Great Area of beautiful landscape to visit for free. Nearby are the Cheese rings it can get very windy at the top of this so be careful weather permitting. There are also the standing stones called the Minions huge boulders in a stone circle very interesting and in the background are the old tin mining buildings.

We parked at The Wheal Tor restaurant and walked via Minions to reach the Cheesewring returning via the disused railway course. The walk was fine but a major disappointment was to find that the heritage centre was closed and had been for several years dispite its prominence in guide books and the pathfinder map.

Well worth a visit but allow some time to get there and climb. There is a lovely circular walk that takes you back to the village of minions where you can go to the tea room or pub.

Better signposting would have been helpful! Otherwise it was sublime. The wind nearly blew us off the Tor!

An amazing place and well worth a visit. On the day that we were there, we experienced sun, cloud, wind, heat and cold! The area is very exposed and the ground can be rough - good walking gear is recommended; the path up to the Cheesewring is steep, but well worth the effort - a geological wonder of nature with...

Cheesewring is a great place to visit if you're a fan of geology and on a clear day like today the views are absolutely breathtaking - of both Devon and Cornwall. The highlight was hearing a cuckoo which I haven't heard for almost 20 years - a real sign of summer. Great place to go for a quick walk and... More

Breathtaking views and interesting ancient ruins. Wild ponies and different types of sheep. Great dog-walking territory but need to keep them on a lead during lambing season.

My reviewer picture shows the natural outcrop of stones on Bodmin Moor Called The Cheesewring. This can be climbed very easily with care up to the top. There is the most amazing 360 degree view when the weather is clear. It was formed by natural erosion of soil over many years. It is advisable to wear stoutshoes or boots and... More
