You cannot visit Cornwall without paying a visit to the village of Minions and the Cheesewring. A short walk over the moors from one of two car parks brings you to the Cheesewring. You will not be disappointed with the views over the surrounding countryside. If you want refreshments there is a pub of the same name, the Cheesewring, a... More

Interesting area and don't miss Stowes Pound behind the Cheeswring stone, ancient defensive site with hut circles looking west with 300 degree views - magnificent on a clear day!

The walk to the Cheesewring and to the top of the hill was well worth the time. The view is extraordinary on a clear day.

The Cheesewring lies on top of Bodmin Moor near Minions. To reach it there is a gentle walk along an old mine track and a climb up around the edge of the quarry. The views for here are stunning. You can see for miles around; right across to Dartmoor, all the way down to Plymouth and out to sea and... More

Good, fairly easy walking on open moor, with opportunity for good views and bracing fresh air. Flexible short or medium distance walking paths and short grazed land to choose your preferred route and duration. choice of food and drink facilities in village, also nearby toilets. Can be very cold and snowed up in winter.

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.
