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

If you are someone who is fascinated by neolithic stone circles, the whys and the wheres, then this is a great place to see. My trip was a wet mizzley day- just me and the ponies. Daniel Gumb's stone house and the incredible cheesewring, the neolithic village remains and the long line of standing stones off to the West are... More

A lovely evening meal with very helpful and attentive staff. The only problem was that there was so much on the first course that we didn't have room for a pud. And I had my mind set on the crumble. Never mind - next time!

A lovely moorland walk. Take wet weather clothes, as can change quite quickly. The rocks are stunning, they way they have been formed has many people theorising. Take a packed lunch and enjoy a day in the Moor near Bodmin.

One of our favourite walks on a Sunday afternoon. We park at Minions and then walk past the Hurlers (stone circle), then have a look at Gold Diggings Quarry (see if any mad people are swimming) and then up to the Cheesewring. The walk is quite tricky, over the rocks and boulders, but the views from the top over the... More

Precariously balanced piles of huge rocks stand atop a hill, one side of which is gouged out for stone quarrying. The largest rock pile is known as The Cheesewring and is a well-known landmark on Bodmin Moor. Look closely and you will see that an attempt was once made to secure the stones, using an iron stake. It would be... More

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. The Cheesewring is a set of stones piled on top of each other like stacked cheeses, it is a natural formation that has developed... More

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. :))
