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. :))

Stopped here on our way back to Sussex and were not disappointed. The rock formations are quite something and there is an enjoyable walk from the car park all the way round the Cheesewring that returns to the village of Minions. The excellent mark is for the breath-taking views from the top of the Cheesewring. A 360 degree view that... More

If you park your car at the well-signed car park in Minions, walk a couple of miles or so north of The Hurlers stone circles you will encounter the Cheesewring, a fantastic rock formation resulting from thousands of years of weathering in the ever-changing moorland climate. Just as a long extinct volcano leaves behind a "plug" of weather-resistant lava, the... More

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.

On of the best places in Cornwall. when you going to visit - I recommend to order nice, sunny weather and pack raincoat, warm jacket and cap, firm shoes. 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
