“round and round in circles...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2013

This was a great find! We were only staying down the road at Mynheer Farm, but were so glad the owner recommended we take a visit to the pit. It was a lovely place - very well kept and managed. There was a lot of information available, to learn about the interesting history. it was also great fun to walk the circles.
Well worth a visit.

“Important Methodist site”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2013

A surprising place to find an amphitheatre. This site is an important place in the history of Methodism and of Cornwall. There is a small chapel and visitor centre with information. Also Sunday afternoon services on some dates during the summer. It is easy to imagine John Wesley preaching to thousands of people here, though there have been some changes since his day. There are steps.

“A great surprise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2013 via mobile

We discovered it by chance as it is really near our cottage. it's beautiful, unsual and full of history. our children loved walking all the way round and all the way back up as they get a certificate. a hidden gem!

“A little piece of Cornish heritage”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

I love Gwennap pit. It's steeped in history and worthy of a visit. There isn't a great deal else at the sight and a visit does not take long. I was lucky when I went that it was a beautiful day and I was the only person there and it was tranquil and special.

“Tranquil and important”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2013

Not much to see, but a significant historical site. Not easy to find either. A peaceful spot for reflection.
