A great walk, being from Norfolk and walking only flat ground this was a little strange for my legs to get used to and even though it doesn't seem that high as you walking the altitude is different if you not used to it. Definitely remember to take a drink as I forgot and it's a long walk back if... More

A great place to walk and take in the wonderful views - definitely a family day out sort of place - lots of space for kids to run around!

From the Minions Mining Heritage Centre it's a short uphill walk to the Cheesewring rock outcrop. Best views of it are available without climbing to the top!

Had a fantastic afternoon at the cheesewring and geocaching around this area. We had great weather which always helps but it is truly a lovely area to explore

We found it a little hard to find, but once you find it, it is well worth it. The climb up is steep and hard. Amazing these natural wonders! Who placed these here? So many questions? The views were tremendous. It was windy and cold, so make sure to dress warm and wear good shoes - lots of walking. The... More

Great walk from the hurlers stones up to the top of the tor with boulders of granite balancing one on top the other. It's unbelievable that they are natural and no one has placed them there. The walk was finished off with a ice cream in the quaint village of minions. Well recomended

To be honest it's just a load of old boring rocks on a soggy hill. Thought that it would be amazing but there's not even a phone signal there... My dad went and had a poke around but I stayed in the car because it looked to steep and slippery, you could have broken an ankle trekking up that mound... More

Really enjoyed our walk from the car park past the Hurler's Circle and up to the Cheesewring. Children are 7 and 8 and it was the perfect distance for them with a little bit of challenge thrown in but perfectly safe. We came back via the old mining ruin which houses some good info on the history of the area... More

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!
