Recently came to live in the area and now starting to explore!! The Cheesewring was fantastic to see after the lovely walk from the car park, and so glad that we wore good walking shoes. On arrival at the "hill" the first thing you see is Daniel Gumb's cave, he was a stonemason and lived in this cave with his... More

Its hard to imagine how these rocks/stones were put here. The weight alone its amazing, worth the walk and climb up the hill. Also say hello to the horses grazing.

There are a few paths to the cheesewring, my favourite is via the quarry and up to the cheesewring then back past the pond (you can see it easily from the top) and along the valley to the car park. Do pop into the converted mine house which is now a small museum. There are some wonderful insights into the... More

A friend and I came for an afternoon walk recently and we loved it. Parked in the Minions car park and followed the walk past the cheesewring and over to the visitor centre. The path isn't that clear so we just followed other walkers.

You nearly always have to book for food, that should tell you how popular this local pub is. Extensive menu, specials, something for everyone.

Park up. wrap up, and walk up, all well worth the effort - stunning views - then down to tea rooms for well-earned refreshment

Millions of years old. On a nice weather day, it is well worth the walk and climb to the top of this historic site. The views are well worth the climb.

The walk up to the Cheesewring from Minions is guaranteed to be exhilarating. There are very few days where it is not blustery on the top, but this adds, rather than distracts from the experience. An amazing view and the feeling of being on top of the world.

I was staying with my best friend in Polperro and we wanted to do a walk to see some ruins or deserted buildings that wouldn't leave us gasping. This walk from Minions to The Hurlers stone circles and then up to Cheesewring Tor was just what we were looking for. There is a free car park in Minions and you... More

Great walk, free car park, fantastic views. The walk goes next to a cornish tin mine which you cab go inside. Would highly recommend but you do need some walking boots.
