We had a lovely time in the area and visited the amazing stones. I never realised how big they actually were. One word of warning keep a look out for the mist. It comes in quickly and it was hard to see the village!!!

The 'Cheesering' is a unique rock formation unlike anything you've ever seen. Along with The Hurlers stone circle nearby, it's one of the great historic areas of Cornwall, situated well inside the bleak Bodmin Moor. It's some distance from a main road, so be prepared...More

On arriving here, there is a small car park close by. Dogs are allowed on leads, due to cattle & sheep grazing. Firstly, you come across The Hurlers Stone circle, before The Cheesewring commands the Moor from its’ lofty perch in the distance. It is...More

Close to the Hurlers stone circles ( 1 mile apart from eachother) and much closer to Liskeard than to Bodmin: park your car, walk and see them both. It takes about two hours to do that on foot, which is the only way. Unless you...More

You'll read reviews of the Hurlers that mention the Cheesewring (I just did one) because they are next to each other and use the same car park. It's about 10-15 minute walk from the free car park and fairly easy going until you get close...More
