Just north of Golitha falls there is a car park on your left as you approach Minions. From there it is a short walk (you can see the circles from the car park where there is an information board). The first circle has been largely...More

If you like your stone circles, then the Hurlers Stone Circles is actually 3, with more nearby on the Bodmin Moor. Just to the north of the village of Minions high on Bodmin Moor, the Hurlers Stone Circles are easy to get to, but a...More

The Hurlers is an ancient stone circle but for me, the Cheesewring is a better spectacle. A tower of very large rocks, which were piled on top of each other in ancient times. The Cheeswring can be climbed very easily. Once on the top of...More

A wonderful place to walk .wild ponies .sheep and cows. However it can get very very busy after May. Parking is free but the two car parks can get full which can mean parking wherever you can. Weather can change quickly so make sure you...More

Was surprised to find these three stone circles as hadn't heard of them before. Obviously less impressive than Stonehenge but in a more impressive situation. Reached by easy walk from nearest carpark, at Minions. Visit should be combined with a walk onwards up to the...More

Having recently moved to the area, this has become our favourite evening dog walk. The views are amazing. Some of the best sunsets. No matter how many times I go I still love seeing the stones and being in the moorland. Well worth a visit...More

An amazing place to visit, best on a lovely day, but also nice when windy to blow away the cobwebs. An amazing ring of stones some still standing, also worth wandering over the moors enjoying the freedom to visit the Cheesewring. A stone standing circles...More

A beautiful atmospheric place and so peaceful. We walked across the moorland from the free car park at Minions to Hurlers. Hardly anyone about except sheep and birds. If you get this far, its a must to go on to Cheesewring!

The carpark is free, large and in September practically empty. The stone circles are about a 5 minute casual stroll from the carpark. The site itself is not very interesting (apart from the age) but the views across the moors are fantastic. Good photo opportunity....More

This is an historic place. Not as big or dramatic as Stone Henge , but just as interesting. The area around is great for walking . We did it on a really wet day but will return in better weather.
