Plenty of free parking with great views and walks. Very popular with dog walkers as they can be off leads. Two separate cafés on each side of the hill are an extra asset.

This is an amazing walk in unspoilt Cornwall. We walk up from the bottom rather than drive up as it's a great work out and gets the heart pumping. It's around 20-30 mins to the top and well worth it. Once up there you are...More

There is a reasonable car park at the top by the monument & several others on the way up the hill. The 360 degree views are outstanding - certainly one of the best in Devon & Cornwall.

There is a choice of length of walks, so you can always vary what you see. Wonderful views, moorland paths, the quarry always engages the children with the carvings and the possibility of a little supervised scrambling. No extra facilities but cafes near by. Well...More

What a lovely relaxing place to come and unwind. Cracking views and peaceful surroundings. A gem of a local restaurant to be found at the engine house.

A hill top site with a great deal of historical significance. Tumulii, civil war battleground, mineral mining, stone quarries, arsenic flues, engine houses all feature in an abandoned landscape largely now recycled back to nature.
