Just outside Minions, there's a small free car park where you can stop and take a walk to three prehistoric stone circles. They are easily accessible and worth the walk especially if the weather is good. It does get boggy and wet and the wind...More

If the weather was like this in early September, what must it be like in the winter? Wind and driving rain, and the ground was sodden underfoot, but this just added to the atmosphere. Easy to get to from the car park, but far enough...More

A short walk over grass to stone circles and rock formations. The tin mine to the right of the stone circles is actually a visitors centre (unmanned), but we'll worth a visit. The very small village of Minions has three tea shops, although I can't...More

The Hurlers are three stone circles on Bodmin Moor, very close to the village of Minions. They aren't particularly tall, so they aren't visible from a distance like Stonehenge, and several of them lie flat or are missing entirely. The walk from Minions is very...More

The Hurlers and nearby Cheesewring are fascinating historical and geological features for this area. Excellent walking in the area and a good picnic spot for families. The nearby cafe and pub, which serves good food all day, are both very good.

The parking is free and there are some great information boards that you can read that give you the history of the stones and renovation work that has been carried out. We went on a warm evening and the ground was very dry but do...More
