Visited on 27th March 2017 and wa blessed with great weather. Very easy and relaxing walk with a bit of easy climbing to the cheesewrings. Already earmarked it for a trip with children (primary school age would have no problem and likely to enjoy it). On the way back lost my orientation a bit and ended up in a different... More

It is a good walk and on a clear day you can see for miles, from the coast to Dartmoor to St Austell China Clay Tips. Recommended good... More

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.
