Said to have been hurled by an angry God in response to violation of His Sabbath day, these three large stone circles are built close together and vary in size from 105 feet to 135 feet across.

It is a short walk from the car park to the stone circles. It can be a bit marshy so appropriate footwear is recommended. The stones are not huge but interesting to see the formations.

There is a small car park close to The Hurlers. Dogs are allowed on leads, as sheep & cattle graze on open land. Good footwear is needed, and a fine day would be better to visit as it can be quite wild & windswept here....More

Really love this area of Bodmin Moor as it feels different in all weathers. We walk here often. Such a lot of history to soak up, Engine house museum to visit. Mine shafts, chimneys, railway tracks, remains of ancient villages, sheep and ponies wander around....More

One of those places to tick off your 'I've been there' list, especially if you're into archaeological sites. It's definitely a place to visit when it's dry underfoot - otherwise you could get very muddy. Stunning views though.

We waited to go here when the sun was shining following advice from other reviewers. It was worth it. It’s fascinating. The walk over to cheesewring was a nice walk with stunning views. Took us an hour to walk there, explore the cheesewring and walk...More

We walked from the Cheesewring pub. I didn’t find the stone circles that impressive. They are difficult to see from ground level, and we didn’t even know where they were from the information board as they are hidden. They look better from above in the...More

The Hurlers is a circle of standing stones that represents people that played a game when they should not have. They were then petrified. It does not sound exciting and it is not Stonehenge to look at but it gives a glimpse into history. If...More

pack your walking boots to reach the pinnacle - and experience close up and personal these strange eroded rocks, with their dips and hollows. Walking around the nearby moor also offers fenced off mine shafts. And on a clear day, the view is stupendous.

Perhaps easy to skip but it is worthwhile to go and see. And once on your way: also visit The Cheesewring stones, only 1.5 miles further on
