Plan a Great Day Out

A short drive away you'll find King Doniert's Stone, a 9th century remnant of a Christian cross with 'Celtic' markings. Also nearby are the impressive Hurlers Stone Circles, probably the finest examples of late Neolithic or early Bronze Age ceremonial circles in the South West.
