Exploring the Megaliths of Ancient Cornwall

Monday, Nov 6, 2017

Ancient and medieval man has left his mark right across Cornwall. Stone circles, burial chambers, hill forts and standing stones dating back thousands of years offer an exciting insight into the mysterious world of historic Cornwall.

Wonder at the rituals that may have prompted the challenging creation of these diverse monuments. What stories do the stones tell us of Cornwall’s rich and enduring heritage?

From Port Isaac it is an easy journey to visit the stone circles of Bodmin Moor or the inscribed stones of south west Cornwall. What is the meaning of the eerie Men-An-Tol near St Just?

Port Isaac, the St Endellion Inscribed stone, an early Christian monument, has recently been returned to its original site. Although rare nationally, Cornwall boasts 37 inscribed stones.

Our luxury, self-catering accommodation in Port Isaac is the perfect base for exploring the enigmatic ancient sites of west Cornwall.
