Helman Tor

In central Cornwall there are plenty of peaceful beauty spots a little less known, one I love is Helman Tor. So wonderfully quiet and on a clear day you can see for miles, both coasts if you are lucky! Finding it is always a bit of a mission, Visit Cornwall have directions you can check out. With massive slabs of granite, and a logan stones (teetering on the edge) it's a place ideal for clambering over with the kids, or to just relax and watch the sun set. At the foot of the tor there is a large wetland and with grazing animals gathering around bodies of water. The landscape comprises of heathland, acid grassland with willow and oak trees down below. You can see the weather rolling across the hills with birds of prey soaring in the sky above. The rocks seem to defy gravity and provide sheltered nooks to sit and admire an impressive view.
