Upton Cross is a small Cornish village originally housing miners but now a quiet retreat set in rolling countryside on the edge of Bodmin Moor. From here there is easy access to some of Bodmin Moor’s most striking features, including the Cheesewrings, Sharp Tor and the engine houses at Minions, as well as Kitt Hill and Caradon Hill. The village has a traditional 17th century pub serving good food, a Post Office and general store. Both coasts are within easy reach, from the crashing surf of the north coast to the clear waters and fishing villages of the south. Siblyback Lake, 6 miles away, offers angling and water sports, and there is salmon and trout fishing available on local rivers. Upton Cross has its own open air theatre offering a varied programmed through the season. A village in the heart of Cornwall, ideal for getting away from it all.

Previous visitors' comments about Foxgloves :
The cottage was a good size with two super log burners. Extra heaters were supplied in all the rooms so we were very warm and comfortable. The location was lovely and very quiet with a pretty garden and lovely stream running past. It was a convenient location for various walks and travelling in all directions to different attractions. The outside tap was very useful for washing off wellies and the dog after muddy walks.

The place was in a wonderful setting, the owners were very welcoming and helpful. It was the sort of place you walk into and feel at home.

Very friendly family on hand for advice regards local fishing spots. Beautiful old cottage, spotless on arrival - the table set for a welcoming afternoon tea with home-made sponge cake! Peaceful end of valley setting with log burning stoves. A very relaxing holiday, thank you.
