  • "Myself and my partner stayed here during April."

    We found the cottage and surrounding areas absolutely beautiful! There were a few things that affected our stay. We found the oven kept turning off every 10 minutes and when running a bath the hot water ran out before it was full. When arriving to the property we were asked not to use the bath straight away as work had been done in the bathroom. This wasn’t an issue as we had no plans but could’ve been a problem if we had planned to go out. Overall we had an amazing stay and the hosts were very helpful if any issues arose.

About the location


Liskeard 6 miles; Tavistock 15 miles.

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 and a Post Office. 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.
