  • "We thoroughly enjoyed our week at Bickle Bice cottage during the Easter holidays."

    The owners were very helpful and accommodating given that we booked last minute. It is set in beautiful remote surroundings and our children loved running around the farm and local area. Thank you for a wonderful stay!

  • "Bickle Bice is a lovely cottage in a stunning location."

    We loved it! It was cosy and we had everything we needed. The directions provided were excellent and you are a 5 minute drive from a village with a shop and tea rooms but the cottage itself is surrounded by moor.

  • "We loved Bickle Bice Cottage."

    Stunning views and access direct to the Moor. We had a lovely welcome gift for us and our dog. Would recommend.

  • "Lyn and Rebecca went above and beyond for us during our stay at Bickle Bice."

    We had a less than perfect start to our holiday, thanks to car trouble, but their kindness and help more than compensated for it. We still cannot believe how lucky we were to have met them as part of our holiday. John was a lovely friend to our 6 yr old, who doesn’t normally warm to strangers, and made his stay full of wonder and excitement. Now onto the actual cottage review! The cottage is set on an idyllic farm, complete with the best views you could wish for. The facilities are outstanding and thoughtfully provided, and made for a real home away from home, albeit with better scenery! A delicious cream tea awaited us in the fridge, and a little goody bag for our dogs was most welcome. The beds were comfortable and cosy, the kitchen was well equipped and a good size for a family of five, and the living room had amazing views. We loved every moment of our stay, and will definitely be returning as soon as we can. Thank you again to the wonderful family who made our stay so special.

  • "Excellent all round."

    Lovely clean property and a very tidy farmyard in a lovely setting. Owners very friendly and welcoming and the cottage was equipped with everything you needed. The scones and eggs were a lovely welcome present, and even the Dogs had a goody bag left for them too Play area for the kids, and a excellent dog walking paddock free to use. I would definitely recommend this property.

  • "Lovely place and location - we had a wonderful stay for the long Coronation weekend in May."

    Discovered a lot of new lovely places in the area! Communication was smooth and easy. Thank you for a lovely break in your cottage!

  • "John and Lynn are wonderful hosts and like the native Cornish people they are very warm and welcoming."

    Bickle Bice Cottage has breathtaking valley views and the common facilities have a good children's play area too. We were delighted to be welcomed with a Cornish Cream tea and some farm eggs. Do not forget to purchase their jumbo Hen and Duck eggs. The beds are so comfortable that we requested for a longer sleeping in time on our check-out day, and they most welcomingly agreed. The only short coming was an intermittently weak WIFi as our mobile network was not strong for mobile data and we wanted to stream some live games. But an tv detox is sometimes good during such trips :)

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.
