  • "Wonderful place in the heart of Cornwall."

    The cottage has everything you need, and a lovely cream tea, milk and eggs to greet you. The dog had a great time as plenty of walks all around and the views are amazing. If you want peace and quiet this is the perfect place.

  • "Super cottage and location."

    The most amazing views from the property. Very dog friendly, with a choice of safe areas for our pet to exercise within reach of the property . Also a lovely dog treat bag on arrival. Our only criticism of the contents of the cottage was that the sofa was not very comfortable.

  • "The cottage was very warm & cosy with a beautiful outlook."

    The area was very quiet which is just want we needed. A dog field where we could let them off the lead and across the field directly onto the moor. The only reason we didn’t give a 10 was that we found the sofa uncomfortable and mentioned this in the visitors book. Also a suggestion for a clothes airer for all the wet dogs towels. We will hopefully visit again.

  • "Fantastic location, private and secluded with amazing views."

    The cottage had everything that we wanted, included secure garden for our two dogs, and everything worked as it should. Beautiful cottage would certainly return if we wanted to visit Cornwall again, thank you.

  • "Beautiful cottage."

    Quiet and set in beautiful countryside. The cottage had absolutely everything you could imagine you might need! The delicious cream tea left in the fridge was very welcome after the drive. John is a fount of local knowledge and you should try the Tea Rooms at the Minions local store!

  • "Washing machine unecessary for two people for a week."

    Facilities to dry wet clothes ( it rains a lot onBodminmoor) and towels e.g. tumble drier or drying rack would be much more useful in limited space We carried towels with us as the advertisement did not say they were provided, when Infact they were. Guests should be aware that wi-fi and TV signals are very poor in this area Instruction books were provided but hidden away under cutlery tray which was not the best place for them!

    Thankyou for your comments. All our cottages have washer/dryer machines so wet/dirty clothes can be laundered if required; guests staying longer than a week find this particularly useful! As stated in the property description, towels are provided. Apologies if you didn't see this or find the instruction manuals for appliances. As we are located in such a beautiful rural location, upgrading technology to modern standards has been somewhat of a challenge, however we are excited to announce the installation of a new satellite system which will effect faster wi-fi speeds.

  • "We‘ve had two wonderful weeks at Fizz Gog Cottage with our two dogs."

    Everything was clean and we didn‘t miss anything. In front of our cottage were the sheeps and a lovely view in the valley. We did only have to open a fence to be in the moor, where we could do long walks in a fascinating nature meeting sheeps, cows and horses. It took us about 30 -45 minutes by car either to the north or south coast to be at the sea. Thank you to the owners of the cottage for always being so friendly. We enjoyed our stay at Minions a lot.

    The views and location was amazing. The cottage had everything you needed and the owners checked everything was ok during our stay. Our dog even had a welcome bag. We will definitely return.

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.
