  • "We were made extremely welcome and enjoyed having the owners nearby."

    Fantastic views from the cottage and we enjoyed waking up to the loud birdsong in the mornings. Having the moor right on our doorstep was wonderful and enjoyed walking our dog there everyday. The cottage was very comfortable and spacious but there were a few things missing that would have been very helpful especially in the kitchen. No scissors or information on how to use the appliances also to have information on the local history and places to visit. It was okay for us it was our 3rd visit to the moors but for someones 1st visit a bit more info on where to go and on the Cheesewring itself could be beneficial for future visitors. But we will be returning it was a great holiday.

  • "I can recommend this property for anyone wanting peace, quiet and comfort."

    The views are spectacular and the cottage was very very clean and very very comfortable. An unexpected bonus was the dog paddock, as with livestock on the moorland, it allowed us to give our boy a good free run most days. I have put Cheesewring Farm on my return to list....there was nothing not to like...Thank you to our hosts for sharing their property with us...

  • "Had a lovely 2 week stay at Mums Cottage."

    The cottage was very clean and comfortable. There was a cream tea, milk and eggs on arrival and we received this again at the beginning of the second week. The owners were lovely and friendly. The property has amazing views and access to the Moor for some great walks. Will definitely stay here again.

  • "A lovely comfortable cottage in a beautiful location."

    The owners are very friendly and helpful, and the eggs, scones with jam and cream, plus the Doggie welcome pack was a lovely touch. It is very quiet and tranquil and we enjoyed a very relaxing week at Mum’s cottage. Would highly recommend it.

  • "We had a lovely week in Mums Cottage at Cheesewring Farm, the views are stunning & the hosts are very welcoming."

    I would definitely recommend a stay here. Cheesewring stones are worth the climb (easier path via the Hurlers stones car park) the Hurlers are worth a visit. Seaton beach & Looe harbour are a short drive away on the south coast and you have Port Issac & Gaverne, Bude & Tintagel to the north & only 45 mins from Ilfracombe,Devon.

  • "The week at mums cottage was one of the most stress free weeks we have had in a long time."

    We can't praise it highly enough, comfortable beds for sleeping and a homely lounge to relax and unwind after a day out. Bathroom was as good as you would find in a 5* hotel. Kitchen was well set up and then the view either from the lounge or out in the garden was spectacular. 1 week wasn't long enough to see and do everything on our wishlist so we're just going to have to come back

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.
