    “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...

About the location

UPTON CROSS

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.
