Walking

We are situated in an ideal spot for walkers, being on the edge of Bodmin Moor and there
are many public footpaths around locally. We are very close to Minions where you can walk around disused engine houses and quarries.  There is also a museum dedicated to the mining history.  Here you can find the Hurlers Stone circle and legend has it, it is difficult to count the number of the Hurlers at Minions, but should you do so correctly, a misfortune will befall you!!  The Cheesewring quarry produced blue-grey granite. The railway at the Cheesewring Quarry opened in 1844 and was used to transport granite to Liskeard and Looe for export, the old track is still visible in areas.
The Cheesewring itself is a spectacular series of flat boulders over thirty feet round set on top of a number of smaller stones. It is a natural formation of balancing rocks, believed to have been formed by glaciation and erosion over thousands of years. The name comes from its shape. 

 

Cycling

Bikes can be hired from Trevallick's Farm Shop & Tea room and you can explore the local sites of Bodmin Moor and the surrounding area. www.cornishcyclehire.co.uk  Top quality Adult and children cycles are available as well as their Brand New Electric cycles !!  They will also drop the bikes to the Glamp site!!


Beaches

Upton Cross is positioned halfway between the two beautiful Cornish Coastlines. The famous fishing port of Looe is on the South Cornish coast and is approximately 14 miles away whilst other coastal beauty spots such as Polperro and Fowey are all within easy access. The North Coast is approximately 30 miles which is excellent for surfing etc.
