A surprise visit to Uplands House

Review of Uplands House
5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 16 May 2019via mobile
After only calling Uplands House just before leaving with our plane to organize our first night, we were welcomed by Poppy and we felt ourselves immediately at home. We enjoyed her breakfast, especially the yogurt with fresh fruits and the freshly squeezed orange juice. Poppy gave us ideas of all the lovey sites to visit, so we stayed 4 nights including a wonderful dinner.
We highly recommend a stay at Poppy and Graham’s lovely home with their lovely garden.
Date of stay: May 2019

We spent three nights at Uplands House and we had an enjoyable time. The house is full of antiques and objects D’art. Our bedroom was the smallest, Tulip Room, but the bed was very comfortable, everywhere was clean and everything was thought through to the last detail. There was nothing that Poppy would not do to make sure you have a comfortable and enjoyable stay. We enjoyed her company and that of the other guests and had a delicious meal one evening all together. If a comfortable home from home is where you would like to stay whilst touring the beautiful Cotswolds, you would do well to visit Uplands House.

This was our second visit to Uplands House and we were not disappointed! Poppy and Graham are wonderful hosts. The food is fabulous, the gardens (just beginning to bloom) are phenomenal, the rooms are spectacular and the company is friendly, sincere and so welcoming to all their guests. Poppy welcomed us with tea and cakes and helped us plan our visit to the Cotswolds so as not to miss the highlights. We highly recommend that visitors plan for at least 1 four course dinner with Poppy and Graham. They are fabulous hosts and truly enjoy sharing stories and spending time with their guests. It's like visiting with a long lost relative that you will be friends with forever. Poppy is an excellent cook and will tailor your meals to all your favorite dishes. This visit we traveled with our 7 year old son and our 25 year old son. We were provided wonderful rooms on the second floor, each with our own bathrooms. It was a perfect set up for our family. We can't wait to go back!

Sets a very high bar, even by Wolsey Lodges generally excellent standards.

It's a beautiful house very tastefully furnished with period pieces. Poppy's supper and breakfast were delicious.

Our room was delightful with a stunning view over the parkland.

A wonderful welcome from the host Poppy (LadyCooksey) for us both and our small dog. Cake straight from the oven and cracking cups of tea soon after arrival in the drawing room. We were made to feel very much at home in a lovely period house with an open fire and clean comfortable bedrooms. Poppy was so willing to please. An accomplished, amenable sports person the displays of medals were humbling. The dinner served was top notch, all home cooked with much of the ingredients sourced locally or from the house garden served in the dining room with candles and flowers on the table. The wine too was top notch and excellent value; as was the local beer (Hook Norton). Poppy was a most informative, formidable and interesting person with incredible energy to utilise for her guests. The breakfasts (you choose!) were equally good. Given it is winter Poppy was kind enough to provide electric blankets (without us asking) for when the heating is off overnight. The stairlift is great for the less able to make their stay enjoyable.

Quirky house yes perhaps - full of period items - but comfortable,relaxed and well managed.

We felt very much at home as if we were part of her family.

Room tip: All appear very good - just ask Poppy

This was our 4th or 5th stay in the beautiful Chinese bedroom and our first Winter visit. We were welcomed with afternoon tea, taken beside a roaring log fire. Although the weather was cold and frosty, the house was always warm and welcoming. Poppy was her usual affable and cheery self and her 'Winter' dinners were eagerly anticipated and truly delicious.
The house is ideally situated for exploring the delightful local countryside and magnificent NT properties.

Room tip: All rooms have beautiful views over the countryside and due to the location of the house, all are quiet.
