We had a wonderful stay to celebrate a special wedding anniversary. Dinner was excellent and Poppy even brought out the Champagne in our honour. Worth visiting in the summer as the rose garden is stunning. Make time to visit Upton House and especially the mirror pool.

We have just had a delightful stay at Uplands House. From our tea and lemon cake over looking the lovely garden when we arrived to the delicious dinner ( Poppy gave me the recipe) to our very comfortable room and bed and finally breakfast we thoroughly enjoyed it all. Poppy is a most generous host and we will certainly be... More

We stayed with Poppy at Uplands House recently and would whole-heartedly recommend it. Poppy made myself and my family (including our 7 month old baby) feel immediately welcome, relaxed and at home, like visiting old friends rather than a place we'd never been before. We had a lovely drink in the pretty garden on arrival and a wonderful dinner prepared... More

Stayed here on Saturday night, in the Chinese room. The bed was massive and very comfortable, so peaceful at night and lovely to wake up and look out the window to the cows in the field. Poppy was very friendly and we had afternoon tea in the beautiful garden, with lovely homemade lemon cake straight from the oven!! This was... More

A chance booking made over the internet from Australia, but what a find! A lovely large house situated in unspoilt countryside, complete with a colourful and well tended garden where afternoon tea could be taken. On arrival, we were told that the bedroom we had chosen was unavailable (it was the smallest and cheapest) and were thus given an upgrade... More

My husband and I spent two memorable days at the beautiful home of Lady Poppy Cooksey in May of this year. We were celebrating our 50th wedding anniversary and as we had spent that first year of our marriage in Oxford where my husband had a fellowship for postdoctoral research we chose to come back to the area that inspired...

Uplands House is a delightful house run by the owner Poppy. Poppy makes you feel at home as soon as you arrive. The beds were so comfortable, the bed linen so fresh, lovely pillows, lots of little home comforts and an amazing view. off the beaten track but worth it for the tranquillity. Poppy has the most beautiful garden and... More

I stayed here for three nights while exploring the local area. The house is in a secluded, quiet area, with a lovely garden to enjoy. On my arrival, I was served tea and lovely homemade cake in the beautiful sitting room, while Poppy discussed plans for dinner to take into account dietary requirements (she did this daily). The dinners were... More
