Uplands House is the perfect combination of location, comfort and hospitality. Situated in the rolling farmland of Warwickshire near Stratford-Upon-Avon and an easy trip to Oxford, Uplands House is a great stay in peaceful serenity.

We chose Uplands House for our base while visiting the Cotswolds and were very pleasantly charmed by our hosts, Poppy and Graham. Their warm and gracious welcome, hospitality and regal treatment toward us while guests in their impressive country manor home set the tone for a rewarding and memorable visit. They were wonderful hosts who truly enjoy meeting and getting... More

We have just spent two wonderful nights at Uplands House. Everything we could have wished for was ours to enjoy. Poppy and Graham made us so happy to be there and to meet their other guests. We really appreciated the beautiful house and garden, very comfortable bed and room (The Tulip Room), fine linens, a blackout blind hidden behind tulip-patterned... More

Five of us very much enjoyed our stay at Uplands house last weekend which is a beautifully furnished and relaxing place to visit. Poppy, our hostess, was most welcoming and ensured we were well looked after. Poppy is an excellent cook and provided a delicious breakfast accompanied by lovely homemade jams and marmalades. We were celebrating a birthday and in... More

Greeted as if a long lost favourite nephew; shown the improvements to the garden since you last visited many years ago; perfect lemon drizzle cake and a cup of tea in the rose garden - and this is what makes Poppy and Uplands House so special. I have to admit being surprised to read in earlier reviews that some guests... More

I enjoyed one night at Uplands House last week whilst on a business trip. Poppy and Graham are an excellent team. Their attention to detail is better than any other B&B I have stayed at – the flowers around the house are beautiful, as is the garden – not normally features I would notice! The evening meal was excellent –... More

Had a two night stay at this quiet country house with beautiful gardens, Poppy is a very attentive host and made us feel very welcome. We stayed in the Tulip room which was bright, airy and comfortable. We had dinner on the first night and were joined by fellow guests from America and Poppy, which made for an interesting and...

Poppy and Graham are outstanding hosts. The rooms are extremely comfortable and the breakfast is very good. The dinners were superb with a very good selection of wines. The country house provides a great base for a visit to the region.

What a delightful experience this was, just a pity we were only booked in for one night. On arrival at this mid-19th century house , located opposite the NT property Upton House, we were met , shown our room with an invitation to afternoon tea in the garden at 5pm, this was tea and home made cake with a chance...
