My sister, mother and I had the absolute pleasure of staying here 4 nights from July 21. Poppy our host was a true gem, treated us like royalty and nothing was too much trouble. Food was amazing, fresh and delicious. The bedrooms were stunning and well stocked with beautiful personal products. Met great guests staying. All in all our favourite... More

We received a very warm welcome the moment we arrived for a week's holiday. Poppy's home cooked food was wonderful. Jam came from fruit grown in the beautiful garden, which is resplendent with vivid contrasts of colour. Poppy and Graham's knowledge of the area was invaluable when planning trips around the Cotswolds; enriched by Poppy's famous hand drawn maps. We... More

We chose to visit the Cotswolds to explore more of its rich countryside, attractive towns and villages, fine gardens and stately homes, all of which we knew would be within easy reach of Uplands House. From the time of our arrival there until our departure five days later we were treated to the most thoughtful and generous hospitality from Poppy... More

We certainly recommend to any one wanting to experience a perfect country setting, Poppy is a delight, and the morning breakfast chats we had with her on any subject and suggesting places to visit were great. We loved the gardens and quiet surrounds and would visit again in the future.

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...
