From the moment we arrived we were treated like one of the family, which I know a lot of other people have said in their reviews, but it's true!
Tea and homemade cake as soon as we arrived, and a run down of that night's dinner menu to make sure everything was to our liking. We were then shown around the house and to our rooms which were lovely, and what spectacular views, a really secluded spot, yet so close to everything you would want from the Cotswolds. The house is beautiful and the garden was in full bloom. We were invited to have a browse through the vegetable patch too which we did.
Dinner was served around one large table (you could choose to dine alone if preferred) and we got to know the other guests (a couple from Belgium and a couple from Philadelphia). Our hosts Poppy and Graham dined with us too, which was lovely as they could give us tips and guidance for our stay, and it was lovely getting to know everyone else. A much better idea than dining at seperate tables, which now seems so anti-social after this experience!
Poppy couldn't do enough for us, even providing sun cream when we experienced a bit of unexpectedly good weather!!
We would happily recommend Uplands House to anyone and would not even consider staying anywhere else next time we visit the area, which we definitely will.
