"Poppy is the most charming hostess you could ever wish to meet. She treated us as if we were family. Her home is beautiful, conversation enthralling and her cuisine exquisite. Many, many thanks for your hospitality, we will be back."
"A very pampering relaxing stay in a fabulous location with great hosts. Gorgeous food, toffee cake was delicious. It felt like we were on holiday. Arrived in business mode but left totally unwound. All the little touches were greatly appreciated. You have created a wonderful atmosphere."
"What a magnificent retreat into the Cotswolds this is! The warmth, the beauty, the comforts (bedding that wraps itself round you and makes you feel loved,) the food, the fine wines are all beyond comparison."
"Oh what joy to drop in on "friends" for the weekend. I can honestly say I have never stayed anywhere where I have been treated as one of the family from the word go. Thank you both so much for a wonderful respite from noisy engines! And not forgetting the Polish connection."
"Our New Year’s eve at Uplands was memorable, the hospitality that flowed through the evening was fantastic and the impromptu dinner party was a great success and so very enjoyable. Your thoughtfulness makes everyone feel special."
"Had a wonderful time here at Uplands with Poppy and Graham. The lovely welcoming sight and aromas of the kitchen and the Chinese screen as you walk into the hall, the flowing wine and champagne, the making of the runny chocolate pudding together and its consumption, and of course the delightful company made my first New Year away from home an unforgettable experience."
"Hooray! At last I have found the perfect watering hole! It was a pleasure to stay with you, and thank you for the most excellent dinner."
