Uplands House

Classic, Cosy and above all hospitable with a capital ‘H’…

Fragrances of lavender, honeysuckle, jasmine, and roses tumbling over golden stone walls, alongside a range of regular avian residents create an air of calm, that instantly relaxes and enchants all guests upon arrival. Uplands House is approached along a drive lined with ancient lime trees, at the end of which await a tasty welcome of tea and homemade cakes, served in the spacious drawing room or weather permitting in the magnificent garden.

Your B&B hosts are quite the cooks, offering splendid four-course dinners or a lighter supper accompanied with wonderful wines. Much of the produce used comes from their own vegetable garden, as does the fruit, everything else is locally sourced.

Choose between the fabulous four poster bedroom with its luxurious en suite bathroom or the Chinese room which can be a double or twin, both of which enjoy a lovely view across the parkland. Alternatively, the smaller but charming double room overlooking the Orangery and Rose Garden.

Whichever you choose, be spoilt by the luxury of fresh flowers, crisp bed linen, lovely bathroom accessories and be assured of a scrumptious breakfast when you wake.

Poppy is the perfect hostess. Nothing is too much trouble for her and we look forward to planning our third stay
