Travelling alone, unusual in retirement, I found Uplands House very easily from instructions and was immediately captivated by the warmth of Poppy's welcome, the sybaritic comfort of my room and the tranquility of the setting. Dinner, alfresco as an additional bonus in our quixotic climate, was truly outstanding, as was breakfast the next morning. It was clear that meticulous attention was paid to sourcing the very best ingredients and assembling them with Poppy's wonderful flair. I enjoyed every mouthful. The company was congenial, helped along with unobtrusive prompting by the hosts who found time to join in the conversations. A memorable experience throughout and one which I intend to repeat, with my wife, as soon as a special occasion permits.
