Reviews-image2-edited“Your house is one of the most amazing I have ever seen, it is set in such a lovely place. It was truly magical to spend the night here and celebrate Joe and Isla’s big day. It was truly the ‘wedding of the year’.”

Upwey House is truly a hidden gem and sparkles in so many ways. Our stay there was a three-generation family get-together with participants ranging from a two year old to the near eighties. The house and grounds have so much to offer to all ages that there was never a dull moment. As an added bonus, there were sparrow hawks nesting just tens of metres in front of the house!

The children thought they were in Wonderland both inside the house and in the grounds (the forest, the stream, the fields, plus the football pitch). The parents also thought they were in Wonderland in the kitchen which offers everything the budding chef could hope for! All the rooms are consistent with “tasteful charm”, giving a tangible feeling of tranquillity and calm. Its elevated location provides extensive views over the nearby countryside, virtually to the sea. It also enjoys a very private position, adding to its peacefulness.

If our experience is anything to go by, the owners pay especial attention to each of their guests to ensure that their stay is comfortable and memorable. We very much appreciated what they did for us. They were exceptionally responsive, we usually heard back from them within a few hours at most.  Likewise, the housekeeper was similarly attentive and did everything to put us at our ease on arrival and through our stay.

Whilst our visit was as a family holiday, the venue offers the perfect spot, elegance and facilities for any special event or anniversary.

“From the moment we drove up we knew Upwey house would be an amazing place to stay for our family holiday. We had a fantastic week. Plenty to do for everyone from 3 months to 87 years old. We thoroughly recommend and will be back”.

“Upwey House is absolutely fantastic! We have had a wonderful summer holiday. We enjoyed exploring Dorset but also enjoyed staying at home, sunbathing on the terrace, exploring the wonderful grounds, playing football, swingball and cricket with the children! What a wonderful house!”
