The cottage is gorgeous! The welcome packet left for us was a nice touch. We absolutely loved the view from the back courtyard. The town was awesome. We would highly recommend staying at Updown Cottage!

Updown is located on the most famous hill in England. It is immaculate, warm, cosy and furnished beautifully. Attention to detail throughout. Well equipped with everything where you would expect to find it. We look forward to visiting Updown again soon.

We visited Updown Cottage for a long weekend. We were a group of four girls and found the house to be wonderfully spacious but at the same time beautifully cosy too. Jane and Simon have quite honestly thought of everything to make the house feel like home from home. The welcome…
