“First Class accomodation with easy access to New Forest and more.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2013 for a stay in September 2013

We stayed at Sweetslade for a short break from 15th Sept to 18th Sept. This is a really lovely and well thought out holiday let. The accommodation was first class in a peaceful part of Hampshire. The views from the bedroom still live with us. and The location is great and ideal for the New Forest, coastal towns and north to Salisbury. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a getaway break and hope to revisit in the future. Thank you Robert for all your help and supplying such a great place to stay. Shame the gods were not a little kinder with the sun.

“Wonderful place to stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2013 for a stay in September 2013

My husband and I returned today from Sweetslade. We spent a week there and were not at all disappointed with the accommodation. The fixtures and fittings are all of a very high standard and we were extremely comfortable. It is set in a very peaceful location and in no time at all you can be in the New Forest enjoying all it and the surrounding area has to offer. We were told the local pub , The Rose and Thistle, serve excellent food, however, we were unable to eat there as it was fully booked, so book early! We did however, eat at the Bat and Ball in Breamore, which had a good atmosphere and dished up very good food, excellently presented. If we decide to go to this area again we would not hesitate to stay at this property and would certainly recommend it to friends.

“Lovely place to stay!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

Me and my partner stayed here for two nights and absolutely loved it! We were welcomed as soon as we pulled up the drive and given a key and shown around with everything explained to us. It felt very clean and well looked after. The host was very helpful in giving us all the information we wanted and provided leaflets and postcodes to favourite places. I would definitely recommend sweetslade to friends and family.

“Spacious and peaceful - would definitely return!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2013 for a stay in July 2013

We stayed in Sweetslade for three nights, and would definitely go back! The location is lovely, the house looks out over fields and is right in the middle of the countryside, which makes it very peaceful. Coming from London, it was so lovely to just hear birdsong rather than traffic! The house is only a short drive to the nearest town and right on the edge of the New Forest, so couldn't ask for a better location.

The house itself is really light and airy, and the huge windows look right out over the fields. We stayed just at the beginning of the summer heatwave, and though the house was cool, the fan provided was useful! Robert had lots of leaflets of things to do in the area, and it was good to find out that the nearest bike hire centre was only 20 min drive away - ideal if you want to explore the New Forest! Everything felt very new and clean, and we would have loved to have stayed longer. It's a great find, and I highly recommend it.

“Lovely accommodation in great location.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2013 for a stay in July 2013

Having spent a great weekend at Sweetslade, I would recommend it! It is beautifully clean and very well looked after. It's in a great spot with all you need just a few minutes drive away (pub, shops etc). Lovely walks and cycle routes and would certainly recommend the Rose & Thistle pub in the very pretty village of Rockbourne which is very close by. Many thanks Robert, I'm already looking forward to our return!

Couldn't have asked for any more, this barn is light, airy, and very modern, absolutely spotless, great Wifi, Tv, DVD, the view is amazing, the location is fab just about 7 mins by car to the next village where there are plenty of shops for food, drink etc..

The owner was very pleasant and helpful, we would 100% recommend this for anyone looking to just get away from it and get some fresh air and relax..
