“The best UK cottage we have ever stayed in”
Reviewed 28 August 2012 for a stay in August 2012

Slade Barn is a wonderful converted barn. The facilities and decor are excellent and Martin the owner gave us a great welcome. The accommodation is lovely with wonderful little touches such as top quality bath products so you really feel as though you are in a boutique hotel. The barn itself is walking distance to a stunning remote beach which never gets crowded. We were mostly lucky with the weather but on the colder wetter days it was very cosy. The open plan living area worked very well, and outside the garden and deck are complete sun traps. We have stayed in lots of mediocre cottages in the UK over the years and had begun to think that it would be impossible to find something a bit more contemporary. Thanks for a great holiday

“A perfect escape to the countryside & beaches”
Reviewed 11 June 2012 for a stay in May 2012

A fantastic barn conversion. Perfect for dogs as lovely heated stone floors mean no worrying about carpets getting sandy/dirty/damp! Very remote, but beaches close by are beautiful. Lovely walks from the barn, weather wasn't brilliant, so nice to return to a warm home. Garden enclosed for dogs.

“AMAZING PLACE TO STAY”

What a fabulous aazing place to stay.
Stayed here for a long weekend with my husband and my parents and we all just loved the barn.
Martin has completed a superb job on the converstion with the finishing touches all to a very high standard.
Gower is a beautiful untouched area and yes this barn may be down a long windy road but if you want to get away from it all this is the place for you.
It is just a 10 min walk from the barn to a beautiful almost private beach and just a little further to Oxwich bay.
As a faimily we all like the nice things in life and I can truly say this ticks all the boxes.
Only problem was that we were only there 3 nights !
Martin the owner is also a most charming man who made the booking so very easy and relaxed. Always got back when he said he would by e-mail or phone. Pick up of keys was also nice and easy.
