Thanks for taking the time out to review Happy New Year
My partner and myself have recently returned from a week long stay at Sweetslade...and what a great week it was!
As others have said, we were greeted warmly by Robert who showed us around the accommodation and talked us through how various bits and pieces worked. He recommended a couple of walks and nice pubs (the Rose and Thistle was particularly lovely!) and he made us feel very welcome. Robert was also a great help when our car ran into a spot of bother and really went above and beyond to help.
The accommodation itself is very nicely designed indeed. The appliances and furnishings are high quality and well maintained. We really couldn't believe it had been operating for three years - it felt so shiny and new that had we been told we were the first people to stay there we would have believed it! The bedroom is large and comfortable with wonderful views and the living space nicely proportioned with sofas that are dangerously comfy. We were only disappointed that it never got cold enough to give the wood burner a go.
The location in Rockbourne is very rural, but it's only a short drive into the New Forest which is where we spent most of our days out. Fordinbridge, the local large village with shops, is lovely for a walk around and has a very handy co-op. While there we ate in the George Inn one afternoon which we would highly recommend.
All in all Sweetslade was a wonderful base camp for exploring the New Forest, but was also such a lovely property that we really enjoyed our quiet cosy evenings indoors.
We really do hope to return soon and will be recommending.
Thanks for taking the time out to do such a comprehensive review, look forward to seeing you again soon. The chocolates went down a treat !
As we arrived we were greeted by the owner who was very warm and welcoming. It was a very cosy, clean and stylish cottage which had modern furnishings and facilities which were great! The bedroom was very nice with great views and a comfy bed too. There were a number of walks around the cottage too which were very nice and it wasn't too far away from the new forest either! Would definitely come back, wish we had stayed longer.
Thanks for taking time out to review very pleased that you enjoyed your stay.
I defy anyone not to love Sweetslade. It is warm, clean, comfortable and excellently appointed with quality furnishings and appliances.
We spent a week here and found it a good base for exploring the New Forest, visiting the Isle of Wight and the Dorset coast.
Bird-watching from the large living-room window over breakfast was an added delight.
I would definitely recommend this charming holiday property.
Thanks for taking the time out to review, hope to see you both again soon.
Comfortable and full of character, whatever the weather. Well equipped and in a beautiful location.
The perfect escape from reality.
Very pleased you enjoyed this alternative reality
Had a lovely long weekend, the barn was lovely, had everything you needed and more. So peaceful and great for a weekend of relaxation. Would definitely recommend to friends and we will return.
Thanks for taking the time out to review, very pleased you had a relaxing time look forward to your return.
