Beautiful renovation completed to the highest standard, in a lovely bit of the world.
We were met by a very welcoming and friendly owner who made us feel at home upon arrival, but left us to have our own space from there onwards. Prepared for guests was a terrific compendium detailing everything on offer in the area, from local eateries to country walks and OS maps.
The location is just far enough off the beaten track to experience a slice of tranquility, and a stone's throw from the beach, but still easy to find.
Would love to stay again and take some friends with us!

“A truely fantastic barn and great location”
Reviewed 24 October 2016 for a stay in October 2016

Stayed here with family and 4 dogs and had a fantastic time. The barn is beautifully converted with a good kitchen and seating area, and 3 lovely en suite bedrooms. Everything you could need is here from a TV, wifi, radios in the bedrooms, toiletries, maps loads of local info and even a cold Prosecco in the fridge! One of the best things if you have dogs is that you have a fenced garden and patio area.
Loads of walks and an empty beach 5mins away. All the local pubs are dog friendly which makes life very easy. Cannot recommend highly enough! Martin the owner was extremely helpful and although we didn't need him for anything we knew if we did he'd be there!

“Perfect”
Reviewed 12 October 2016 for a stay in October 2016

We wanted a few days away with our dogs, and couldn't have chosen a better loacation. Coastal walks right on your doorstep. The accommodation was beautiful, high spec, and the owners had thought of everything. There were some lovely touches, fresh bread, jam, waffles, milk and prosecco in the fridge with a personalised manual giving you all the information you could wish for. Martin was always on hand if you had any questions, we were made to feel very welcome and didn't want to leave. A perfect place in a perfect accommodation

“Fantastic cottage”
Reviewed 6 October 2016 for a stay in September 2016

My husband, our toddler and 3 other friends stayed here for 3 nights for a wedding at the nearby Oxwich Bay Hotel. The cottage is absolutely stunning and in a gorgeous location with views out over the bay. It's well appointed and the rooms were very comfortable.
Communication from the owner was great in the run up to our visit and they were very helpful during our stay. We wanted to stay longer as we were having such a good time.

“Beautifully converted buildings and thoughtful hosts, close to the best coastline in Wales”
Reviewed 28 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We have stayed at Slade Barn three times in the summer holidays. The location is a short walk from The Sands, a 30 minute walk on footpaths to Horton or a short drive to Oxwich. There are three generously sized bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms, each constructed with fine materials. The furnishing is mainly oak, complementing the exposed beams of the original cow sheds. The barn is on three levels. The kitchen is well fitted out with accessories and there is a washer and tumble dryer too. The hosts are lovely - they keep in regular contact from the booking onwards and offer comprehensive guidance on the best places to visit and to eat. Highly recommended.
