Stunning, fully equipped accommodation in a beautiful location. A truly lovely place for our spring break.
Lots to see and do within a short drive from the property, even when the weather is not sunny including: The Tank Museum at Bovington and Braemore House and Countryside Museum.
We would definitely plan a return visit as a base to explore more of the local area :)
Robert is a very welcoming, warm, friendly and informative host who was happy to answer any questions we had during our stay.
The location of this property is perfect. There is a path beside the property that allows for a pleasant 2-3 hour walk around a small part of the New Forest.
The property exceeded expectations, it's modern (loved the wood burner), quiet, very cosy and snug, extremely spotless/clean and very well looked after!!
I would recommend this holiday rental to anyone looking for a peaceful getaway in the countryside for a weekend or week, We will certainly be returning during the summer.
Thank you Robert!
Superbly located holiday home on edge of Rockbourne village. Food in local Rose and Thistle excellent and well worth the money. Pleasant walk to pub as well, though a bit far if raining. Cottage location ideal for access to surrounding sights including Salisbury and Stonehenge. Even Portsmouth Harbour didn't seem to too far. And then with New Forest walks as well, what's not to like? (There really are a LOT of ponies.)
Any downsides? Not really but note there is only room to park one car at the cottage itself. Also, at least when we visited, there was no walk in shower. Though bathroom facilities are more than adequate and I mention this only to avoid surprise.
All in all, a delightful week and would happily go back.
Robert is a fantastic host and we were met and shown around the house with written instructions for the log burner and for walks out and around the area. Sweetslade was well furnished and decorated to a high standard with all kitchen appliances and amenities for use throughout or weekend stay.
Thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would return back immediately, definitely recommend for every season of the year to all friends and family!
The location was perfect for walking in the new forest and visiting Stonehenge. There is even a footpath next to the cottage that we used for a lovely circular walk.
We felt welcomed by Robert who showed us around the cottage when we arrived. He was friendly and informative. The cottage itself had everything we needed. It was quiet and cosy. It was spotless and modern. We loved the telescope that had been placed in the bedroom window.
You don't expact a barnhouse in the garden from someone but it is really fantastic and quiet with a wonderfull view from the livingroom and bedroom.
The house has every luxurious comforts that you want.
Host very friendly and helpful.
Robert thank you very much.
