A lovely Easter at Slade cottage

5 of 5
We had a lovely week over Easter at slade cottage. The description is as it looks, there were a few things we would change. We would put a shower curtain and make the shower higher in the upstairs bathroom. Add a few utensils & crockery as we didn’t feel there was enough. But other than that. It is a great house & we would def stay there again. Thank you

Beautiful house

5 of 5
We booked this house for a family weekend away for my dads 70th birthday. It was fantastic! The cream tea was a lovely welcome and great start to our break. The house is beautiful and very well equipped, everything has been thought of, even down to the last detail. We had an age range of 8 weeks to 70 years old and we all enjoyed it greatly. We would definitely recommend this property and look forward to coming back in the future.
