Beautiful house

  • 5 of 5

The house and location are absolutely beautiful, our group of 8 adults and 1 child were all impressed by the size of the building and garden/decking areas which are an absolute sun trap.

It does really need another bathroom adding, just 2 between a large group does cause a bottleneck at times but apart from that we really enjoyed our stay.

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

Enjoyable wet and windy New Year

  • 4 of 5

Cottage was warm and clean with newish kitchen and bath/shower rooms. Also very comfortable beds with lovely duvets. We were a party of 8 but if there had been 10 of us we felt that there needed to be 2 more dining chairs, more crockery especially bowls/serving dishes and another bathroom would have been good particularly for people staying longer than 3 nights.

The weather was wet and windy but there was ample space for drying our wet clothes.

Cottage was well positioned for going to the coast and to riverside villages.

Owner's Response: Hi. Thanks for the feedback. We will arrange a couple of additional chairs for the dining long table (there are additional seats under the stairs). And we will add in some additional crockery, we may of had a few breakages from previous visitors. Glad you had a good trip. If you wish to return we offer a 10 discount for all repeat visits. Happy new year. Kind regards Ian.

Great property with stunning views

Had a great week with large family. House is very spacious and kids have enough room to play. Fantastic beach within 10 minute drive. Great for surfing and other water sports. Views from the house have a relaxing effect and lots to do for the whole family around the area.
