We booked the cottage for Valentines' weekend and couldn't have picked anywhere better. It's in a pretty village, with gorgeous views and the place itself is obviously really well looked after: clean, cosy, and well-decorated. There was a power cut on the night we arrived due to the horrible storms bringing a tree down on a power line, and the owner was over almost immediately with candles and a torch - we felt really looked after and were so grateful. Even in the pitch black the cottage was warm and comfortable! Power was back on the next day and we were so glad we didn't have to go home.

Not a single bad word to say but lots of good ones: lovely owner, lovely village, lovely cottage, lovely walks, and a lovely meal at the Rose and Thistle down the road. We were only there a weekend but left in such a good mood it felt like we'd been away for weeks. We will be back!

Pleased to hear that the storm didn't ruin your enjoyment, still the candles did seem appropriate for valentines day.

We had a superb weekend break staying at sweetslade. A really homely feel, extremely clean and tidy, and extremely warm with the log burner!
Lots of local pubs serving fantastic food and lots of walks to go on. Really looking forward to coming back in summer.
Thanks!!!

Nothing quite like a woodburning stove to banish the winter chill! So pleased you had enjoyable weekend break.
