“A Sweet Retreat”
Reviewed 18 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

I defy anyone not to love Sweetslade. It is warm, clean, comfortable and excellently appointed with quality furnishings and appliances.
We spent a week here and found it a good base for exploring the New Forest, visiting the Isle of Wight and the Dorset coast.
Bird-watching from the large living-room window over breakfast was an added delight.
I would definitely recommend this charming holiday property.

“Home from Home”
Reviewed 6 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Rockbourne Holiday cottage was everything it 'said on the tin' and more. The cottage was fully equipped and very comfortable. Numerous walks from the door/nearby Fordingbridge with good food in pubs/restaurants en route. We thoroughly enjoyed our week in this area and would love to return.

“Fantastic & relaxing holiday in an ideal location.”
Reviewed 17 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Stayed here for 4 nights during July with my Fiancee for a short break. The cottage is located in a very nice area and is extremely well maintained with a very modern interior & with everything you may need available to you.

The cottage is in an ideal location for exploring the New Forest surrounding either on foot, by bike or by car. We spent one of the evenings going on the 4 mile walk that the owner had pointed out to us - beware of the overgrown paths!!!! something that was supposed to take 1.5hrs ended up taking 4! - but it definitely made it more enjoyable and was very amusing!

Would definitely recommend this to anyone wanting a short/long break in a lovely relaxing setting. We will definitely be returning.
