The Central Southern England region

Stonehenge is 20 miles to the north. The beautiful georgian town of Bath is just 50 minutes by train from Salisbury, and the cities of Bournemouth, Southampton & Portsmouth's maritine heritage museums are less than an hours drive. It is a wonderful area with diverse & interesting range of activities to suit all tastes, a mild climate & beautiful scenery.
The village street in Rockbourne is claimed to be one of the prettiest in Hampshire. The gently winding street in this peaceful village is tucked in rolling downland and is lined with Tudor and Georgian houses and splendid thatched and timber-framed cottages. The oldest homestead is the Roman Villa discovered by a farmer in 1942 and excavated in 1956 revealing mosaic floors and a most interesting Roman villa complex. Rockbourne and the nearby Whitsbury both have good pubs. The Rose& Thistle in Rockbourne is a thatched 17th century with an unspoilt cosy interior. Expect a relaxing atmosphere and quality eating.
The New Forest National Park is around a 10 minute drive away, with wonderful scenery, abundant wildlife, deer & wild ponies, and many opportunties for walking, cycling, horse riding and even kayaking & sailing.

Thanks for the review I must get to work on some more instructions for the appliances. Sorry about not putting in a walk in shower but I was concerned about leaks on the first floor and I must confess that I prefer a soak in the bath.Although I realise some prefer to shower unfortunately I couldn't fit them both in.However I'm pleased to see you plan on a return visit.

"Perfect countryside getaway"
We recently stayed for a long weekend at Sweetslade and were greeted very warmly on arrival. The barn was spotlessly clean and is extremely well equipped - it is clear that a lot of thought has gone into providing absolutely everything you could want. The kitchen facilities are excellent and there are lots of things to do eg lovefilm, books etc. Comfy bed, lovely bath. Feels really spacious yet really cosy at the same time. Thoroughly recommended.
Thanks for the great review its always uplifting to know that you enjoyed your stay.
