The Hampshire region
Situated on the borders of Hampshire, Dorset and Wiltshire, Sweetslade is ideally placed to explore the wide central southern region The south coast is around 30 minutes drive with wonderful beaches at Christchurch and Bournemouth, and further afield at Weymouth and Swanage.The historic market town of Salisbury is a 10 minute drive with it's beautiful cathedral and great shopping. 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.

"Amazing place to stay...."
Sweetslade was just as lovely as in the photos on the website. It's a beautiful place with a stunning view to wake up to each morning. It had everything you could possibly need for a very comfortable stay. As it was November, the weather was a bit hit and miss but with that lovely log burner we certainly didn't care as we could soon cosy up in the lounge. We'd have no problem recommending Sweetslade to our friends and family and hope to go back ourselves.
Thanks Robert :o)
Thanks for taking the time to review have sorted those pesky wasps out now thanks for the tip.
