Self-catering

Sleeping

No need to fight over bedrooms – all are good sized and individually accessed on one floor. Each room has a warm en-suite with rainforest showers and 6ft heated rails filled with fluffy white bath sheets and hand towels. All rooms have Luxury Hypnos beds – choose between two 3ft single beds or one huge 6ft super-king bed – all adorned with crisp white linen and featherdown duvets.

Please see the layout to help plan your stay.

Cooking & dining

You can all sit together round the huge table in the central open-plan dining area with stunning views of the valley. Have your delicious spread light up when the sun shines through the south facing picture windows. There is a fully kitted kitchen and utility room for serious cooking with huge quantities of equipment from steamers and casserole dishes to baking equipment. Ensuring everyone from cooking novices to head chefs will find their culinary feet.

Relaxing

Spend time relaxing with friends and family in a choice of sitting rooms. The smaller sitting room is a perfect reading nook for the morning newspaper or your favourite novel or simply relax and daydream out of the huge windows taking in the fantastic 180° panoramas of the luscious view while listening to your favourite music through the Bose speakers provided. The other larger sitting room is perfect to gather the whole group together for pre-dinner drinks, a board game from the selection provided, or a movie night. Use the 50” smart TV to connect to your favourite subscription streaming platforms.  You’ll also find the football table and a good selection of board games and decks of cards in the games room.

Enjoying the outdoors

The sheltered south facing patio is a perfect spot for relaxing and taking in the views. On hot summers days or balmy evenings dine together al fresco around large patio tables. Use the BBQ and have a go at being your own pit-master! Or if you need to get more horizontal you can take the picnic blankets and sunbathe on the soft lawn. Snuggle up afterwards around the firepit telling stories and roasting marshmallows. If the weather is favourable how about a game of ping-pong on the patio outside using the full size ping-pong table, or perhaps a more civilised game of croquet on the lawn.

“Our weekend at Sladen Lodge was superb in every way. On arrival our expectations were exceeded – it would be difficult to find somewhere better equipped and the standard of the en-suite bedrooms was like staying in a hotel rather than a rented house. The whole house has been exceptionally well thought out and we loved the fact that we could all comfortably eat at the same table.”
