Slad is a delightful village clinging onto the edge of the Slad Valley to the North of Stroud. The village is famous for being the home (and final resting place) of author Laurie Lee who wrote Cider With Rosie based on his childhood in the village. Village life is focussed around the Parish Church and the Woolpack public house whilst nearby Painswick and Stroud offer a range of shopping, recreational and educational facilities. The Elliot (Swifts Hill) Nature Reserve offers views to Wales on a clear day and is criss-crossed by footpaths as well as being home to rare orchids and adders.

Education options in the area are strong in both the private and state sectors with independent schools including Kings School, Wycliffe College, Cheltenham College, Cheltenham Ladies College and Dean Close whilst there are Grammar schools in Stroud, Gloucester and Cheltenham.
