Greenslade is a lovely 4-bedroomed home situated in the heart of the New Forest. 

Our home is bright, colourful, and full of Greenslade Family photos of all the fun activities we have been up to over the last few months. Our big garden is used daily by adults and children to bug hunt, play football, go on the trampoline, and have BBQs or water fights on hot days. The adults are all entirely focussed on the children, ensuring the children’s interests are at the forefront of everything that they do.

The children are encouraged to explore, encouraged to find new hobbies and skills and encouraged to be themselves, expressing themselves in their own way. This could be by decorating their room, building bug hotels in the garden or joining social groups out in the community.
