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.

Slad is around 2 miles from Stroud with Gloucester, Cheltenham and Cirencester 7, 11 and 14 miles respectively. The surrounding towns provide a comprehensive range of social, recreational and retail amenities to suit all tastes including Stroud's award-winning Farmers' Market. Stroud station offers trains to London taking approx. 1 hour 35 minutes.

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.
