Slad is a village in Gloucestershire, England, in the Slad Valley about 2 miles (3 km) from Stroud on the B4070 road from Stroud to Birdlip.

Slad is famous for being the home and final resting place of Laurie Lee, who based his book Cider with Rosie on his own life in the village.

The Slad Brook runs along the bottom of the valley. There is a small parish church in the village, and a small traditional pub, the Woolpack.
