Fantastic weekend away

  • 5 of 5

We spent a weekend at Sweet Briar with 5 other couples. We had an amazing time! The house is very spacious and we never felt on top of each other. The pool and the sauna were really the icing on the cake! The 2 living rooms allowed us to have a dedicated games rooms and a TV/movie room. The house is very well equipped for big groups and even has a drinks dedicated fridge. Nigel was always a pleasure to deal with. I would highly recommend this for big adult groups and big adult/kid groups as it easily caters to both. We all left wanting to come back again very soon!

fantastic house

  • 5 of 5

We had a long weekend for a family celebration, the house was well equipped and loads of space to spread out. The pool and sauna were a great bonus and kept the kids busy and the large gardens beautiful.

We would definitely recommend it!

Fabulous house for a hen do.

  • 4 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay at Sweet Briar Farm for my friend's hen do. The house totally blew us away-what an amazing place for a party! The open-plan kitchen, dining room, conservatory area was perfect for a large group and the swimming pool and sauna were such a brilliant bonus. Nigel was really helpful and responsive to queries by email and the whole experience of booking, getting the keys, being shown around the house was laid back and trouble free. Decor upstairs is perhaps a little tired as mentioned in other reviews but overall we couldn't recommend it enough for a hen do or large get together for friends/family.

gteat family holiday

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned for a second time from sweetbriar. We are a family of 16 holidaying together ranging in ages from 3 to 84 and had a fantastic time. Plenty of reception rooms to spread out in, lovely garden room, well equipped kitchen and great pool. Kids loved the stereo system to pool and we made good use of the tennis court. House may now be a bit tired on the decorating front but with young children this suited us. Owner very helpful and we are now contemplating returning again next year.

Great Holiday

  • 5 of 5

Booked the house for a family holiday My party totalled 10 people of mixed ages. My dealing with the owner (Nigel) was professional Friendly and efficient. The house met all our expectations well equipped, clean and spacious. The pool & sauna was a big hit as was the ability to play music from the lounge to speakers in the pool room (via CD or I pod). Outside grounds were large and well kept. The Fenced Tennis Court was a nice addition (take your own balls)
