Myself and my partner have just come back from a weekend at the Briers and the first thing we had to do was write a review. This place is fabulous. Suzan and Brian (the owners) couldnt have been nicer, they recommended places to eat, things to do and were on hand for anything we needed, although you were very much leftalone, which we loved, as the last time we stayed in a B & B we were constantly disturbed by the owners, knocking the door, and we felt very much like we were in someones home. This wont happen in the Briers. Its so relaxed and friendly. The rooms were so clean and very warm. The views from the windows of the bedroom were beautiful. The only one thing i think that could be changed it tea and coffee facilites in the bedroom,although i do have to say that there was a lounge with tea, coffee and biscuits. When we asked for a kettle we did get one straight away. As for breakfast, wow, it was like a four star hotel, we were offered seconds of anything we wanted. Brian and Suzan were the nicest people we could have met. We would recommend anyone to stay there. The value for money is amazing, We will most certainly be back. Thanks Suzan and Brian. Clare and Martin ( we might be back for our honeymoon lol)
