The cottage was lovely and the facilities were excellent.. There were however aspects of the property which we could have done with knowing about beforehand. These are not criticisms, they are part of the charm of the place, but we could have done with knowing about them. First, the drive up to the cottage is very steep and comes off a bend in the road, so it is always necessary to have a person guide a car our. There is a mirror opposite the driveway, but it cannot be seen at night. Second, the ceilings in the cottage are very low, and there is always a step down into a room. This means that tall people are likely to bang their heads on the lintels of the doors. All in all, we had a lovely time at Sweet Briars,and would thoroughly recommend it to others.
