    The 10 of us had a lovely time at Sweet Briar. It is a beautiful house with lovely gardens. The owner, Lord Hamilton, was very pleasant and accommodating. The couple of issues we raised he resolved very quickly, although the dishwasher issue he could not fix during our stay, so he gave us some bottles of bubbly to compensate us, which was nice. We loved how close everything is on the Isle of Wight, literally no more than 40 minutes to anywhere. Very handy for Sweet Briar was a huge Tesco Xtra that we made multiple trips to for supplies. The house was well equipped - with 2 kitchens, bbq hut (which we used - was great, just needed lighting), outdoor play equipment, hot tub (which we used, was fab), sun bed and sauna (not used). We visited various beaches (all completely different, yet lovely) and attractions and were lucky enough to visit Sandown bay whilst the Hullabaloo festival was on. Another highlight for the 4 of us that went, was the trip to the local speedway, where it was specially organised for us to enjoy 2 laps from inside the race green. The 3 kids (aged 2 & 4) all loved the garden play equipment, the varied assortment of toys in the kids big bedroom and the trips out - a particular highlight was the Amazon Zoo World - we all loved walking with lemurs and the playground and dinosaur bone dig areas. The local steam train was fun and we all enjoyed the falconry centre and the bird displays . We had great weather so all in all a fab trip!
