Just visited Brierholme for the 2nd time this year and we loved it. The location is wonderful and use of the private car park a bonus. Geraldine and Trevor are fantastic hosts who cannot do enough for you. The breakfasts are excellent and the homemade marmalade just finishes it off . We look forward to visiting again.

Spent four nights at Brierholme which was most enjoyable and I would recommend a stay. The breakfasts were excellent with various choices. Gerry and Trevor were very good hosts and made us feel welcome. The location was perfect as it was a very short distance from the town centre which had a good variety of places to eat.
