Sweet Briars has a traditional layout with a charming country kitchen complete with all necessary appliances and a back door leading to the yard.

Walk into the snug, which has comfy seats and a woodburner, into the main spacious sitting room, which has an open fire and wide comfortable sofas to allow you relax while admiring the spectacular views.

A charming dining room adjoins the living room, comfortably seating eight people around a large table. With the original Georgian fireplace and even more spectacular vistas, there is lots to chat about during dinner.

The utility area offers a washer, a sink, and drying facilities, as well as plenty of space to hang jackets and dry boots! A separate downstairs cloakroom is located at the back entrance, which leads to the garden. Take advantage of the south west views from the conservatory and witness one of the island’s spectacular sunsets before leaving Sweet Briars.

Upstairs, there are four spacious bedrooms, one with an en-suite shower, and all are tastefully designed with clean linens and complementary soft furnishings.

The family bathroom has a wonderful view of the yard and is tastefully decorated with a lovely claw foot bath.

Outside, there’s a beautiful grass and a well-kept cottage garden complete with furnishings, a grill, and a summerhouse.


The White Mouse Inn at Chale, a local 18th-century tavern with a selection of good food and real beers on tap, is a must-visit.

You are in a perfect location to visit Blackgang Chine, the world’s oldest amusement park, which features a variety of themed roller-coaster attractions that you and your children will enjoy.

There are numerous sandy beaches within walking distance of Chale where you may spend your afternoons sunbathing against the golden sands or swimming in the beautiful waters.

You may explore the coast and country on any of the local paths, with stunning ocean vistas as your backdrop and a profusion of bird life for avid birdwatchers and photographers among you, thanks to its rural position. Especially to the Pepper Pot, a 35-foot-tall octagonal structure known as ‘St Catherine’s Oratory’. Built in 1312, this mediaeval lighthouse is thought to be one of the oldest in the United Kingdom. The National Trust acreage surrounding the Pepper Pot is a walker’s and birdwatcher’s dream, with birds visible up close.
