The iconic boutique lodging in the heart of Greytown



Briarwood is an exquisite example of one of Greytown’s iconic preserved Heritage Buildings, circa 1867, the front façade is rated Grade 2 under the Historic Places Trust.

With its Qualmark 5 star rating of Boutique and Lodge, Briarwood is set amongst serene gardens, with established Hornbeam and Copper Beech hedging, clipped Buxus and Topiary trees and with the soothing trickle of a whimsical free standing fountain. Briarwood is a truly unique offering for your perfect country escape and just a stone’s throw from the village centre.

The Suites and Studio offer unparalleled luxury within a heritage listed building in the Victorian village of Greytown. Step outside your Suite's french doors and into Briarwood's gardens and one feels instantly charmed. Pour a glass of local Rose´ and sit in your own private courtyard whilst the sound of the ornate fountain washes over you. Briarwood is the epitome of style and grace.

The Suites and Studio are exceptionally well finished with top quality fittings and furnishings. From the fresh flowers, to the goose-down duvets and Victorian armchairs, Briarwood gives one the sense that no expense has been spared. And that's the way one should feel when escaping to our little village amongst the oaks. 

Come and stay with us, come and experience Briarwood.
