In the heart of the National Forest, this early 18th-century pub provides modern, cozily furnished rooms with free Wi-Fi. Room was spotless, bed was like sleeping on a cloud, waterfall shower was devine. David was an exceptional host he went above and beyond for us. Free refrigerated water as much as you like was a lovely touch. We had a 3am checkout and breakfast sandwiches were left for us to have at the airport. Breakfast on the other 2 mornings were lovely. Loved our stay and will return when visiting family again. We stayed in a standard double which was perfect for us as we just laid our heads there. If you like a more spacious room the deluxe is definitely worth the money, the other couples ended up having to book the deluxe.
Located in Swadlincote, 31 miles from Coventry, the brier house has a shared lounge and free WiFi. All units feature a satellite TV, a shared bathroom and a fully equipped kitchen with a dishwasher. Susan was absolutely lovely as a host. The room was clean and comfortable, and the location was quiet. the only issue was with Booking and Google Maps, as both had the wrong location for the house, so I had to backtrack a bit to actually find it.

We found that everywhere we went during our stay everyone was extremely helpful and friendly . We went to a lovely garden centre. A nearby marina ate lovely food and everywhere was clean and tidy . Also had lovely evening meals at the Bull Head .
Swadlincote is a good centre for countryside and riverside walks. It is handy for Derby, Ashby de la Zouch, Leicester and especially Burton-on-Trent. Burton is an excellent shopping centre. There is a lovely park by the river. You can take a tour of the local Brewery and have a lovely lunch, or snack in the tap house. The National Memorial Arboretum is very close just off the A38, and should not be missed - a tranquil and beautiful setting for memorials, not only to the Armed Forces but also the Police, victims of the Twin Towers, and many others.
The village is a typical Derbyshire /Leicestershire village nothing to write home about. We arrived very late evening and managed to find a local Indian Restaurant servin* food which was excellent. Their are no distinguishing feature about the village. However, the owners of The Bull made us feel very at home. A quiet place to stay if you have something else to go to as part of your stay. Saturday evening in the Pub was busy and the restaurant full, all guests seemed to be regular guests. A good sign of good host(s).
There are a few gems around like Asby (full of history) and the local reservoir but best time to go is on a sunny day, as you could easily spend a whole day there. Also on the main high street is The Jennings Room, a little tea room great for a bit to eat, cocktails and the staff are so friendly.
