This stunning Country House Hotel is set in 44 acres of landscaped gardens and beautiful countryside. It is located within minutes of secluded coves and many fine sandy beaches, such as Croyde, Woolacombe and Saunton, yet so accessible to the A361, too. It is also within easy reach of Ilfracombe, Exmoor and the famous North Devon coastal path offering spectacular views. The property, with origins in the Domesday Book and parts dating back some 400 years, was tastefully converted to a hotel in 1976 and has recently undergone a major refurbishment.
Many of the local beaches are popular for surfing and wind-surfing and lessons are available for those who are new to the sport. Nearby you may like to try your hand at fishing either on local well stocked lakes or maybe take a boat trip sea fishing from Ilfracombe Harbour. For families, there are many attractions nearby including The Milky Way Adventure Park, Watermough Castle theme park, Kilarney fun water park and Combe Martin Wildlife and Dinosaur Park to name a few. National Trust properties, gardens and many walking and cycling opportunities are all situated within easy reach of the Hotel.
Our “Tyme Restaurant” (which is also open to non-residents) is open all year for evening meals, Sunday and week-day lunches, cream teas, private parties and weddings. Having grown-up in North Devon, our Head Chef, draws inspiration from the amazing scenery and surroundings the area boasts. We have a fantastic range of food producers and suppliers on our doorstep, all of which he incorporates into his own take of the best quality of modern British cuisine that is fresh, seasonal and local.
In addition to the Lounge Bar and Tyme Restaurant, the Hotel boasts wonderful facilities including en-suite bedrooms and suites, a courtyard and extensive gardens where you can relax with a glass of wine. This, coupled with an indoor heated swimming pool, sauna, jacuzzi and games room for residents means that Trimstone Manor Country House Hotel has everything you need to relax and enjoy your stay.
The Hotel also incorporates several self-catering cottages. Each Cottage is fully furnished to a good standard and offers a variety of sleeping arrangements to suit most needs (each cottage sleeping up to nine people). Pets are welcome in the Cottages but are excluded from the Hotel, other than guide dogs. Guests staying in the cottages are also most welcome to use the Hotel bar and Restaurant and enjoy special terms for breakfast and evening meals.
We are able to cater for larger functions, including weddings. We hold a license to hold wedding ceremonies and our grounds are also licensed for entertainment. So, whether you want a formal a la carte meal in our Restaurant or a marquee with a more relaxed atmosphere, we can help design a day tailored to suit you.
