Good location for beaches and walks. Hotel difficult to classify. Has an old world charm, presentable and well maintained accommodation. Staff helpful and friendly. Breakfast was very good. Expensive.

We were a bit dissappointed with the property. It felt as though it has seen better days and could do with a makeover. The staff were friendly and the breakfast was fine though we had to ask for fresh eggs to be re-cooked as they arrived cold and hard. The place is a bit remote so bank on paying for... More

Dear Tony Thank you very much for your review. Naturally we are disappointed if you left us feeling disappointed in any way! You are right - our property is historic and clearly belies the £1million+ we have expended upon it since we moved here in 2007 but I wonder if its characterful state is just not quite what you were...

Fantastic Weekend! I won a competition with AVON for a 2 for 1 weekend escape and my boyfriend and I chose North Devon as our destination. I rang Trimstone Manor House and they were very helpful and eager to have us as guests. It was very easy to communicate and they presented their tariffs and various options, making it very... More

We stayed at Trimstone Manor to celebrate our special wedding anniversary. Our room was so comfortable and over looked the extensive gardens and beautiful country views beyond. A bottle of chilled champagne and chocolates were waiting in the room for us on arrival. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff who were friendly and attentive towards us. We dined... More

We recently returned from an absolutely lovely family break at Trimstone Manor. We stayed in one of cottages on the Trimstone Estate which suited our needs perfectly. Our cottage was spotlessly clean and very well maintained and had everything you would need for a family getaway including dishwasher tablets! The bedrooms upstairs had cottage windows, oak beams and crisp white... More

Trimstone Manor is comfortable, has lovely gardens and the friendliest staff. If you travel with kids and/or dogs you will not find a more ideal place. At the same time you and your family can be pretty independent.

Trimstone Manor is located in a beautiful country setting between the villages of Braunton and Ilfracombe. It is I/2 mile off the main road so it is quiet and peaceful. The staff is helpful and gracious. The rooms are furnished beautifully. A pool and sauna are available. We stayed in the East Down room and had a four poster bed... More

We rented several of the cottages for my brothers 40th birthday and had a wonderful time. The cottages were ideal with a pool and outdoor area to entertain the children, whilst the adults were happily entertained in the games room. Trimstone manor is peaceful but so close to many wonderful places. the only down side is, for big self catering... More

Six relatives and I spent a two day break at Trimstone Manor in January. It's a delightful place in a beautiful setting and the owners and staff could not have been more helpful and friendly, though never intrusive. 'Manor country house hotel' is a very accurate description.
