Okay so you have to arrive by 7:15am to join this Breakfast meeting which can last until 9am+ if you chose to stay that long. Interesting subjects with an interesting mix of people. Good breakfast too

I got married here last year. The most amazing day. The staff was wonderful, they were so helpful. Made me feel calm. The food was lovely. The bedroom was old and calming.

The wife and I got married here in June 2012. The grounds are stunning and have some lovely views. Everything was very clean and the hotel was incredibly quiet (after the party stopped that is!). Very, very friendly staff. They were there for our every need!

A family get together at Heanton Punchardon (5 miles down the road) got my wife and her cousin looking for a hotel. This was selected from Trip Advisor. An older home/estate that dates back to the 12th century. We found the rooms to be very clean, the water very hot, beds comfortable and service extremely good. The bar was opened... More

Dear AR Thank you very much for your comments. It was a pleasure to have your group stay with us. Yes, the Main Road route is only 300 yards up our lane so if anyone doesn't like the narrow lane back towards Woolacombe, it is easy to use the main roads and no great diversion for anyone.

Located down a barely used North Devon lane, Trimstone Manor is located in the most delightful rural location, surrounded by bird song or the occasional cries from the poultry that are kept in the adjoining paddock. I was there with a number of colleagues and we enjoyed a delicious dinner before entertaining ourselves in the Games Room with table tennis,... More

Very short notice arrangements to stay at this hotel. Very accommodating, extremely helpful staff. Allow dogs in the annex but nowhere in the main hotel rooms which is a pity.
