Just a brief overnight stay as a business traveller - chose Trimstone as it has a running machine in its small gym room. Wonderfully quiet, beautiful surroundings, the bumpy track to the hotel promises a sense of isolation, which didn't disappoint and suited me perfectly. Comfortable room, comfortable bed, excellent night's sleep. Up early for an 'indoor run' and then... More

Spent the last two nights at Trimstone, booked because it was dog friendly, Lovely welcome and lovely breakfast. Shame the restaurant and bar where closed, needs a little updating but a nice place. The staff are lovely.

We only dropped in for lunch on a Thursday lunchtime whilst down in the area, nearby to Braunton. I have to say we found it by chance and it was a beautiful and amazing location and would love to come back another time. We had a breakfast brunch in the dining room and they kindly opened up the doors to... More

We stayed at Trimstone Manor before and after going to Lundy in August. At first we just booked one night each side of Lundy but later decided to add on a few extra days before. The person who dealt with us on the phone was very helpful and had no problem with us changing our booking. When we arrived we... More

I booked this hotel because it is dog friendly and I was in the area to walk at Woolacombe. It is very old fashioned (not in such a nice way) and I thought it very expensive for what it offered. I was told I was upgraded to a double room - I do not like to think what the other... More

We visited Trimstone Manor Country House Hotel to Celebrate an Anniversary, and celebrate we did. The grounds were in excellent condition, and waiting to be explored. Although over 200 people attended, there were plenty of staff in attendance and the food was delicious. The Hotel and gardens are perfect for either a cosy meal for two , or family lunch.... More

We had a really enjoyable time to celebrate a Business' 30th Anniversary. There was a good selection of food including everything from a high tea to a hog roast. Lovely to see so many people having such a nice time.

I was very disappointed with the Granary and the Mill which we had booked for a big family holiday. The cottages and facilities are tired as others have mentioned, we had an issue as one of the bedrooms was damp and very unpleasant to sleep in. I made a complaint about to Phillip the manager who made no apology to... More

I cannot remember another guest when the agent through whom she booked forewarned us that this lot could be trouble. This was even before they arrived. First, I should point-out that I have reported them to the TripAdvisor Fraud team for their behaviour and because of their attempted blackmail and really, under TA policy, the review therefore, should not still...
