My husband and I booked a last minute 2 night break .We found the staff friendly and welcoming. Our room was clean and spacious. The house and grounds were charming .We had full English breakfast on both days (with perfect poached eggs!) and had a lovely evening meal with the best home made lemon meringue pie. Staff happily uncovered the... More

The setting was beautiful, the room was very comfortable, my only complaint was that the smoke alarm went off twice during the night. Wish I had packed my swimsuit for the indoor pool :( Our little dog was made very welcome.

we made our booking in quite short notice for peak season/ tail end of August for a family of 5 - quite a big ask for most hotels but Trimstone manor were more than happy to help accommodate us. After a warm welcome we were taken to 'Arlington' (I think) a lovely spacious room arranged to suit our needs and... More

1) For a restaurant to be a restaurant, there would need to be a chef willing to serve food to people. For instance in the evening. We were told we would have to go into town to eat. 2) The room was horrendously over-priced. £120 for a tiny room that was mainly a corridor. 3) It is not a 'Country... More

Dear Mattotto and Ailie M You failed to preface your ‘review’ with the comment that this was about blackmail for cash – or a bad review if we didn’t oblige. First you approached your online booking firm with which you had booked a non-refundable two night stay to say that you wanted one night’s money back as you had chosen... More

It was a short stay for our honeymoon. We arrived at 4:30pm. We were told the restaurant was 'fully booked this evening' and we therefore had to drive into Ilfracombe for some dinner..... We were shown to our 'dog-friendly' room. It was mainly corridor and absolutely tiny. We walked around outside to find a dilapidated, rusty trampoline. We drove into... More

The children loved the trampoline in the grounds, table tennis in the games room and the lovely warm swimming pool. Our self catering apartment was very spacious, comfortable and clean with everything a family could need. Friendly staff helped make our stay at this wonderful historic house a holiday we'd like to repeat. Hopefully we'll be back next year to... More

We stayed in Gate Cottage which was two bed self catering accommodation. We enjoyed using the pool (everyday), had a game of tennis and enjoyed the odd game of pool. The accommodation was clean, had everything that we needed, we've been twice now and enjoyed the great location near loads of great places to visit in Devon. My daughter left... More

The staff at Trimstone Manor took us in when we were sorely disappointed by a booked b&b in Parracombe. It's good to know that some establishments really do know how to look after their guests. Staff were polite and kind even though we could see they were really busy.. The rooms were clean and comfortable. Breakfast was great and we... More

We stayed at Trimstone Manor for 2 nights (Saturday and Sunday) over the Bank Holiday weekend. We arrived around 2.30 pm having driven down a very narrow track and when we commented on this the receptionist said "oh this is the bad way" and that taking the exit of the A361 is "the good way" - fine but put this...

We went on a rainy afternoon for cream tea. It is very much off the beaten track but in a lovely setting. Service was friendly even though they seemed a little surprised to see us. The scones, jam and cream were lovely and they also packed up what we didn't eat so we could take it away with us which... More
