Trimstone self catering cottages in the grounds of Trimstone Manor Country House Hotel in North Devon are set in 44 acres of landscaped gardens and countryside, within minutes of secluded coves and many fine sandy beaches. The Cottages have been converted from what was originally an old mill and its ancilliary buildings. They are clean and comfortably furnished with all you need for your self catering holiday. The six cottages vary in size and provide accommodation for between 2 and 8 people.

The cottages will appeal to both families and couples as they have the benefit of all the hotel facilities including the restaurant and bar, indoor heated swimming pool (seasonal), sauna, gym, games room and recreation paddock and free wi-fi.

Trimstone is a tranquil secluded spot but easily accessible from the A361 making it the ideal spot for a quiet holiday whilst allowing guests to explore the beaches and countryside of North Devon. Local attractions include sheep dog and falconry demonstrations, a sea life aquarium, surfing lessons, fishing and clay shooting, historic Chambercombe Manor and the National Trust's Carriage Collection at Arlington Court as well as artist Damien Hurst's "Verity" on Ilfracombe pier and many beautiful coastal and country walks.

Trimstone also allows families and larger groups to enjoy holidays in the same place with those who want a relaxing break staying in hotel and those with young children who prefer the flexibility of self catering to stay close by.

To avoid disappointment, as bookings happen in many forms, we recommend that you make an enquiry with us for your possible holiday rather than booking immediately. We shall reply as quickly as we can. This will ensure that your chosen cottage is still available and we should like to ensure that the cottage you select from the seven units we have is the most suitable for your circumstances.

It is also within easy reach of Ilfracombe, Exmoor and the famous North Devon coastal path.

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.

The Hotel boasts wonderful facilities including en-suite bedrooms and suites, self-catering cottages, a Lounge Bar and Restaurant, with a courtyard and extensive gardens where you can relax with a glass of wine. This, coupled with an indoor heated swimming pool, sauna, gym and games room for residents means that Trimstone Manor Country House Hotel has everything you need to relax and enjoy your stay.


Perfect location for those who want a peaceful and relaxing break. But with easy access to the A361 Trimstone Trimstone is perfect for those who want to explore North Devon. The fine sandy beaches and rolling surf of Croyde, Woolacombe and Saunton are a short drive away as are the secluded coves and cliff paths around Ilfracombe and Combe Martin. Other attractions include the famous twin villages of Lynton and Lynmouth, Exmoor, the North Devon coastal footpath, Arlington Court for the National Trusts’ Carriage Collection or the delights of a working sheep dog and falconry demonstration at Lee Cross under a mile away.

"Tired facilities in great location"

This is a great location, with access to loads of facilities, pool, gym, tennis court, games room.they were all adequate, but a bit tired and the presentation of the place at booking showed the facili… More

Many thanks for your review - glad you had a good time with us!

I was very sorry to hear about the broken glass as that should have been noticed even if the cottages are self-catering and would have been cleaned thoroughly upon vacation. That said, being away myself for your week, I am the final pair of roving eyes for such things (several times every day) so apologies for my absence in that respect!

We do try very hard to market what we have as the way the cottages are and with genuine photographs and comprehensive descriptions too and continue to improve and enhance them but not wishing to detract from the homely nature and character of our historic property - and at the right price of course (including free Pool in the Games Room!).

We shall look forward to seeing you again in the future.

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review.

My very best wishes
