Trimstone Nr Woolacombe West Down
Tel: 01271862841
The Cottages are set in 44 acres of landscaped gardens and beautiful North Devon countryside and provide the perfect location for those who want a peaceful and relaxing break. But with easy access to the A361 Trimstone is also 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. For energy efficiency (both for cost and environmental reasons), please note that the Swimming Pool will be closed after October Half-Term until Easter during our low season.

16th August 2018:

We found the experience ‘quirky’ but most enjoyable. Practical things which would have improved our stay: The refrigerators were too small for large catering, particularly in the Granary and some of the doors needed repair (although every time we raised issues such as this the staff responded quickly and effectively). We had little need of a large freezer for our short stay. We also had potential disasters with hungry people when the hot plate in the Granary switches itself off when cooking a lot! The kitchen bins are too small and we generated a lot of recycling and the instruction to leave this beside the bin would have meant mountains of it in the living space. Some of the carpets could do with better tacking down. One of the children cut his foot in the Manor Cottage. The mattress we slept on was too hard. We bought a memory foam topping which solved it for us. The children loved the trampoline but it is rather hazardous.... We only make these comments to be helpful. We will probably book a return stay in the future

Tips:

Watermouth Castle was ideal for children. A party enjoyed cycling on the Tarka Trail and were able to hire bikes quite easily. The Quad biking was very expensive but the teenagers had fun.

Everything perfect just an issue with one bed that we think had some insect that bite at night :-/ and some corners of the house with spider web.

Tips:

Great location, make sure to ask if some towels are provided!

23rd April 2018:

There were a few hiccups at the start of our stay, but nothing serious. Anything which was reported was dealt with swiftly and efficiently. We found the staff very pleasant. The only problems which we encountered were the small dining space and the small sitting room in Paddock Cottage. We took our large table over to Mill Cottage and cooked and ate there with the blessing of the owner. None of this spoiled our stay!

Tips:

Where does one begin? Beautiful Countryside ... great for rambling! Arlington Hall. Parracombe with its beautiful old church and the delightful food at the Fox and Goose. A trip to Lundy Island calling in at Mr Chips on the Quay on the way back. The coastal path. Lynton and Lynmouth and the water powered funicular.

All great for purpose. A walking holiday. I would have liked a light proof blind in the bedroom, and a reminder about towels and a bath mat. The very bright light over the swimming pool entrance was a bit of a pain, making the room very light at bedtime. Nice stay. Thank you.

Comfortable cottage in peaceful rural surroundings.Very much enjoyed our stay.

Tips:

One of U.K.'s most magnificent beaches at Woolacombe just 2/3 miles away and quaint fishing town of Ilfracombe also 2/3 miles away. Perfect place for a short stay.

5th June 2017:

Our second stay at Trimstone proved even better than last year. Our accommodation was very comfortable and the facilities perfect for our seven children. The complex is safe and 'explorable' and to be honest the children only sought out adults when hungry, thirsty or needing an adult to sit poolside. The same applied to our family dogs, except the pool! Wifi is excellent allowing numerous devices to stream, play and surf. 20+Mbs. The staff are always helpful and around to answer questions or just to pass the time of day. The location is perfect for water sports, beaches and walking. Ilfracombe is your quintessential English seaside town with shops, chippies, boats and pubs. Our party took the sea safari from here and loved it. We also went coasteering with the blue double decker bus team out of Croyde Bay along Baggy Point. That was excellent and highly recommended. Local beaches from Trimstone are Woolacombe, sand dunes, gentle sloping beach, dog friendly and chips! Croyde, sheltered and Saunterton sands again dog friendly, windy and surf schools galore. Combe Martin is rocky but has a cafe beach side and shops to spend. This is where we canoed from last year. We won't be at Trimstone next year purely because we are exploring the south Devon coast for a change. I did however get approached by a deputation of children on our day of departure asking if I could cancel south Devon and come back to Trimstone so watch this space. Memories made at Trimstone. Thank you.

We had a fantastic stay in the Granary Cottage and the kids and dogs loved the freedom of the estate running through the fields, playing on the trampoline and using the leisure facilities.

Tips:

fantastic for families looking for some peace and quiet in the North Devon seaside. There is plenty to do and see locally that is just a short drive away and the staff will help you our with recommendations of what to see and do.

we stayed 5 days in the self-catering Mill-Apartment. The big 2-room-apartment with a joined kitchen was very well equipped and the beds were good. The staff was helpful and friendly. The view from the manorhouse was beautiful. We didn't try the restaurant by our selves, but it looked like very inviting.

Tips:

It is not far to Ilfracombe (a very nice village) and Woolacombe (beautiful beach). Also Arlington court is a nice place to go (when the weather is not so good. Lynton and Lynmouth are also quite near and very nice for a daytrip. The Coastpath is quite near with lovely views.
