Trimstone Manor Country House Hotel
The lovely manor house is set in 44 acres of landscaped gardens and beautiful North Devon countryside. It is located within minutes of secluded coves and many fine sandy beaches, such as Croyde, Woolacombe and Saunton, yet is easily accessible from the A361. It is also within easy reach of Ilfracombe, Exmoor and the famous North Devon coastal path offering spectacular views.
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 since undergone a major refurbishment. It offers wonderful facilities in addition to the lounge bar and restaurant, including en-suite bedrooms and suites, a courtyard and extensive gardens, where you can relax with a glass of wine. This, coupled with an indoor heated swimming pool, Jacuzzi, sauna and games room for residents, means that Trimstone Manor Country House Hotel has everything you need to relax and enjoy your stay. Please ask about special offers, including special breaks for golfers and shooters.
Chef Jon Hughes (chef profile page 69) was previously head chef at the Hampshire Hotel, St Helier (which was awarded three stars) before joining the team at Trimstone. Here, he continues to win rave reviews for his scintillating range of menus, prepared for your delectation. On your visit to Trimstone, meet for pre-dinner drinks at the bar or, weather permitting, in the gardens, before enjoying your meal in the dining room, followed by coffee, there or in the lounge. The restaurant (which is also open to non-residents) is open for evening meals, Sunday and weekday lunches, private parties, weddings, conferences, workshops and much more. So, whether you visit purely to sample Jon's culinary wares or to stay the night, Trimstone will impress from start to finish.
