Description of Mill Cottage

Mill Cottage is one of seven Self-Catering Cottages adjoining Trimstone Manor, which are VisitBritain Three Star accredited and were converted from what was originally a Mill and its ancillary buildings.

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.

Following recent refurbishment, the Cottages are fully furnished to a good standard and offer a variety of sleeping arrangements to suit most needs (the cottages sleeping up to nine people). We provide everything you need for your self-catering holiday except towels.

The cottages are set around a sheltered courtyard adjoining Trimstone Manor Country House Hotel, a welcoming Three Star Country House Hotel with a growing reputation for its excellent “Tyme Restaurant” and guests staying in the Cottages are most welcome to use the Hotel Bar and Restaurant and enjoy special terms for breakfast and evening meals.

Whatever the weather there is always something to do at Trimstone. Guests are welcome to use the games room, tennis court, indoor heated swimming pool, sauna and fitness room, walk in the grounds or simply relax in a quite spot with a drink and a good book.

Why not find out for yourself that Trimstone Cottages are the ideal spot for your next holiday.
