Trimnells House offers guests the chance to enjoy village life in a designated area of outstanding natural beauty. Guests may walk to country pubs in a friendly unspoiled village ,just off the tourist track. Visitors of all kinds are welcomed ,our overseas visitors have described Colerne as "a bit of old England". We think by this they mean that locals will greet you and talk in the street and pubs. Local facilities include golf, clay pigeon shooting, quad bikes, go karts etc. There is also a play area within the village.

If you feel our terms are not suitable for you, eg you have less than 13 people. Or you want more information on some points, just send an enquiry.

Guests who have enjoyed Trimnells House and gardens the most have been families and other groups who seem to enjoy the peacefull walled gardens where children can play while adults can eat and drink. Another group has been Londoners, who seem to enjoy the contrast and leave with batteries recharged.

We have also had alternative health seminars reviewd here:- here that have used the house and quiet gardens as a backdrop for videod events, as it could be for your special event. The two local pubs both offer food and one can offer outside catering. Guests may be interested to use the two local pubs for Hen nights and other parties. They can be found on Facebook. The Fox and Hounds and The Six Bells.

You may wish to contact them to discuss what you need including takeaway or eat in food. The Fox and Hounds have a back room that was used by a hen party complete with a male entertainer! Another idea for a party could include a boat trip down river from Bath. Check out Bath City Boat Trips on Tripadvisor.

The local Michelin starred Lucknam Park Hotel offers different dining opportunity including The Brasserie. The Hotel is popular with celebrities, as is Bath.

Trimnells offers large rooms (~20-30 sq mtrs) with en suites. Large off street car park. A quiet, safe location away from main roads but not far from major airports and the M4. Bath is a 20-30 minute drive to the center. We offer disabled facilities including a ground floor bedroom with level access shower. There is also a stair-lift to the first floor. Which might also be useful for those who have been to the pub. The accommodation is on the ground and first floor. The side annex and top floor are separate from the rest of the house including a seperate staircase and door. Noise is not a problem in a detached house if you want to party, and there will be no noise from other parts of the house if you want quiet.

Additionally, our guests can use the Bath Rewards Card which entitles them to a range of discounts within Bath including the Therma Spa and Roman Baths. See here, http://www.stayinbath.org/wp-content/uploads/2015/03/BRC_SpringUpdate15_Final.pdf

Film buffs and families who want to keep children entertained may want to visit nearby Castle Combe where scenes from Stardust, the first Dr Doolittle and Warhorse were filmed, and Lacock where scenes from Harry Potter and numerous costume dramas were filmed. William Fox Talbot did some early pioneering work on photography in Lacock Abbey and there is a Museum of photography in Lacock. The village and Abbey are owned by the National Trust and preserved for posterity.

Trimnells House, Colerne, near Bath, is ideally placed for combining the enjoyment of rural South West England with the delights of exploring the areas’ rich and varied history. Both Georgian Bath and access to The Cotswold Way are only 5 miles away. Situated only 15 minutes drive from the M4 we are also within easy reach of Bristol & Swindon (within 30 minutes) and Cardiff & Cheltenham (within 1 hour). The international airports of Bristol, Cardiff, Birmingham & Heathrow are all less than an hour and a half away.

Civilized Stag Party

By Michael Macfarlane on 16-Sep-2018

I booked this house for a (fairly civilised!) stag party. The house was huge, perfect amenities for cooking and keeping drinks cold and hot: an urn, icemaker and a chiller! Sue was on hand but did not need to contact as everything in the house worked well and was clean and comfortable. Very spacious communal spaces for dining and socialising too. Would recommend for any large groups wanting a living space in a quiet spot. Thank you Sue!

Family Fun Austrailian Visitors

By Gela Papahadajis on 31-Aug-2018

A beautiful old manor set in the country side... just wonderful!!! We came from Australia and had our English family from Bristol (18 in total) come to stay and everyone commented on how lovely the place was. We were all comfortable and it felt homey and Susan really made us feel welcome. At nights we made dinners using the big kitchen that is available and one of the nights had a BBQ at the back. In the morning we used the fresh laid eggs from Susan chicken coop which is on the property which the kids loved collecting. I really have no complaints about Susan's place.. only total recommendations!! This place suits big family's looking for a country getaway!

Susan was an outstanding host who went above and beyond to help our large educational group have a refreshing stay at her home. The house is beautiful, historic and excellently maintained. A super stay!
