My place is close to Bath, Castle Combe, Lacock and within a country village.. You’ll love my place because of the atmosphere of quiet ambience complete with country pubs within walking distance that serve good food and all within a short car journey to many places of interest. Trimnells House has large en suited rooms that are ideally suited for sharing groups. The accommodation is on the ground and first floors. It does not include the second (top) floor or the side single story annex.
Trimnells offers guests the chance to enjoy village life in a designated area of outstanding natural beauty. They can walk to country pubs in a friendly unspoiled village just off the tourist track where visitors of all kinds are welcomed including many overseas visitors who 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 pidgeon 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 peaceful 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.
People have used the house and quiet gardens as a backdrop for videoed 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 (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN). 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.
