Trimnells House ~ B&B and Holiday Lettings

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.

Trimnells House has run for several successfully years as a B&B. ( Check us out on Tripadvisor.) We found our guests were often impressed by the house, village and gardens but did not have the time to make use of them so we have moved into guest accommodation so that our guests can make full use of these facilities. Many of our guests wanted to enjoy village life for a longer period. “Make it so” we said! Our village offers guests a slice of village life including accommodating pubs where you will be welcomed, a village shop, a peaceful lifestyle, a smile in the street, and all a stones throw from Bath with all its attractions.

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. 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 here:-https://www.facebook.com/6bellscolerne?fref=ts&ref=br_tf and here:-https://www.facebook.com/foxand.hounds.5?fref=ts

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!

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.

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.

This picture is of the famously lovely village of Castle Combe nearby.

Whilst the delights of Bath are close at hand, the village of Colerne itself offers many local amenities including a post office, hairdressers, newsagent, florist, grocery store and two traditional village pubs providing meals and refreshments, all reached within a five minute walk from the house. A short drive away, the picturesque villages of Castle Combe and Lacock and the local towns of Bradford-On-Avon and Corsham can be of great interest and provide many and varied dining opportunities.

Lacock is a village bequeathed to the National Trust and used for scenes in Cranford and the Harry Potter movies as well as being the site of Lacock Abbey and Museum where Henry Fox Talbot did pioneering work on photography.

Castle Combe has been described as the “the prettiest village in England” by many and was used in the film Warhorse. Locally many film and TV locations can be found. (See local activities for a list).

For the summer we have soft drinks and ice available from a chiller. We also have a games table, trampoline and fish pond which can be of interest to children. There is also a childrens play area in the village. (See local activities above for childrens interests). We have large rooms, gardens and an off street parking area all away from main roads.
