Stay here if you want a venue for a stag/hen or family stay where you don't want to worry about making to much noise or mess (within limits)! You may also want to be in a friendly village with a pub where landlord Stuart serves up competitively priced food, drink and often free musical talent. There are also 2 clubs that do drinks and music that welcome visitors for a small entrance fee, they offer country friendliness, and competitively priced drinks I might add. The village attracts people from the surrounding area and can be buzzing at the weekend. It is not unknown for the likes of Peter Gabriel and Nick Mason to visit 'Jigsaw' founder John Robinson at his nearby home and wedding venue Euridge Manor. Celebrities often stay at Lucknam Park Hotel. Whether you see a helicopter landing...Stay here if you want a venue for a stag/hen or family stay where you don't want to worry about making to much noise or mess (within limits)!

The village attracts people from the surrounding area and can be buzzing at the weekend. It is not unknown for the likes of Peter Gabriel and Nick Mason to visit 'Jigsaw' founder John Robinson at his nearby home and wedding venue Euridge Manor. Celebrities often stay at Lucknam Park Hotel. Whether you see a helicopter landing or not, it may be worth a visit for their Michelin starred cuisine, often enjoyed by Nicolas Cage when he owned a house in Bath. I am told Robbie Williams enjoyed the pool in the past. Trimnells sometimes operates as a B&B (if its not booked for a holiday let) and we once had Kate Middletons parents stay here to attend a local wedding. They were turned away at the local pub for food because they were too busy and nobody immediately recognised them. That's how crazy it gets here folks! I could go on about the time a Texan billionaires daughter took over Lucknam Park Hotel for her wedding but that's another story...or how a guest bumped into local Ex Bath Rugby star Chris Lilley and went home with a team strip! Hopefully this gives you an idea of the ambience of the area. I will just mention that Colerne residents are known as Colerne donkeys. This relates to a story regarding the burial of a donkey in the graveyard with its hooves protruding. Don't ask me to explain, nor explain why there is no minute hand on the Church clock! Now to the blurb. I'm sorry if its a bit repetitive or the pictures are a bit blurred. Trimnells offers guests the chance to enjoy village life in a designated area of outstanding natural beauty. They can enjoy traffic free roads whilst being at the hub of nearby tourist attractions. 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 pub and whilst some upmarket villages can be snooty at times, this is not the case in Colerne. Local facilities include golf, clay pigeon shooting, quad bikes, go karts etc. On their walk to the pub guests may walk past the paper shop and notice the aperture in the wall to the side used to allow a projector beam to pass through. Colerne's equivalent to 'Cinema Paradiso' back in the old days! There is also a play area within the village. Last but not least. Families with children have particularly enjoyed staying at Trimnells. Children seem very excited when they arrive. Perhaps its the imposing and slightly 'Hogwarts' exterior of the house which they explore energetically before moving on to the walled garden with its fish pond, fruit trees and chicken run where they find our chickens living in a children's playhouse converted into a chicken house. Our hens (~20-25) are rescue hens from battery units who enjoy virtual freedom in a large run to the side of the house. Children can feed the chickens and collect the eggs and seem to enjoy just watching them. (They are like little dinosaurs strutting around complete with the odd fight)! If you want more information on some points, just send an enquiry. If you want to visit Bath you could go and see the new shiny shopping mall and enjoy the chain eateries or make use of the 'Bath Rewards Card' you will be supplied with that offers discounts on independent eating places and tourist attractions. I cant put a link here but if you search for BIGHA and find Bath Rewards card you will have more details. eg you can swim in the famous Bath hot mineral water and get 3 hours for the price of 2 midweek at Bath Therma Spa. You could also take advantage of our cheap rates if you book midweek. I would also recommend going on the Bath Frankenstein tour to find out what Bath was like when struggling authors like the Shelley's and Dickens frequented it. You may wish to contact the pub 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. More

About the neighbourhood
Trimnells House is located in the village of Colerne. Whilst the delights of Bath are close at hand, the village itself offers many local amenities including a post office, hairdressers, newsagent, florist, grocery store and traditional village pub 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.
Getting around
I recommend seeing Bath, Castle Combe and Lacock. Further afield you have Bristol, Stonehenge, Longleat, Cheddar Gorge, Glastonbury and many others but it all depends on how much time you have.
