About Property Manager
Hi I grew up in Bath. I purchased Trimnells House and moved to Colerne in 1991. I nursed until 2009, since when I have been offering guest accommodation. I do enjoy eating out and live music. I also enjoy seeing visitors have a memorable stay at Trimnells House. I have lots of information about the local area so please ask if you need anything.
Property Manager purchased this Chateau / Country House in 1991
Why Property Manager chose Colerne
This property is imposing and is visually pleasing.The rooms airy and spacious. The village is traditional,thriving and friendly. Offering this property enables me to share this experience with others. If you are a stag/hen party Trimnells offers a good environment to have a party, make a little noise, have a barbecue, make use of the garden for games. You can take a short walk to pubs that can look after large groups particularly if you make prior arrangements arrangements and book tables. Further afield are the nightclubs of Bath and Bristol. Why not take the plunge like a Roman and swim in the hot spring water at Bath Thermae Spa? If you are a family group. 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)! We are about 6 miles away from Castle Combe used for 'War Horse' and 'Stardust' movies. We are also about 6 miles from Lacock used in the 'Harry Potter' movies including Harry Potters classroom and his parents house. Further afield can be found Stonehenge, Avebury stone circle and Longleat. If they go to the Roman Baths they can walk where the Romans walked and there are some good hologram effects to give you an idea of what it was like. If you take the kids to the viewing point at the top of nearby Tog Hill they can see across Bristol and the Severn Estuary as far as the Brecon Beacons on a clear day. (Binoculars recommended).
What makes this Chateau / Country House unique
The best features about this property include the peace and quiet of the enclosed gardens and surrounding area. The architecture of the property which never fail to impress.
