If you don't believe in ghosts, you will after a visit to the manor. Many real experiences of ghostly goings-on. Fascinating smuggling history. Lovely cafe with space to sit outside.

Went on a guided tour of this interesting old building escorted by a very knowlegable volunteer of the charitable trust which runs & maintains the property very well indeed. I think we gained by taking the guide version of the visit as our guide pointed out lots of things we would have missed or did not appreciate the relevance of,... More

The house is run by a charitable trust, rather than National Trust or English Heritage. This means that you are allowed to touch things, sit on the chairs, and take photographs with a flash. The staff were all very friendly and the volunteer who showed us around the house had a good knowledge of its history. The place is quite... More

Really enjoyed this. We could really do with a guided tour than a tour on our own so we can see what we notice ourselves.

We visited here and had a tour of the house. Without a tour, I can't say many would enjoy the house as much, but the guide was very good and told some fascinating stories. The house certainly has a long history, but it didn't feel haunted. However, the stories of spirits and ghosts made the tour so much more interesting... More

Visited Chambercombe Manor whilst on holiday in Ilframcombe. We had tea in the tea rooms which was good, and then had a guided tour around the house. Very informative guide, and an interesting place to visit if you are near Ilframcombe.

Massive thump on the door when we went in, then some dead guy grabbing me round the thighs, the tour guide was brilliant as well.

Recently visited Chambercombe Manor whilst on holiday in Ilfracombe. Very interesting guided tour. I was in the dressing room listening to the Guide when I kept having to turn round as I thought there was a draught coming from an open window behind me, the window was completely shut. When the party moved to the next room the 'chilly' feeling... More

Been to Chambercombe Manor on two or three occasions. It was featured on Most Haunted on Living TV some years ago. Really interesting and plenty of historical value. The little cafe outside of the manor is really lovely and has quite a varied menu for a small place.
