We visited here while on holiday at Butlins Minehead as my 11 year old son is increasingly hard to please but on hearing about Chambercombe Manor he was quite excited due to it being featured on Most Haunted and we visited on the Tuesday which is one of their guided tour days. On arriving we were met with a warm... More

This place has the most beautiful garden and the restaurant serves homemade soups, sandwiches, cakes, etc. at reasonable prices. I have been several times and have never been disappointed.

fascinating place to visit, a little gem in the middle of a residential part of time but like travelling back in time.

What a charming manor house. We went on a dull day so didn't spend alot of time in the grounds. The guided tour was so interesting..Didn't see any ghosts though!

Brilliant tour of the manor by the lady tour guide, cant remember her name unfortunately. definitely knew her stuff and although I don't believe in the paranormal I was very interested to hear about it.

Absolutely awful, too many items have been removed. I have been to visit year on year apart from a break of a few years. I found it flat and disappointing. Very few of the staff were as friendly as in the past. I would never recommend in the future

This is a very interesting old house with a fantastic history. We went on a Friday and didn't realise they didn't do guided tours on that day. It was £5.00 instead of the normal £9.75 because no tour was included. The gentleman who welcomed us as we arrived (David) was fantastic and gave us lots of information. There are also... More

I had a week's holiday in Laurel Dene cottage - which I believe is the smallest of 5 holiday cottages in the grounds. As it was just for myself and my dog there was plenty of room. The cottage was nicely furnished and clean, with everything you might need for a self catering holiday. The grounds are beautiful - really... More

We visited Chambercombe Manor during a weekend away in Ilfracombe. The house definitely has a spooky atmosphere and is full of history. We visited on a Friday so there were no guided tours but we were given plenty of information and insight by the staff on duty. We also enjoyed a couple of entertaining stories about all the lights being... More
