A very spooky place to visit. The tour guide was amazing and it was awesome value for money. Our godchildren, 5 and 7, loved it and the guide made them feel just as included as the adults. I'm a bit of a non believer in ghosts etc but genuinely felt like something spooky was going on, and my partner smelt... More

Amazing history, superb guide, atmospheric . A wonderful afternoon , finishing with Coffee and Cake in the Cafe. Also attended a paranormal evening here. Superbly organised from start to finish. Some strange happenings, value for money. If you want an unusual evening out, this is the place to go.

We visited here after being recommended it and we did arrive too late for one of the tours which meant we were too early for the next one (just be careful as they seem to run every hour so try to turn up just before the hour!! And they finish at 3pm) however we did grab lunch in the tearoom.... More

Stayed here for a week, lovelly accomodation. Friendly helpful staff and the tour of the manor was really interesting. If you like a quiet spot with just the hoot of owls at night and the cry of buzzards during the day then this is the place. Atmospheric location, lovelly gardens and a good tea shop too.

I have been here a few times now and have enjoyed every single visit. The histoy behind the place is fascinating. What I particularly like about the tours of Chambercombe Manor is that the guides will tailor it to suit you so if you're interested in the paranormal then they will take that focus, alternatively if you're more interested in...

Interesting (haunted) property. A little expensive £9 for guided tour which was interesting. Pleasant setting with lovely gardens and tea room

A dull day but not at Chambercombe. A cheery welcome, a nice small well stocked shop and an excellent licensed cafe. For only £5 (unless you are Friends of the Historic Houses Association - well worth while!) you get a free flow tour of a fascinating old manor house mentioned in the Domesday Book and set out mainly as a...

What an incredible setting and the house is just full of history. Loved the extensive gardens so well worth spending some time there. The house they say is haunted but didn't notice anything of the paranormal on my visit. Did enjoy some love?y tea and scones in the pleasant tea rooms though. Well worth a visit.

Lovely cream tea and interestiing house to tour. We got the local bus and it was quite a walk up hill then down hill but well worth it.
