Chambercombe Manor has a fascinating history spanning centuries. The guided tour offers really interesting insights, although the over-emphasis on it being a "haunted house" is disappointing, the place doesn't need that to sell itself. I would say however not to rely on the website for opening times, we recently visited specifically to have some lunch in the café having checked... More

A good place to visit if you fancy a relaxed potter but we didn't see any ghosts at the haunted manor! The staff are friendly and encourage you to take your time wandering through the house which was interesting. We enjoyed coffee and cake in the tea room afterwards.

It had its own entrance and parking for two cars outside the gate and one car inside in the courtyard itself. The courtyard itself is a small private enclosed garden so our dog could be let out with out fear of her... More

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.
