Ebbingford Manor Unit 3451884

Ebbingford Manor holiday let consists of the main section of the manor. With the original main door of the manor entering into the large entrance hallway all private to this spacious holiday let. A four poster bed in the bedroom and kitchen/diner big enough to host a dinner party for 8, there is an air of luxuriousness to this accommodation.

About the property


Ebbingford Manor dates back some 850 years. Said to have the smallest chapel in England and once opened to the public, this manor now offers 2 delightfully romantic & interesting self-catering holiday lets. Both holiday lets cater for two people; one is the main section of the manor, so we call it Ebbingford Manor; the other is a smaller section of the manor which we have named Bay Cottage.

Bay Cottage is the first door you come to as you come up Ebbingfords' driveway, with its own off road parking space near to its front door. You enter straight into the living/dining room, a vaulted ceiling with a sky light makes this a lovely light room. It's walls combine beautiful old stone with wood panelling, a trait throughout this old manor. The Living/Dining room has a small oak dining table with two chairs; a sofa; wood burner; TV, CD/Radio with USB/Bluetooth. The bedroom has a kingsize bed, a small wardrobe with 3 drawers and further storage space under the bed. The kitchen has gas cooker, washing machine & microwave. The bathroom has a shower over a corner bath and toilet. The whole property is on the ground floor and only about 500ft total with gas central heating. Bed linen and towels supplied. Garden with table & two chairs. Dog are allowed, for small breeds only due to size of accommodation. The garden is not secure for dogs to roam freely.

Ebbingford Manor holiday let is located in the centre of the front court yard, with it's own parking space on the driveway, entering in to it's own spacious two storey entrance hall. Oak panelled walls, old beams, and archways adding to a wonderful ambience. Shuttered windows and wooden floors with rugs give a luxurious feel. Ground floor: Living room with wood burner, freeview Tv, Dvd, Cd; Dining room/kitchen with gas cooker, microwave, washing machine, tumble dryer. First floor: Bedroom with kingsize bed (four poster), Bathroom with shower over bath and toilet. Gas CH, bed linen and towels inc. WiFi available. Garden with table & two chairs. Unlike Bay Cottage, Ebbingford Manor is not dog friendly.

Located in the centre of town, Ebbingford is little known even in Bude, set quietly back in a secluded area, tucked away from the westerly winds under the lee of Efford Down, making it a wonderful sun trap on those clear days. Plenty to explore with coastal walks, sandy beaches, golf, fishing, surfing and swimming right on your doorstep. Plus Clovelly, Boscastle, Tintagel Castle, Rock & Padstow just 30 minute drives away.

Pub approx 100metres away, shop 200 metres & beach 400 metres. The manor is a 5 minute walk to town, passing the canal, local pub & shop on the way. Beach 400 metres away.

About Gina D'Angelo

The Stamp family have owned Ebbingford Manor and lived here in Bude for four generations.

The manor was first acquired by Sir Laurance Dudley-Stamp, his grandson, Jonathan Stamp is now the present owner.

Jonathan's career had kept him away from his home town of Bude for many years, travelling the world on cruise ships performing his solo juggling, unicycling, comedy show!

He has since reduced his time away by performing only on european cruises, flying out for only a few days at a time to join ships at ports mid-cruise. So he can now have more time with his new family, fiancé Gina and baby Siena, who joined them in 2013!

Jonathan has spent the past 10 years maintaining Munster Cottage and Ebbingford, adapting the beautiful manor to accommodate delightfully romantic & interesting self-catering holiday lets as well as providing a secluded home for his family.

Gina D'Angelo purchased this house in 1956

Why Gina D'Angelo chose North Cornwall

Located in the centre of town, Ebbingford is little known even in Bude. Set quietly back in a secluded area, tucked away from the westerly winds under the lee of Efford Down, making it a wonderful sun trap on those clear days.

Jonathan loved growing up here and since travelling the world with his career and living 8 years in Hawaii, Ebbingford and Bude were still where he dreamt of settling and bringing up his family.

Being a keen surfer, having Summerleaze beach a few minutes walk around the corner, with it's good reputation for surf is a huge bonus and having stunning coastal walks right on our doorstep is a joy.

Bude is a lovely small town with more Cornish attractions not far away, Clovelly, Boscastle, Tintagel Castle, Rock & Padstow just 30 minute drives away.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Eric S, Sheffield;

We very much enjoyed our week at Ebbingford Manor. Whilst it retains all the charm of a historic building, modern appliances have been added in a sympathetic manner and make staying at Ebbingford a joy.

It is excellently located a few hundred yards from Bude town centre and from its beaches - the walk along the canal to the beach in the evening to catch the sunset was a highlight.

We will certainly return for a further holiday.

539Lynne39, Manchester;

It was a pleasure and a privilege to holiday at Ebbingford Manor. Our expectations were exceeded by the quality of this holiday let. The owners Jon and Gina could not have been more welcoming. The location is ideal for walkers and holiday makers wishing to use the near by beaches (2 minutes walk) and local amenities.

We will certainly be going back to Bude and renting this property again.

Sarah LL, Twickenham;

Needed to get away to recharge our batteries and found the perfect location...we were able to relax in a beautiful, delightfully furnished property, with a wonderful log fire..the town itself had all we needed when we ventured out...enjoyed cooking meals in the well equipped kitchen and retreating to the warmth and comfort of the lounge.

The service offered by the hosts was excellent, even posting back our muddy boots we left behind..

We have absolutely no hesitation in recommending not only this fantastic property, but also the exhilarating walks along the coastal paths and the rewarding cream teas that followed..

Beautiful Manor House in a quiet secluded location

  • 5 of 5

Well appointed property with lots of character and charm. Plenty of space for two people just as described in the details. Friendly but unobtrusive owners always ready to help. Would highly recommend this property to friends and family.

Unique, spacious holiday let

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay and would recommend it for anyone looking for somewhere quiet, secluded yet walking distance to the local town. Its age is part of its charm and interest, yet it has all the mod cons you'd expect or need. The owner was very friendly and happy to help us with whatever we needed. Aside from the house itself, it's also in a great position being so close to town yet hidden from view, and there's lots around Bude and the other nearby villages to enjoy. Thank you for having us. :-)

Fabulous comfortable manor house, dripping with atmosphere and history

  • 5 of 5

Forget bland, modern self-catering holiday lets and live like a lord instead! We booked the central part of Ebbingford Manor for a week and loved it. It is comfortable and well-appointed with a spacious oak-panelled living room, kitchen/dining room with large dining table and leather couch, roomy bedroom with four-poster bed and a modern bathroom. Gina and Jon made us very welcome and were always available either on site (they live next-door) or on the end of a 'phone.

It is situated perfectly, set back from the road and screened by trees, so quiet and peaceful, but close to all amenities. Within five minutes walk are three pubs/hotels, a convenience store, the canal and river. The town centre is less than 10 minutes walk. There are many places to visit within less than an hour's drive - pretty villages like Clovelly, Boscastle and Port Isaac, and clean, sandy beaches for bathing and surfing. There are also many good walks along the canal and across the clifftops, along the coast.

We felt instantly at home - the manor instantly joined the favourites list and we hope to return again.

Very nice manor, lovely things to see in Cornwall

  • 3 of 5

A lot of space for two persons. Perfectly equipped bathroom and bedroom. Charming Manor

The kitchen should be better equipped if you want to cook there, we also missed a comfortable sofa in the living or sitting room. The owner still has things to do in order to realise a perfectly restored Manor. We enjoyed our stay

You can be Lord of the Manor

  • 4 of 5

Ebblingford Manor is a beautiful property with lots of room for two. Comfortable bed and well equipped kitchen. It really is very c lose to a five star a accommodation. Location is quiet but close to town and beach (walking). Sorting out the appliances, heat etc. Is a bit challenging, especially for Americans, as the manuals for such are not in the apartment. Except for some minor details it is a great vacation rental, and when will you ever stay in a home with 800 years of history? Recommended.

Ebbingford Manor exceeded all expectations and our New Year stay was perfect despite the wet weather

  • 5 of 5

This is a stunning place to stay and we can see why people return year after year . The history of the manor is really interesting and the photographs do not do justice to the reality .

Gina is so helpful in relation to answering questions and the booking . In addition her and Johnathon are always on hand if needed but you do not feel that they are imposing on your privacy.

The facilities are excellent and you have everything you need for a self catering break or alternatively you are in walking distance of the centre of Bude .

The weather was wet and yet whilst walking in the rain it was comforting to know that a hot shower / bath and the warmth of the woodburner was awaiting . Closing the shutters on the elements and opening the wine ensured a relaxing evening with the added bonus of a four poster bed.

We were also impressed with the generosity of allowing us to stay for as long as we liked on the day we checked out because no one was following us . This is extremely unusual at no extra cost .

We had a wonderful time and couldn't have wished for a greater start to 2016.

We will definitely return again and again
