The Haunted Anchor Inn, Cowes
1-3 High Street, Cowes PO31 7SA
You’ll find the Anchor Inn located on Cowes High Street.
The Grade II listed building dates back to 1704 when it was originally called the House of the Three Trumpeters.
It was once the main coaching inn for Cowes.
The pub changed its name to the Anchor in the early 1820s.
The old stables which once stood separate to the main building have now been incorporated within the Anchor’s main building and are now called the Stable Bar.
Local legend states that a young broken hearted lad tragically committed suicide in the stables.
His ghost is now said to haunt the Anchor Inn.
Witnesses describe him as being fair-haired and wearing a white shirt together with dark trousers!Click Here to Stay in the Anchor Inn
FEATURED HAUNTED HOTEL: The Black Boy Inn, Caernarfon
To the rear of the Black Boy there was once a convent which probably accounts for the many sightings of a ghostly nun seen walking through the building.
Many guests have heard the sound of a phantom child crying in one of the inn’s bedrooms.
Apparently, if you ask whether the child is OK it stops crying!
Members of staff and punters alike have reported seeing a ghostly figure of a man sitting in the bar area of the pub just watching people.
And a senior member of staff was certain they saw a ghostly apparition of a woman in the bar area when they were working late one night.
