The Haunted Chilston Park
Sandway, Lenham ME17 2BE
In the Kent countryside, close to the village of Boughton Malherbe, you’ll find the country house of Chilston Park.
The Grade I listed Chilston Park dates back to the 15th century and is today run as a country house hotel.
The hotel sits in its own beautiful Grade II listed parkland.
As with many old country houses in England Chilston Park has a ghostly tale to tell…
In the 1990s, a hotel member of staff was spooked one day as she walked up the staircase and saw the ghostly apparition of a man in 18th century dress.
She described him as wearing the clothing of a footman.
When she discussed her ghostly sighting with her colleagues she discovered that the phantom footman was a common sight at the hotel!Click Here to Stay in the Chilston Park Hotel
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.
