The Haunted Colwick Hall Hotel
Colwick Park, Racecourse Road, Nottingham NG2 4BH
Just outside Nottingham is the stunning Grade II* listed Colwick Hall Hotel.
Colwick Hall Hotel is a Palladian style Georgian country house which dates backs to 1775.
It’s famous for being the ancestral home of the English poet Lord Byron.
The hall is stacked in history so you probably won’t be too surprised if I told you it’s reputed to be haunted.
During the Second Reform Bill disturbances in 1832 a mob stormed Colwick Hall setting fire to it and looting it.
Mary Ann Chaworth hid from the mob with her daughter all night in the pouring behind some shrubbery in the grounds of the hall.
This shocking episode was too much for her as she died four months later at Wiverton Hall.
It’s now said that her ghost haunts the hall…
Witnesses have seen her ghostly apparition in the hall’s grounds trying to hide behind trees and bushes!
The hall itself is also said to be haunted…
Members of staff and visitors alike have reported hearing eerie footsteps walking along the hall’s corridors as well as phantom children laughing and strange voices in the servants’ quarters.Click Here to Stay in the Colwick Hall 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.
