The Haunted Cross Keys Inn
Tebay, Penrith CA10 3UY
You’ll find the Cross Keys Inn situated along the A685 in the village of Tebay.
The former coaching inn dates back to the 16th century.
The Cross Keys is said to be haunted by a female ghost called Mary Baynes aka the Tebay Witch.
Mary was a local elderly woman who died suddenly in 1811 after a furious row with Ned Sisson, the landlord of the Cross Keys, after his dog had killed her favourite cat.
Witnesses have reported seeing Mary’s ghostly apparition in the bedrooms of the Cross Keys.
They say that she’s dressed in blue and blame her for moving their makeup and toiletries around.
Other paranormal activity that’s been reported at the inn include glasses suddenly exploding, remote controls falling from shelves on their own accord, bedroom doors being locked from the inside and an optical measure sliding across the bar top all by itself!Click Here to Stay in the Cross Keys Inn
