The Haunted Elms Hotel
London Road, Retford DN22 7DX
Along the London Road in the market town of Retford is the historic Elms Hotel.
The Elms Hotel is a Grade II listed Georgian house which dates back to 1792.
During the Second World War the house was used by the army.
One day, a soldier on guard duty was scared witless when he witnessed the ghostly apparition of an elderly woman wearing a Victorian dress glide across the grounds of the house before vanishing into thin air!Click Here to Stay in the Elms 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.
