The Haunted George Hotel
B6275, Piercebridge DL2 3SW
You’ll find the George Hotel situated along the B6275 near the village of Piercebridge.
The Grade II listed building dates back to the 17th century.
The former coaching inn was originally called the Bridge Inn.
Over the years the hotel has gained a reputation for being haunted.
Guests and members of staff alike have reported hearing the phantom voices of two people having a disagreement in the empty bar area.
Some people believe it’s the spirits of local farmers having an argument over the price of cattle whilst others think it’s the Jenkins brothers who owned the hotel in 1875 and were known for their bickering!
A ghostly apparition of a gentleman wearing old fashioned gaiters has been seen standing next to the George’s famous Grandfather Clock.
Room 11 is said to be haunted by the ghost of a young woman who was the daughter of one of the first landlords of the inn.
She had her heart broken and sadly committed suicide by hanging herself from a beam in the room.
Her apparition dressed in white shows itself to young men staying in the room during springtime and places her hand on their shoulders!Click Here to Stay in the George Hotel
