The Haunted Globe Hotel
34 Fore Street, Topsham EX3 0HR
You’ll find the Globe Hotel along Fore Street in Topsham.
The Grade II listed hotel dates back to the late 18th century when the Harrison family combined several buildings into one and added a Georgian façade.
The Globe became a coaching inn in the 1830s and was a stop off for coaches traveling between Lyme Regis, Salisbury and London.
In the summer of 1932 an American gentleman was staying at the Globe Hotel.
He reported that he was awoken several times in the night by an eerie swirling sound which sounded like someone was waving silk scarves in the air.
This eerie sound was also heard by the woman guest in the next room!Click Here to Stay in the Globe 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.
