The Haunted Golden Lion Hotel
Market Hill, Market Lane, Saint Ives PE27 5AL
The 18th century Golden Lion Hotel in the market town of St Ives has a reputation for being very haunted…
The ghost of the Green Lady is said to be responsible for opening and closing doors and ringing bells.
Her ghost has also been accused of pulling the sheets off the beds in Room 13!
On one occasion, an apparition of a lady wearing a green dress was seen by a terrified witness in Room 12.
A ghostly cavalier has also been witnessed roaming around the building.
One day a maid saw a ghostly figure walk along the corridor and vanish through the wall.
A few seconds later, a terrified guest came running out of a room saying that they’ve seen a ghostly apparition of a man dressed in a Royalist uniform enter the room through the wall and then just vanish into thin air!
The strange thing is…
Local legend says the hotel has a reputation for the ghost of Oliver Cromwell turning up.
And we all know that he was a Parliamentarian!
