The Haunted Holt Hotel
Oxford Road, Bicester OX25 5QQ
Just outside the village of Steeple Aston along the Oxford Road at Hopcroft’s Holt you’ll find the historic Holt Hotel.
The Holt Hotel dates back to the 15th century when it started life as a coaching inn.
The notorious highwayman Claude Duval is believed to haunt the Holt Hotel.
He’s been seen walking the hotel’s corridors and appearing in bedrooms… he tends to like Room 3!
Members of staff and guests alike have reported hearing heavy phantom footsteps and unexplained eerie voices throughout the building.Click Here to Stay in the Holt 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.
