The Haunted Howfield Manor Hotel
Howfield Lane, Chartham Hatch CT4 7HQ
Along Howfield Lane on the outskirts of the Kent village of Chartham you’ll find the Howfield Manor Hotel.
The Grade II listed building is an old 12th century country manor house.
It’s reputed to be haunted by the ghost of a monk.
You see, the manor house was built on the site of a monastery which tragically burnt down.
During that fire one of the residential monks was trapped inside and one of his fellow monks ran into the burning building to rescue him.
During the rescue the brave monk was severely burnt and later died from his injuries.
The ghost of that brave monk is now said to haunt the manor house today!
Spooked visitors to the manor house have also reported hearing the phantom sound of monks chanting.Click Here to Stay in the Howfield Manor 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.
