The Haunted Howfield Manor Hotel
Howfield Lane, Chartham Hatch CT4 7HQ
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.
