The Haunted King’s Head Hotel
5 Cross Lanes, Launceston PL15 7RX
You’ll find the King’s Head Hotel situated on Cross Lanes in the middle of the village of Five Lanes.
The Grade II listed hotel dates back to 1623.
It’s said that the building was occupied by both Roundheads and Cavaliers during the English Civil War of 1642.
In the mid-17th century the pub was used as a posting stage for coaches but it was often frequented by smugglers and shadowy characters.
The King’s Head Hotel is said to be haunted by the ghost of a former landlady called Peggy Bray who comes back to see if her pub is being run correctly!
Her ghost has been heard walking along the corridor on the first floor.
Some guests have reported that they feel a chill near the doorway half way along the corridor where Peggy is said to walk.
The apparition of a ghostly girl has been seen in the bar area.
Apparently, she looks so life like that many people think she’s a real life person until she suddenly disappears into thin air!
Many guests staying in Room 3 have reported hearing an eerie tapping on the bedroom’s window.
But when they investigated they can’t find the cause of it!
