The Haunted Nutfield Priory
Nutfield Road, Redhill RH1 4EL
You’ll find Nutfield Priory just off the Nutfield Road to the east of the Surrey town of Redhill.
The Grade II listed building dates back to 1872.
The Victorian manor house is a mixture of Gothic and Neo-Tudor architectural styles created by the distinguished architect John Gibson.
Nutfield Priory is built on land that in the Middle Ages belonged to the Augustinian Reigate Priory.
During Henry VIII’s Dissolution of the Monasteries the land was seized by the Crown.
It was later given to Lord William Howard.
The Quaker Joshua Fielden bought the estate and commissioned John Gibson to build a new mansion house on the site.
Today, Nutfield Priory is a four star country house hotel and health spa.
It’s said to be haunted by the ghostly apparition of a nun.
But another ghostly female has also been witnessed at Nutfield Priory.
A spooked guest reported that she woke up in the middle of the night to find a ghostly apparition of a woman standing by her bedroom’s curtains watching her!
She described the ghostly lady as wearing a high neck dress with a bonnet.
The apparition disappeared when her boyfriend turned the lights on but soon afterwards the bathroom door opened on its own accord as though somebody invisible was walking through it!
The next day the couple were discussing the ghostly experience from the night before when suddenly the bathroom light flickered and went out.Click Here to Stay in the Nutfield Priory Hotel
