The Haunted Old Stocks Hotel
The Square, Stow-on-the-Wold GL54 1AF
The hotel dates back to the 17th century when it was a rather fine townhouse.
The hotel overlooks the green which has some old stocks on it…
I guess that’s where the hotel gets its name from!
The Old Stocks Hotel is said to be haunted by a phantom pianist who has been heard playing eerie 1920s style music in the middle of the night.
The strange this is…
The hotel doesn’t have a piano!
Spooked members of staff and guests alike have witnesses a ghostly apparition of an old man in the bar area.
They describe him as being grey haired and dressed in a black suit with a dog collar but has a kind smile.
Many believe the old man is the spirit of a former vicar from the nearby church!Click Here to Stay in the Old Stocks 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.
