In the village of Combe Martin you’ll find the unique Pack O’Cards Inn.
Legend states that the Grade II listed hotel was built by George Ley after he won a large amount of money by playing cards in 1690.
The hotel has four floors which are said to represent the four card suits and thirteen rooms which represent the number of cards in a suit.
The hotel also has a reputation for being haunted…
Guests and members of staff alike have seen the ghostly apparitions of a man with a long beard and a woman in a white long flowing gown.
Two more ghosts are said to haunt the hotel, both are victims of the press gang.
It’s said that one young lad died of fright whilst hiding from the press gang and the other was killed during a fight with the press gang!
