The Haunted Ragged Cot
Cirencester Road, Minchinhampton GL6 8PE
The historic Ragged Cot Inn situated on the Cirencester Road just outside the ancient market town of Minchinhampton dates back to the 17th century when it was first a coaching inn.
There have been a couple of ghosts reported at the Ragged Cot Inn.
In 1760, an ex-landlord of the Ragged Cot Inn called Bill Clavers was hung for the murder of his wife and child.
Some believe that it’s this trio which haunts the Ragged Cot Inn today!Click Here to Stay in the Ragged Cot
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.
