The Haunted Talbot Hotel
New Street, Oundle PE8 4EA
In the centre of the ancient market town of Oundle you’ll find the handsome Talbot Hotel.
The Talbot Hotel is very old, the timber frame of this Grade I listed building dates back to 638!
The rest of the Talbot Hotel was rebuilt using stonework from the ruins of Fotheringhay Castle in 1626.
Now, Mary Queen of Scots was executed at the nearby Fotheringhay Castle in 1587.
And it’s said that she haunts the staircase and many other rooms within the Talbot Hotel today.
One night, a guest at the hotel was scared witless after she was woken by something sitting on her bed!
And a ghostly face of a gaunt woman is often seen by spooked passers-by staring out of hotel’s windows.Click Here to Stay in the Talbot 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.
