The Haunted Three Crowns Hotel
High Street, Chagford TQ13 8A
Along Chagford’s High Street opposite the churchyard you’ll find the Grade II* listed Three Crowns Hotel.
The historic granite façade hotel dates back to the 13th century.
The Three Crowns has a reputation for being haunted since 1643 by the poet Sidney Godolphin.
At the time of the English Civil War Sidney was a Royalist officer.
He was shot in a skirmish in Chagford and it’s said he died on the doorstep of the Three Crowns.
One day, the hotel’s chef was scared witless after seeing the ghostly apparition of Sidney in full Royalist uniform standing in the doorway of the dining room!
