It’s October which means we’re waist-deep in spooky season activities and celebrations, but if you haven’t made plans for the weekend then why not try a trip away?
Halloween is a great time for a mini-break as you can make the most out of ghoulish events up and down the country.
And, considering how old the UK is we have hotels and inns all over the shop which claim to be haunted by ghosts from the past.
October 31 is this weekend though so you’d best get booking if you want to go on a scary weekend away.
Luckily, online booking platform, eviivo, has compiled a list of six spooky staycation properties to give thrill seekers a place to experience some of the best haunted hostelries the UK has to offer.
Amidst all the ghosts and ghouls, these independent properties offer their guests delicious breakfasts, comfortable bedrooms and memorable stays.
Check them out below:
The Woolpack Inn, Kent
Situated in the pretty village of Chilham, The Woolpack Inn sits at the bottom of a hill beneath a spectacular castle and has been offering a warm welcome to weary travellers for centuries.
Seriously, this hotel opened its doors in 1488 so it’s riddled with incredible history.
It’s said that the accommodation is haunted by ‘The Grey Lady’ – but don’t worry, she’s a friendly spirit who wanders the older parts of the building.
A one night stay will cost from £95.
Cridford Inn, Devon
One of the oldest inns in the country, The Cridford Inn dates back to 825AD and previously served as a nunnery, then a farm.
No stranger to supernatural activity, the inn is home to two ghosts, one which is believed to be a nun from the early years of the site and the other a Cavalier from the village’s conflict in the English Civil war.
A one night stay will cost from £119.90.
The Shoe Inn, Hampshire
On the edge of the New Forest National Park, the Shoe Inn was once the haunt of highwaymen – and is home to the ghost of one, who was caught at the inn and hanged.
Now offering five comfortable rooms and quality food, the inn is a great place from which to explore the countryside and the nearby cities of Salisbury and Southampton.
A one night stay will cost from £70.
The Brocket Arms, Hertfordshire
The Brocket Arms is a small and intimate country pub built in the 14 th century and retaining many of its original features.
With five ensuite doubles and a twin, guests won’t want to leave.
Indeed, one guest refuses to check out – legend has it that a priest was tried and hanged in the building and has haunted it ever since.
A one night stay will cost from £110.
The Old Ram Inn, Norfolk
This 17 th century coaching inn in the beautiful village of Tivetshall St Mary offers guests the perfect place to stay deep in the South Norfolk countryside.
For those looking for a taste of the paranormal alongside their pint, The Old Ram is home to a female spirit called Rose, whose presence has been felt by many staff and guests.
A one night stay will cost from £115.
The Old Crown, West Midlands
Birmingham’s oldest secular building, dating from 1368, stands proud in Digbeth in the heart of the city.
After witnessing centuries of history, it is no stranger to ghostly goings-on and is said to be haunted by various ghosts, with sightings late at night of spirits dressed in Victorian attire and spooky shadows moving through the walls.
A one night stay will cost from £60.
