HALLOWEEN at Hazlewood

Tansy bedroom is mentioned in a ghost book (nothing to do with the hotel) as having a black habited monk making his presence felt in the room.

Seen to come from the exit from St Margaret's courtyard, a black dressed figure walks across and disappears into the yew tree.

The same figure is often seen to cross from St Margaret's across the courtyard to the laundry store area.

A voice saying 'goodnight' was heard from Cookery School door to Alison Benson-Smith one night when she was leaving the Restaurant Anise to enter Reception but no-one was there.

A priest is believed to have walked from the direction of the Great Hall into the Library and disappear (they used to walk from the Great Hall to the tower to go down into the cloisters i.e. where the fireplace is now positioned in the Library).

Lavender bedroom - When one of the housekeepers recently was knelt down facing the mirror in the bedroom which faces the bathroom, she became aware of someone in the bathroom and began a conversation believing another housekeeper was there, with no reply. She had a more determined look and there was no-one there!

Rose bedroom - When entering the door, a shadow movement on the wall made one lady look up the corridor to Jasmine bedroom but nothing was there...

Over the Christmas period of 2003 one guest complained repeatedly overnight of a baby crying which kept her awake. However, no babies were in the adjoining rooms.


This special Halloween WeekendHaunts event will begin with your arrival at the stunning Hazlewood Castle on the afternoon of Saturday 30th October where you can explore the area or just relax in the lovely surrounds of the luxurious Hazlewood Castle.
