Top 3 haunted hotels in the UK

Jenai Laignel / 09 October 2014

While we can't guarantee there'll be a ghost log book as well as guest log book at these haunted hotels, we can promise they'll be a treat for the senses, rather than a trick.

Littlecote House Hotel, Berkshire

This historic haunted house dates back to Tudor times. It was also once a Roman settlement, so it's hardly surprising that there are a few resident ghosts at the hotel. In fact, it boasts the title of the third most haunted building in England.

The most common sighting is that of a black dog on the Jerusalem staircase. Apparently, when guests go to stroke the dog, their hand goes straight through it.

Aside from the spooky goings-on, Littlecote House Hotel is set within a staggering 113 acres of ground, with two excellent restaurants and a heated pool to enjoy.

Leeds Castle, Kent

Said by many to be "the loveliest castle in the world", could Leeds Castle be a haven for ghosts and ghouls, too?

It certainly has a rich past; it's been home to royalty, lords and ladies for around 900 years. An exclusive break in the Stable Courtyard Bedrooms will allow you to stay in the heart of the grounds, giving you a chance to explore the castle and all its mystery.

Bodelwyddan Castle, North Wales

Could it get any more dramatic than a stay at this Grade II-listed Victorian folly with stunning scenery over the Clywdian Mountains and 200 acres of Victorian parkland?

Bodelwyddan Castle was built around 1460 by the Humphreys family of Anglesey, and there have been numerous reports of ghostly sightings here, including the ghost of a soldier in one of the galleries.

Whether you are spooked or not, you'll certainly enjoy exploring the perfectly-manicured gardens and the host of entertainment on offer.
