This Georgian manor house is known as the oldest inn in Dorset, and is rumoured to be haunted by two apparitions. The first is a lady in a flowing black dress who has been seen in the hallway and in rooms on the first floor. The second apparition is a highwayman who was shot dead in the courtyard, and has been seen wandering around before vanishing.
