Supposedly one of the most haunted locations in the United Kingdom, apparitions have appeared in photographs, objects have moved on their own, and out-of-place-looking figures have been witnessed all over the grounds of this house. Supposedly, a monk and nun tried to elope around here, but were caught and killed by their disapproving elders. One room, “The Blue Room”, has had two separate deaths occur; other reports tell of a group of nuns walking somewhere along the side of the building. Unfortunately, most the building burned down, but the remains of it is still active with ghostly energy.
