A plethora of spirits occupy this location. Among them is a lady who is seen looking out the window before walking to a bed and falling on it in, writhing in pain (she was believed to have been poisoned). A monk has been seen by the forest and garden, a little girl who fell from the battlements is said to remain there, and numerous other ghosts are seen and reported.

  1. In the 1970s I was staying at the holiday village Lelant. One extremely bright moonlit night I woke and peeped through the window. Some distance away between two chalets I saw a white vision, a woman in a long flowing nightgown, yet the trees were not moving, no wind, not even a breeze.
    The next day I went that way and had a look for what might have made me believe I had seen this woman, nothing, not even a washing line post!
