At night, the sound of James II exile can be heard. Guests will hear the sounds of horses on cobblestone followed by people exiting or entering a stagecoach, the door of the coach slamming, and then the carriage will take off, followed by three bell chimes. Other spirits reported here are William III’s wife, Mary, and that of a man with an ‘evil-looking face’.
