 Mansion History


The mansion was built in 1471 by the Boughton family and became later known as the Boughton Baronets.


The building is believed to be plagued by the ghost of one handed Theodosius Boughton.  


Sir Theodosius was brutally murdered by his brother in law in a fit of rage and not long after this the hauntings began..


In the 18th century, members of the clergy captured his spirit in a bottle that had been blessed by a bishop and threw it in a lake.


Unfortunately, legend has it that the bottle was found by fishermen who unknowingly released the ghoul.


Even nowadays staff and guests report paranormal activities occurring around the hotel and the scowling spirit of a one armed man seems to take pleasure in scaring guests.


People hear disembodied voices and footsteps, as well as groaning, coming from the tower.


No one ever goes in the tower though.
