Whether it is spooky stories told by candlelight or full on scary movies, we all seem to love a bit of ghostly action. With its long and rich history and array of ancient buildings and structures, the UK has a wealth of locations to offer lovers of all things creepy. If you wish to pay a visit to a haunted location you may want to consider The Ancient Ram Inn in Gloucestershire.
Built in 1145, The Ancient Ram Inn can be found in the village of Wooton-under-Edge. The house is believed to be home to over 20 spectres that have been making their presence known to the guests for many years. Constructed on an ancient Pagan burial ground, the inn is inundated with guests throughout the year from curious travellers and holidaymakers to horror writers and ghost hunters.
The resident ghosts include a little girl called Rosie, a male known as Incubus and an unnamed high priestess. For those looking for a true scare the “Bishop’s Room” is said to be the site of the most paranormal activity. The site itself is said to be the location of many sinister happenings throughout the centuries including black magic rituals and suicide. The house was also used as a hideout for criminals in the 12th century. The property is widely considered to be the scariest place in the country. Yvette Fielding from TV show “Most Haunted” is said to have had her most terrifying experience there and the house is now officially included in the top ten most haunted places in the UK.
If you are a keen investigator or lover of paranormal phenomena, the inn is sure to be the perfect place for you. If, however, a whole night proves to be too much, you can drive just five miles away and park your motorhome in the less spooky Regents Park Stansby Touring Park. This small and family run site offers a friendly and accommodating service as well as easy access to Cheltenham Racecourse, Cheltenham City Centre and Gloucester. The park is surrounded by exquisite countryside and offers hill views on three sides of the Malvern Hills that rise above the Severn Valley. This incredible location attracts many walkers and photographers wishing to capture its natural beauty.
Back at the site you can enjoy the well-equipped facilities such as showers, toilets, disabled amenities, local grocery shops and a host of pubs and restaurants a short five minute drive away. You are welcome to relax in the evening and set up a barbecue and the site also welcomes dogs. If you are touring the UK for a fright-fest we can help you with our easy motorhome hire listings.
