Levens Hall

Bleaze Hall

Bleaze Hall is situated at Old Hutton, four miles outside of Kendal. It is privately owned and NOT open to the public. According to the BBC Doomsday Reloaded, "An extension built by Roger Boatman in 1603 converted the existing rectangular shaped Hall into an 'H' shape. However much of the building was destroyed in the fire of 1840 leaving only the middle of the 'H' and one side still standing."


It is reputed to be haunted by the ghost of a maiden, "old, fleeting shadows", and a phantom funeral which relates to the aforementioned maiden who died brokenhearted when her lover failed to return from a Crusade.

Levens Hall

The Hall (pictured above) is allegedly haunted by a Grey Lady that is thought to be a former nanny, as she only appears when children are present; a phantom dog; and a lady in pink.


A curse was once laid on the owners of the Hall that strangers will separate them from their lands, and no heir will succeed his father until a white doe is born in the park and the waters of the River Kent (that flows nearby) are still.

Sizergh Castle and Garden

Sizergh Castle and Garden is a stately home and garden situated about 4 miles south of Kendal. The castle is a grade I listed building and is in the care of the National Trust. It is currently the home of the Hornyold-Strickland family, having been in the hands of the Stricklands since 1239.


The castle is supposedly haunted by the guant spirit of the wife of the jealous Gervase Deincourt, who was kept locked up whilst he was battling the Scots. He incarcerated her due to her beauty and his inability to trust anyone else to try and woo her. Her ghost has been sighted in the castle and her sobs have also been reported echoing the corridors.
