Bovey Castle Hotel

Bovey Castle Hotel

The hotel (pictured above) is reportedly home to a number of ghostly guests. These include a headless apparition, although this could be a fabrication of the "notorious" smugglers of Beer intent on keeping their illicit trade secret from prying eyes. The occasional smell of Lavender perfume has also been reported.
