The man responsible for burying treasure in a subterranean passage allegedly haunts the castle. According to legend, eagles guard the treasure. There are also reports of a “venerable gentleman in full dress suit of the time of Charles I” being seen. He was reported during the eighteenth century in some of the rooms and in the grounds.
The castle is also supposedly haunted by a White Lady, searching for the body of her son she lost when he drowned in a pool nearby many centuries ago.
