Padstow, Cornwall

This impressive stone-built house in Padstow stands nearly on the site of Bodmin priory, set against a backdrop of rugged coastline and with Bodmin Moor to the East. The home has remained in the hands of the same family for more than 400 years, but was used as a base for American serviceman during World War II.

It is supposed to be haunted by many different ghosts including the spirit of a young scullery boy who has been seen running around the kitchen. There are also two female ghosts who have been spotted on the main staircase, one dressed in grey, the other in green.
