Book Haunted Inns and Hotels in North Dorset

Crown Hotel

West Street, Winterborne Stickland

A very fine hotel with all the appearance of a former manor house, the Crown Hotel has a number of apparitions around the building that are seen both at night and during the day. One ghostly woman has been witnessed many times on the first floor before disappearing after a few seconds. Reports claim that she is dressed in a black crinoline dress, has a rather stern face and is of an upright bearing. Several employees have followed another woman in black to one particular room as she appears odd but when they open the door to that room it is empty. The ghost of a highwayman has been witnessed on many occasions standing in the courtyard and a small bridge near the hotel is haunted by a woman who committed suicide and a phantom hound that could be a shuck.
