Best Western Lord Haldon Hotel
Originally this was the home of the aristocratic Haldon family but it is now a hotel. An early Lord Haldon seduced a cleaner who became pregnant. When he refused to have any more to do with her, the cleaner drowned herself in a garden pool. Witnesses see her weeping ghost wandering through the hotel dressed in soaking wet 18th century clothing . According to Archie Winckworth, a former owner of Dunchideock House, there is buried treasure in the village.
