Stay overnight in luxury accommodation with a drinks reception and a private guided ‘Most Haunted’ style tour of the Castle followed by a spooky ‘Chefs Table Feast’ dinner. You’ll then have the opportunity to take part in a paranormal investigation and vigils in various locations around the Castle or relax in the Music Room if séance aren’t your thing! After a busy night of feasting and investigation, breakfast the next morning will be held in the stunning Tudor Suite Dining Room.
