  • Now, here is a choice haunting if you please. Originally, this was a medieval manor house before becoming a hotel. After the Battle of Worcester, 1651, Charles 2nd was escaping with his staff, with the remainder of his army. He took shelter at this manor, then owned by a Royalist supporter. His ghost is reputed to haunt Bovey House, with has made infrequent manifestations. What he leaves behind is the odour of his lavender scented water throughout the building. Rather grimmer, the inn is also haunted by a headless apparition. The hotel retains much of its past, including the old well with tread wheels to bring up the water. Inside are Elizabethan panelling and a priest hole, with secret escape passages
