  • An attractive old coaching inn, the Ivy House is more than two centuries old. Numerous old pubs have “ivy” in the name since the ivy leaf was a devotion to Bacchus, the Roman God of Wine. Folklore had it that ivy mixed in heated water was a cure for intoxication. There are great reports of no less than two apparitions frequenting the Ivy House. The ghosts are a man accompanied by a woman. They stroll deliberately through the hotel. They are dressed in dark clothes of the Victorian period. There have additionally been recorded subtle elements of a ghostly stagecoach passing the Ivy House to the sound of the rattling of iron-shod wheels.
