The bar is located in what was once the library, and is haunted by a mischievous spirit. “I had been working in the bar for only six weeks when I got my first surprise; I was carrying a full tray of drinks over to some guests when a book suddenly flew out of the bookcase beside me, I was so shocked I dropped the lot. No-one was standing near the shelf, but somehow the book was picked up and literally thrown into the room.’Other ghostly going on at Ettington involve the spirits of two children, belonging to the Shirly family who drowned in the River Stour. A couple staying at the house for a weekend in the Stour Suite, woke up during the night to hear the sound of children crying. They even thought they saw figures from the window. After returning home the couple continued to hear children crying at night. So distressed by this the couple sort the help of the local Vicar. The Stour Suite appears to be the center of a lot of ghostly happenings. Lights switch on and off and a Grey Lady has also been seen in the suite.

A man staying in the suite one night was washing his hair and looked up, reflected in the mirror was a woman dressed in grey smock, ruff collar and cap who was sitting on the side of the bath.

Loves a good ghost story, especially whilst sat in front of an open log fire on a cold and dark winters night.
