Ghost Hunt - Fairfield Manor Hotel


This fantastic building has many original features and rooms including the Library with its Jacobean headboard and fireplace dating back to 1756 and has served many purposes in its long history. With its dark panelled rooms and original grand staircase, the old part of the building is full of history and is waiting for us to explore.

The buildings have been the famous Fairfield Stud, a Sanatorium, a TB Hospital and children’s psychiatric hospital - and not forgetting it was originally a family home too.

Our guests have seen legs disappear on the grand staircase, heard disembodied voices, been touched and much, much more! There are rooms in the building that staff don’t like to enter alone, some guests prefer to stay in the extended building and will not take rooms in the old part of the hotel because of previous experiences there.

The Library is one of the older parts of the building and was once Matron’s office when the building was used as a Sanatorium. It was also possibly the room that was used for meetings and as the “gentlemen of the Manor’s” office and we have not been disappointed with the amount of activity here. During a Human Pendulum activity, previous guests have been deeply moved by their feelings and a sense of who was with them, this possible energy was also captured on camera. During Mirror Scrying activities, guests have witnessed transfiguration on more than one occasion which has left them amazed by their experience.

What secrets does The Fairfield Manor hold? Using traditional and modern methods of spirit communication, we want to unravel the history and talk to those who are willing or otherwise, who are still attached to the building. Why not join us and find out!
