What could be more exciting than spending a long weekend at an old farmhouse in the beautiful Peak District, delving into the mysterious world of Ghosts, Myths and Legends. Spend the days relaxing, and taking part in various spiritual workshops and discussions, whilst soaking up the atmosphere of this old house? As the night draws in after a homecooked meal, prepare yourself for some ghost hunting activities, including an off site location booked just for you to investigate.

Our Ghosts, Myths and Legends weekend at This wonderful old Farmhouse is sure delight those who attend, and when you see what we have planned for you, you will see just why!

Situated at the bottom of a valley surrounded by an ancient wood and cool fast flowing stream in the Staffordshire Peak District, your accommodation for the weekend will be a gorgeous old farmhouse built in 1730 – which according to the resident cleaner, has a ghost or two of its own. Perhaps we will discover the story of these resident spirits over the course of the weekend?

Each of the 7 bedrooms are all en-suite with shower, toilet and sink, Large screen TV with freeview. Each room is decorated to the highest level of country cottage comfort, with lots of space for relaxing after the day’s activities. On site we also have a large sitting room with SKY T.V, large dining area and spacious private garden – complete with it’s own large heated hot tub, plus a private spring cascading into a pool, comfortable garden furniture and even a detached games room located in a stone outbuilding.

Reported Ghosts

Ford Green Hall
A man is often seen around the hall wearing period costume and carrying a silver topped cane. Visitors have often assumed that he is an actor until other people in the group inform them that they haven’t seen him, and the staff tell them that there are no re-enactors around at that time. The man has also been seen numerous times by the past curator of the museum. Could this be the spirit of William Ford who was known to use a similar cane? Imagine the stories he could tell!

A spirit of a woman has been seen in a bedroom and it seems she appears through a brick wall. This wall is not an original feature and seems to be in place of a staircase. Is the lady simply a residual energy reliving her life whilst using the stairs; or is she a spirit that is waiting for the right person to tell her story too!

There is also a man who has been seen standing at the top of the attic stairs, he wears a red coat and stands with his hands on his hips. Is he simply observing his house guests or is he waiting to punish anyone who steps out of place.

The ghost of a cat is said to often appear and Haunted Houses guests themselves have encountered him, running into rooms but on searching is nowhere to be found. The buildings’ staff report heavy footsteps coming from above and spinning wheels on display have been seen to move, seemingly all by themselves. Which spirit will you encounter when you join Haunted Houses for a ghost hunt at this historic and beautiful location in Stoke on Trent.

Lud’s Church
Said to be haunted by the spirit of a young pagan girl of great beauty, Can we connect with her on our journey into this underworld crevasse.

Venue History

Your Farm House Accomodation
Built in 1730 to be used as a Farm House, A large mill was also built around this time within it’s grounds. Documented in old travel books as being sited in one of the most attractive areas of the country.

Ford Green Hall
Ford Green Hall is a Grade II listed building which was erected as a 17th Century timber framed yeoman farmhouse. It was built in 1624 for Hugh Ford. The Ford family lived here for 200 years; it was then divided into three areas which housed four cottages. It was during this period that the distinctive timber frame was covered in white stucco.

It is now a museum run by a charitable organisation that gives an insight into how life would have been in the 17th Century and is Stoke-on-Trent’s oldest surviving building. Although the rooms today appear to take you back in time, they are not shown how they used to be in Mr. Fords’ time. Can you reach out to spirit to uncover the true usage of these rooms?

Lud’s Church
A natural crevice of immense beauty cut into the earth. Ageless and ancient, said to be a site of pagan worship and the location noted in the oldest and best known Medieval poem, Sir Gawain and the Green Knight – Learn all about this story on your weekend.
