Studley Castle

Studley, Warwickshire, England

Studley Castle is not a castle as such but sits close to the site of a 16th century medieval house; it is a grand Gothic Revival country house, designed by Samuel Beazley and completed in 1836. It is currently a hotel but its former uses have included a horicultural college for ladies and offices for Leyland and Rover Cars.

Tracey and Rachel visited the hotel for a medieval feast, which was good fun. The entertainment was enjoyable and the company, excellent. Having been allocated a reputedly haunted room high in the tower, we were eager to record during our stay and we were not to be disappointed with the results. It will be interesting to revisit the castle after its recent refit and see if the alterations have encouraged phenomena, as sometimes happens.
