The new venue has also been said to be the perfect setting for some paranormal activity, as the castle has earned a reputation for being haunted by a number of spirits, including the previous owner Winifred Hesketh, the Countess of Dundonald who died in 1924.

Other stories include locals who believe that the spirit of a servant girl who died falling off a horse also haunts the area. While others say ghosts of former caretakers have been seen around the 200-year-old castle which spreads across 250 acres.
