MEAL AND OVERNIGHT STAY!
The Castle claims to have strong paranormal phenomena, in particular the haunting of Patti, her second husband and the object of her affection, composer Rossini. The Theatre room and beneath the stage area are believed to be very active (our last visit under the stage gave us all an experience we’ll never forget!). The Castle was also once used as a childrens ward to those children suffering from TB. The recovery rate was extremely low and many children never left. The Top Childrens Ward is the most active room in the building and guests can investigate the room where several beds have been laid out (sleep there if you dare?!)There are other rooms to investigate, including Patti’s bedroom, upper floor rooms and one of the most active places when we were last there was the cellars. A guest had a piece of equipment fly out of his hands! MORE INFO….

Castell Coch was designed by William Burgess to provide a second retreat for the Marquess. The outcome, a castle with dazzling ceilings and lavish furnishings in a majestic setting.
