Deep in the cellars a ghostly sighting of a dog has been reported along with several accounts of a poltergeist presence which makes itself known by throwing stones and moving objects. The ghostly figure of a man is seen wandering aimlessly around the dark foreboding rooms and a great sense of loss overwhelms anyone who glimpses this forlorn character.
The Old House is a Medieval Manor House, believed to date back to 1280. From the style of the architecture of the parts of the building and from tree-ring dating of some of the timbers still present, the present house at Donnington was probably built between 1288 and 1295.
Some of the features of the house along with tree-ring dating of the timbers in the roof show that the Manor House was heavily modernised around 1618. It appears that at this time, the downstairs storerooms were converted into a kitchen and a parlour. A new roof was put on and the rooms upstairs were remodelled with a new internal staircase. Externally, the most obvious addition from this period are the large rectangular mullioned windows.
From 1670 to 1960, the house was rented out as a tenant farm and Leicestershire County Council bought the Manor House in 1965 to preserve the building for future generations. The Manor House was opened as a museum in 1973.
