Tansy bedroom is mentioned in a ghost book (nothing to do with the hotel) as having a black habited monk making his presence felt in the room. Seen to come from the exit from St Margaret’s courtyard, a black dressed figure walks across and disappears into the yew tree. The same figure is seen to cross from St Margaret’s across the courtyard to the laundry store area. A priest is believed to have walked from the direction of the Great Hall into the Library and disappear (they used to walk from the Great Hall to the tower to go down into the cloisters i.e. where the fireplace is now positioned in the Library).

Lavender bedroom – recently when one of the housekeepers was kneeling down facing the mirror in the bedroom, which faces the bathroom, she became aware of someone in the bathroom and began a conversation believing another housekeeper was there, with no reply. She had a more determined look and there was no-one there!

Rose bedroom – When entering the door, a shadow movement on the wall made one lady look up the corridor to Jasmine bedroom but no sighting. Over the Christmas period of 2003 one guest complained repeatedly overnight of a baby crying which kept her awake. No babies were in the adjoining rooms

All bedrooms are beautifully decorated to the highest standards, with great care taken to enhance their natural beauty. All bedrooms are individual and vary in shape and sizes, designed to provide a relaxing haven full of knickknacks (and little rubber ducks!).Set in seventy-seven acres of tranquil parkland, Hazlewood Castle is steeped in a history of fortified knights dating back before 1086.
