Crag Y Nos Castle was completed in 1843 and became the home of the Powell family. However, the family were rumoured to be cursed after tragedy struck time and time again. Captain Powell lost his youngest son to cholera in 1851. Captain Powell himself died in 1862, but not before he also witnessed the death of his wife and youngest daughter. In 1864, his eldest son was killed in a hunting accident whilst in the Isle Of Wight.
In 1878, the castle was purchased by world famous opera star Adelina Patti. She made vast improvements to the castle, adding the North and South wings, as well as the clock tower, conservatory, theatre and winter garden.
Following Adelina’s dead in 1919, the castle became a tuberculosis sanatorium called the Adelina Patti Hospital. It opened in 1922 and continued until 1959 when it became a hospital for the elderly. The hospital closed in 1986 and now operates as a boutique hotel.
The tales of hauntings from Crag Y Nos Castle are endless! There doesn’t seem to be a room that isn’t haunted. The list of spirits is too long to mention here and the reports of activity are countless. With so many deaths having occurred here, is it any surprise?
The castle is haunted. So much so, that it has its very own separate website from the main, dedicated solely to the ghosts and hauntings.
Do you dare spend the night in this insanely haunted old castle? Then what are you waiting for?
