Pin It

Now well known as England’s most haunted village (and also as the filming location of ‘The Darling Buds of May’), Pluckley is a peaceful, picturesque Kentish village surrounded by an oak tree-dotted patchwork of farmland, bluebell woods and oast houses – except on Hallowe’en, when it attracts disproportionate numbers of ghost-hunting visitors and the local police have to stay out all night to explain that the haunted houses belong to people and there are no ghost tour guides and spook-themed entertainments. Fortunately, though, if you choose to stay at Elvey Farm, most people will think you’re there for the luxurious bathrooms, stylish blend of modern, comfy furniture with period features and hearty, seasonal Kentish food, so you can wander about all night and watch for spectral appearances with total impunity. If you come over all chilly, though, simply snuggle up with a hot chocolate and wait… you may well encounter the hotel’s very own ghost – the ‘weeping wanderer’!
