Browne Bushell, a former owner of the hotel, was executed with charges relating to piracy. He returned to the hall after his death and has been seen there many times since then, walking up and down staircases at the hall. Guests have also heard the clatter of footsteps up and down the staircases, even though no-one was there to be responsible for the sounds.
There has also been other strange phenomenon associated with the Hall over the years, including poltergeist activity, a strange shape gliding up and down the stairs, lights being switched on in an empty room, cleaners hearing voices whispering and the sounds of a small child crying in an empty room.
Bagdale Hall hotel is actually housed in three historical buildings, one of which is the atmospheric Tudor house that was built in 1516. Another of the buildings is named No. 4 Bagdale, and is a charming Georgian townhouse, and the remaining building is a large detached Georgian house which was built in around 1770. Whichever of the residences that you choose to stay in for your trip to Whitby, you’re sure to enjoy the historic and atmospheric surroundings.
