Guys Cliffe House
Guys Cliffe House5.69km from Abbey Fields

Guy's Cliffe House in Warwick is a haunted gothic mansion. Used as a Masonic Lodge it has an eerie and uncomfortable feeling about it. The building itself has many areas to investigate with caves, cellars, house ruins and a Masonic Temple which is particularly active. Shapes are often seen wandering around during a vigil in this area. This building can be a terrifying experience and has delivered some phenomenal poltergeist activity on previous ghost hunts.
