Ghost Hunting, Hauntings and the Paranormal tours at The Oval in Dunster
Built in 1366 and oozing history, where better to head for a ghost-hunting short break than The Oval cottage in Dunster? We’ve teamed up with our friends at Extours to curate an exclusive special short stay with a supernatural twist exclusively for our guests.
The holiday includes three nights of self-catering at The Oval cottage in Dunster and two private evening ghost walks and paranormal investigations in Dunster and Watchet over two evenings. We provide the equipment to help you detect spiritual activity in some of the spookiest spots on Exmoor.
Bobbie from Extours has a passion for local history and the paranormal. His ghost walks around Exmoor sell out fast, so we’re delighted he’s partnering with us to bring this very special tour exclusively to our guests.
Here’s what’s included:
Check in at The Oval cottage from 3pm. At 6pm, Bobbie will meet you at The Oval for a short introduction. There’s time to familiarise yourself with the devices you’ll be using on your first evening’s paranormal investigation so you can understand how to get the most from them during your stay. Then the excitement begins as you head out on your Dunster Ghost Walk. Bobbie will escort you around the most haunted locations in the village and bring its fascinating history to life during your evening expedition.
Meet Bobbie in the ancient town of Watchet at 6pm for a two-hour-long ghost tour of this famous harbour. There’ll be time to test your paranormal prowess in this location which has a chequered past that includes smuggling, piracy and more!
