Oast house at Elvey Farm near Pluckley
Pluckley has the reputation of being the most haunted village in England. One of the particularly haunted sites has always been Elvey Farm. This is now the Elvey Farm Country Hotel. It has even been listed as one of the ten most haunted places to stay in the world.

In the days when this was still a farm there were frequent sightings of a fair-haired young man with a short-cropped beard. Doors opened on their own in the night, phantom footstep were heard along corridors, and lights were switched on by themselves. Tradition was that a tenant farmer committed suicide at the farm in the 1850s following the death of his wife and the failure of his business.
