What is the story behind the castle?
The Grade-1 listed sprawling fortress is set on a windswept hilltop by the Irish Sea amid 250 acres of grounds and gardens.
Gwrych Castle dates back to 1810 when it was built by Lloyd Hesketh Bamford-Hesketh, heir of the Lloyds of Gwrych.
It has had many inhabitants over the years, being passed to the Earls of Dundonald by marriage to the Bamford Hesketh heiress, Winifred.
It was owned for many years by the Dundonald family, before being sold in 1946 and soon after, opened to the public.
The Gwrych Castle Preservation Trust bought the castle in 2018, after a campaign to save it from the disrepair, as it started to fall into ruin.
A haunted castle?
Legend has it that the Countess of Dundonald, Winifred Cochrane, who was born in 1859 and died in 1924, still haunts the castle.
The Countess, who was a patron of the Welsh arts and known for her charitable deeds, had become the sole heiress of Gwrych Castle when her father, Robert Bamford Hesketh, died in 1894.
Her marriage to Douglas Cochrane, 12th Earl of Dundonald, was understood to have been unhappy and he was not around much, choosing to spend his time in Scotland instead, leaving her alone in Wales.
The Countess tried to leave the castle in her will to Prince George, who became King George V, but he could not accept the gift and it was later bought by the Earl of Dundonald for just over £70,000.
Apparently, The Countess’s Tower is one of the key spots for paranormal activity at Gwrych, according to the castle’s website, where The Countess allegedly still visits.
There have been reported sightings of a woman in the grounds, among other ghostly presences.
One alleged spot was by paranormal Investigator, Gemma Williams, who told the MailOnline she had seen a “lady in a red dress just walked out of the wall” in the castle’s grounds at night.
She claimed she had run away when the woman, who had an “old fashioned red dress on, a white shawl going over her arms and curly blonde hair”, had screamed.
Some have also reportedly seen a servant girl who fell off a horse and died in the grounds still returns in ghostly form, as well as gamekeepers and other former staff.
The castle, which was previously open to the public, used to hold ghost hunts in the castle’s grounds at night.
“Real life ghost encounters by visitors to Gwrych Castle are commonplace”, the castle’s website claims.
Groups of visitors would gather from 8pm to 1am on special nights throughout the year and walk the sprawling grounds and buildings, to see if they could spot any ghostly presences.
The website recounts stories from people who work or volunteer in the castle of hearing chains “rattle” and the sounds of “footsteps” approaching when there was apparently no-one there.
“The handrail gave way to nothingness and I felt something propel me up the top three stairs. Seconds later, my colleague told me the butler died right there on that same staircase,” one quote from a castle volunteer on the castle’s website said.
As well as the Countess, there have reportedly also been sightings of, “a distressed dairymaid”, household staff, and a gamekeeper, in the Bakehouse, Coachhouse and Chapel, while the Countess’s former husband, the Earl of Dundonald, was said to still stalk the castle himself.
Unfortunately for any budding ghost hunters, the castle is currently closed to visitors until the new year.
