During it's run, the Most Haunted team investigated various locations in Cornwall as listed below

Most Haunted is reported to be returning to British Television in 2014 on the 'Really' channel


Pengersick Castle - in Praa Sands is believed to be one of the most haunted locations in Cornwall. The Pengersick family have lived there since the 12th Century when it was built. The Pengersick family were amongst the most notorious in all Cornwall, with many legends associated with them throughout the years.

This is an atmospheric location that spooks even the hard-bitten, worldy-wise Most Haunted crew.

First aired in 2003                               www.pengersickcastle.com

Jamaica Inn - A legendary coaching house located on Bodmin Moor.

The building was erected in 1750 to give shelter to travellers as they passed over the wind-swept moors. The inn and its shadowy past were both immortalised in Daphne du Mauriers novel, "Jamaica Inn" published in 1936. Its isolated location made it a popular stop for smugglers.

Wellington Hotel - A 16th Century coaching inn, extended in 1860. Originally called Bos Castle Hotel but it was renamed the Scotts Wellington in 1852, after the late Duke of Wellington. 


A number of prominent people have stayed at the hotel, including Edward VII, novelist Thomas Hardy and Sir Henry Irving, the first actor to be knighted. However, the hotel's history has been a fairly quiet one.
