Haunted properties for sale in the UK

1. 'The Cage', Clacton-on-Sea
Property price:
Reason? A prison for witches

This two bed-semi detached house might not look too daunting from the outside, especially given it's lively yellow paint job, but a dark secret lies within. In the 16th century women accused of witchcraft were held here until sentencing. The sing above pays testament to the building's history, explaining that famous suspected witch Ursula Kemp was kept in the house until she was hanged.

2. The Ice House, Kincardineshire
Property price: £340,000
Reason? A romantic end

The Ice House was originally a salmon fishing station, but that's not what puts it on the map. George Beattic, the poet, proposed to a local heiress who later broke of the relationship to marry another man. Beattic was distraught and stood in the graveyard by the house, firing practice shots at the property. He later turned the gun on himself - a memorial to him still stands in the graveyard.

3. The Three Pigeons Inn, North Wales
Property price: £775,000
Reason? Ghostly sightings

The Three Pigeons Inn was rebuilt in 1777 and still serves ale straight from the cellar. However, traditional beer aside, a number of locals have experienced paranormal encounters in the pub, including the ghost of an old man sitting by the fire and a teenager wreaking havoc around the property. Why not pop in for a spirit?

4. Barley Green Farmhouse, Lancashire
Property price:
Reason? Plenty of history

This 1796 home was once the preaching location of John Wesley (founder of the Wesleyan Methodist Church) but that's not what grants it its place on this list. The property is near a Bronze Age burial ground found at the summit of Pendle Hill, home to the Pendle witches. Tourists flock to the area each year in the hopes of a witch sighting!

In Zoopla's list of the most viewed properties in recent weeks, this whopper comes in at number 9.

The £2 million property in Doncaster has planning permission to be turned into a hotel or wedding venue, and has been seen a whopping 14,000 times in a month.

This two-bedroom flat in Canary Wharf is on the market for £675,000. The attractions of imagining your life in a warehouse conversion with plenty of space and light means that 16,000 people have looked at it in a month.

This new five-bed property in South Oxfordshire is an excellent example of how much prices have risen in that part of the country - with an asking price of £1.195 million.

Clearly the attractions of being near Reading (without actually being in Reading) are driving enormous demand - with 37,000 views in a month

This five-bedroom detached house in Skelmersdale is on the market for offers over £210,000. The fact that such a normal-looking family house has been seen by 45,000 people in a month owes something to the fact that the owners built it themselves - to a particularly high spec - and as a result it is pricey for the area.

This four-bed detached house doesn't look particularly striking from the front, so it must be hard to see why it's worth £299,950 - an impressive sum for the area. This goes some way to explaining its 69,000 views in a month.

All is revealed round the back, however, as the property opens up in acres of glass to reveal spacious open-plan living.

This newly built seven-bedroom detached house has enough attractions to justify the £3.25 million price tag (not least the underground car showroom with space for 30 cars). The 73,000 views may also have something to do with the elegant writing style of the estate agent.

Phrases used in the listing include: "This must be the jewel in the crown for Royal Sutton Coldfield gentry." And: "The rear garden is enchanting."

On the outside it's a bog standard terrace in Bootle, Merseyside. But on the inside its a dramatically refurbished property with statement lighting aplenty.

It's no wonder this £85,000 property had 80,000 views in a month - and is the third most-viewed home.

A two-bedroom flat in the former home of Arsenal Football cub is on the market for £660,000. Clearly die hard fans have been captivated by the idea of living in this iconic building - complete with a grass courtyard with plenty of room for a kick-about. It has been viewed an impressive 95,000 times, making it the second most viewed property.

But the most viewed home in the country is the six-bedroom Lindisfarne Farm in County Durham - on the market for just £175,000.

An incredible 475,000 people have seen it in the past month, drawn by the enormous rooms, the incredible views, and the idea of being able to live a simple life, away from it all, for just £175,000.
