Would YOU stay in Britain's most haunted B&B?

This is Britain's most haunted B&B - where terrified guests have been left so scared they have even jumped out of the windows.

The Ancient Ram Inn, in Gloucester, is believed to be riddled with up to 20 spooky spectres who torment the paying guests of the 12th century home.

Built on an ancient pagan burial ground, believed to be the scene of child sacrifices, the Cotswolds cottage is haunted by the likes of a murdered young girl called Rosie, a high priestess - and even a sex demon.

Caroline Humphries, whose family has lived in the Ram Inn for nearly 50 years, told Caters News: "My father won't go anywhere without his Bible."

But despite its ghoulish reputation, Caroline is inundated with guests who are desperate to spend a night in Britain's spookiest lodgings.

Past guests have fled from the house in the middle of the night after claiming to have seen furniture flying around the bedrooms, visions of a little girl wandering the hallways, and have even been pushed down onto a bed by a randy incubus.

But now, it is packed out with ghost hunters and horror writers - who are queueing up to spend a night with the demons.

When investigators from Caters News visited the house, one was spooked when a presence pushed up against his back - and felt the wooden beams of the medieval house vibrate and tremble when he grabbed onto them in fear.

Caroline, 51, said: "When I was a child I was so scared of the house I used to sleep in a caravan outside. It was normal for us to see people running out of the house, screaming in terror.

"Once, I woke up and found a chest of drawers hovering over my bed - before it crashed down the staircase.

"People have told us they've seen a high priestess sitting in one of the bedrooms, objects move and spin, and we used to hear the ghosts of murdered children screaming and crying in one of the bedrooms.

"We put some children's toys in the room for them to play with and they don't cry as much any more.

"The whole house is absolutely terrifying."

Caroline's dad, John, 85, was pulled from his bed by a spirit on the first night the family moved into the home - and after researching the history of the house, he was horrified to discover an ancient burial ground lay beneath.

And years later, while renovating the home, he discovered small bones and daggers under the earth - and believes that children had been sacrificed there to pagan gods years ago.

Caroline added: "Once we had disturbed one grave, we didn't want to go digging any further, and we've left the house exactly as it stands.

"Paranormal experts love staying here, but we couldn't carry on running the house as a normal Bed and Breakfast - it's just too haunted.

"I don't think we'll ever be able to sell the house - no one in their right mind would buy it.

"But after nearly 50 years here, I've accepted that we have to live with some unwanted house guests."
