The History

The Drakesbrook Guesthouse was built in the 1930's by the Struck family and was originally called "Allendene", after Allen Struck, who died of pneumonic flu after the first World War.

In 1943, the building was purchased by the Sisters of the Order of Saint Joseph to be used as a nunery, and was converted to classrooms and music rooms.

1980 saw the building sold once more, this time to be renovated and extended as a guesthouse, and renamed, the "Drakesbrook Guesthouse".

 

The Mystery

Mystery surrounds the Drakesbrook Guesthouse, and we wouldn't have it any other way! Legend has it that there is a ghost which frequents the building, though not much is known about it. Few people claim to have seen it, and have reported that it is the ghost of a little girl, though we are yet to uncover the story behind this mystery.

As if the legend of a ghost wasn't enough, we have also discovered a void between two walls, which appears to measure 2m x 4m. The previous owners didn't even know it was there, and while no attempt has been made to find out why it exists, many suggestions have been put forward, providing a great topic of conversation between guests!
