I will have to start by saying that this is the first time anything like this has ever happened to me, or my girlfriend. I wouldn't say I'm a sceptic as such, but after watching Derek Acorah's joke TV shows, one tends not to believe the tripe churned out on the box. Anyhow, I digress.
The instance I am referring to happened on the 1st of December, 2013 at Dumbleton Hall, near Evesham. My fiancé and I were spending one night at the hotel, courtesy of an offer via Travelzoo. We arrived, checked in, unpacked and got ready for evening dinner, table being booked for 19:00.
Having finished our 3 course meal, we took our wine glasses from the restaurant and intended on sitting in the bar area. Unfortunately, the prime seats in front of the log-burner were taken, so we decided to sit in two arm-chairs in front of the open fire in the large reception area.
Both wine glasses were put on the small round table to the opposite of the fire and our chairs, some 8 inches approx from the edge of the table. We chatted, watched the logs burning and then the next thing I know, my fiancé jumps into a standing position with wine dripping from the right-hand-side of her dress, and the chair was soaked too. The glass in question was on its side on the table, having made no sound on 'hitting' the table. There was no wine on the table, nor on the carpet next to the chair my fiancé had been sat in.
At the time, neither of us were any closer than 2 foot from the glasses. The only thing I could liken this to, would be if someone had picked the glass up and thrown the contents at my fiancé and placed the glass on the table. Bizarre. As we discussed the strange event, I went for my glass. This had moved some 8 inches, and as we watched, it reached the edge of the table, and began to overhang it. I then picked it up and drank the contents. The table was totally dry, and the bottom of the glass too. I asked at reception if anyone had reported similar events, none had.
On our return home, my girlfriend found a Tripadvisor report from Nov 2012, citing similar glass-related strangeness. A great stay, made interesting...
