Haunted Country House


My granny's nephew bought an old house in the country - it was a barn converted into a house.

His wife heard their baby crying one night went up and found the blankets off the baby. Came back downstairs then heard a baby crying again a few minutes later. She went back up and found that their baby wasn't crying and the blankets were tucked under the mattress. She wouldn't tuck the blankets in like that and their baby was sleeping too peacefully to have been crying a minute before. They reckon another baby was crying, not theirs.

Their son always talked to someone, an imaginary friend or so they thought. He told them his "friend" told him not to go outside the gate and onto the road. We believe he had a protector of some sort, someone watching over him. I do not know of any deaths in the family around this time. Therefore I believe the house must have been haunted by a good spirit who was taking care of their children.

My granny's brother stayed in his son's house one day while everyone was out. He heard a door and called his wife thinking she was home early. He got no answer but footsteps walking down the hallway going into a room.

These are some of my family's experiences and happened years ago. Mine are in my other story 'Is It My Great Granny? If you can, please read my other story and comment if you have any idea what that was.

It sounds like you have a good one, something that tells a young one not to go beyond the garden gates and on to the road, can't be all that bad...

I think it could have been a friendly spirit kind of like a mother because of what happened to the baby. Or else the boy's "friend" could have been the spirit of a young child or something as they heard a baby crying but it wasn't their baby as their baby was asleep at the time.

It's a good thing the spirit told the boy not to go outside, maybe he/she was hit by a car while walking on the road and it was protecting the baby. Or maybe it was just a friendly spirit.
