By Car: The Mansion is sited in Woodchester Park, near the village of Nympsfield. The Park is owned by the National Trust (but the Mansion is not an NT property). However, visitors are asked to park in the NT Buckholt car park. The entrance to this is on a minor road that runs from the B4066 (Stroud to Dursley road) to Nympsfield. The turning to Nympsfield is close to the Coaley Peak viewing point. The entrance to the car park is on the left, about 250 yards from the junction with the B4066. There are brown signs to the Buckholt car park.
The NT Buckholt car park is free to NT members, the fee is £3 for non-members which must be paid in cash. (Please note that the Mansion is not an NT property.)
Please do not use the Mansion postcode in your SatNav. If you do this unfortunately many systems will take you from the A46 to the E end of Woodchester Park in the village of South Woodchester. There is no access to the Park or the Mansion from here, the road is narrow, it is hard to turn and extra visitors inconvenience local residents.
It is much better to use 'Woodchester Park' or 'Woodchester Mansion' if these are options on your SatNav. You can also input the villages of Selsley or Uley, which are on the B4066 which goes past the turning to Nympsfield, where you will find the entrance to the NT Buckholt car park.
The grid reference for the Buckholt car park entrance is SO 797 011 and it is at Latitude 51.7088N Longitude 2.2953W.

The house like no other can offer the psychically inclined a spine chilling experience. Woodchester Mansion is said to be rich in spiritual manifestations, and can be awe-inspiring for believers of a nervous disposition.
Ghosts abound in and around the Mansion, and, for those able and lucky enough to see them, include
A young girl
A young woman
A short man, maybe a stonemason
A man attempting to hide
A man searching for someone
An American airman
A floating head
A horseman on the drive
People hear a girl singing an Irish air, 1940s music, and smell recently extinguished candles in the chapel. Other noises include loud bangs, and footsteps, though no-one is visible. Small stones drop from above, some reputedly travelling fast and horizontally. Strange lights, still and moving, are seen, but never recorded on camera.
