What you need to know before your trail

Charles Hayden has been fascinated by a strange Victorian fairy tale, In the Night Wood, since he was a child. When his wife, Erin – a descendant of the author – inherits her ancestor’s house, the couple decide to make it their home. Still mourning the recent death of their daughter, they leave America behind, seeking a new beginning in the English countryside.

But Hollow House, filled with secrets and surrounded by an ancient oak forest, is a place where the past seems very much alive. Isolated among the trees, Charles and Erin begin to feel themselves haunted – by echoes of the stories in the house’s library, by sightings of their daughter, and by something else, as old and dark as the forest around them.

Travel Guide

Travel BookTrail style to somewhere in rural Yorkshire..

Somwhere in a gothic house…in a creepy old forest…people are having strange visions and going a bit mad. There’s a sense of unease in the air, a real sense of claustrophobia which add to the overall mystery and sense of gothic charm.

“And in the primeval forest surrounding Caedmon Hollow’s ancestral home, an ancient power is stirring.”

Caedmon Hollow is the name of the Victorian author who wrote In the Night Wood…what a fantastic name that is!

In the Night Wood ….the location is never really explained but then again it’s fictional and very gothic and chilling so you might not want to go there anyway!
