This is not a list of haunted houses, or dress-up parties.
We are taking the classy route with these secluded eerie holidays for Halloween lovers.
Golden Oak Lodges, all over the UK
Escape to one of 10 idyllic locations in the UK. These wood cabins come with lakeside views, hot tubs and bird’s eye sights of the forest, giving you a wilderness experience that is intimate and tranquil. Though, when night falls on a cold October night, there’s nothing quite so haunting as a reflection of the moon on Loch Luchnaig in Strathyre.
Prices start at £116 per night.
Roch Castle, Wales
The traditional grandeur of this 12th century castle is offset by stunning views over St Brides Bay and the Preseli hills of Pembrokeshire, in Wales. What was once a rundown and tired castle is now one of the area’s finest holiday locations.

Kolarbyn Eco Lodge, Sweden
Accommodations range from lakeside family lodges, to tiny tree trunk bunkers — sometimes referred to as hobbit houses and mud holes.

Kolarbyn Eco Lodges avoid chemicals and toxins, with the money you pay being reinvested in the conservation of local ecosystems. Located in a spooky forest, but run with serenity in mind.
Prices start at £132 per night (depending on lodge size).
Ashford Castle, Ireland

Prices start at £325.
Coastguard Lookout, England
Turn Halloween into a romantic holiday this year. The former Coastguard Lookout Tower at Dungeness boasts uninterrupted views of the sea and, being a few steps from the water’s edge, makes for the perfect alternative to a haunted house getaway.
