Moat House, Tamworth
- Moat House redirects here. For the listed building in Sutton Coldfield, see Moat House, Sutton Coldfield.
Currently the Moat House is a modern family restaurant, but is being renovated back to its original splendour.
A rare family of 18 Black Swans live around the grounds.
Charles I stayed in the property in August 1619.
In 1815 the Moat House became a lunatic asylum.
It is purported that walking the third floor corridors is the ghost of a young girl named Emily, or Amelia. It is believed she was locked in the tower by her father and died in a fire that originated from a burning candle. There is evidence of a fire, but no evidence that it was in that location, or that anybody died in it.
