Fancy spending a night in a castle or a historic schoolhouse? Or perhaps you’d like to be close to a mysterious forest or a haunted village? Then take a look at our favourite Halloween-inspired homes, and trick-or-treat yourself to a devilishly delicious getaway!

These homes score high on the spooky scale with scary intensity, boasting anything from stained glass windows, to goosebump-inducing locations by time-worn graveyards and looming forests. Even though the homeowners have yet to confirm any ghost sightings or dramatic drops in temperature, their homes provide the perfect backdrop for Halloween-lovers. 


But before we get started, here's our big spooky disclaimer: We've obviously been very naughty (devilish even) and we've added a little filter to these gorgeous, not-at-all scary homes to make them look spook-tactular. Trick-or-treating has clearly gone to our pumpkin heads. Simply click through to the full property listings to see how wonderful these homes are every other day of the year! Confession over... now then, back to the spooky theme!
