When brother and sister Roderick and Pamela Fitzgerald stumble across a vacant old house on the west of England, they know they have to buy it. They're forewarned by the owner, Commander Beech, that there have been strange occurrences there but they go ahead anyway. The house had once belonged to Beech's daughter, Mary Meredith, who committed suicide by jumping off the nearby cliff and his granddaughter Stella Meredith, now a young woman, lived there until she was 3 years old. Roderick and Pamela pay no mind to the rumors and tall tales but soon find that there are spirits in the house. They become convinced that the spirit is that of Beech's daughter but it is clear that the target of her venom is her own daughter Stella. Beech is convinced that his granddaughter is in danger in that house and seeks the assistance of the family's one-time nurse, Miss Holloway. She too however, seems to have her own secrets. With the assistance of the local doctor, Dr. Scott, they unearth the truth of what happened all those years ago.
