Help finding film!

If anyone knows what film I'm talking about from this vague description you deserve a medal, because I can barely remember any of it but I know that I loved it as a child.


All I can remember about it was a creepy old house, girl finds a ghost (could have been a vampire, but I think it was ghost. Something supernatural anyway) - in the dungeons/basement, and I want to say there was a hidden bookcase involved. Ghost was friendly (not Casper), old fashioned dress I think? 

At a guess I would say it was probably made in the 80s/90s?

Please try and add detail to this - whatever you remember. Was it a dark, cobwebby dungeon? Was it a children’s film. What do you mean she finds a ghost? Was she scared or she simply found it. What do you remember about the bookcase?

Definitely dark - stone walls. I'm pretty sure it was a children's film.

I remember very little of the plot, I think the family have just moved into this house and the girl (teenager I think) finds a passageway behind the bookcase, which leads down to the area where the ghost is residing. I think they become friends and he needs her helps setting him free?? Or something like that??

Could it be:
The Canterville Ghost?
