LUMLEY CASTLE: A Haunted Castle You Can Actually Stay the Night In!
The ghost of Lady Lily Lumley is said to haunt the castle.
Phantom children are often heard playing on the top floor.
And a ghostly apparition of a man has been seen sitting at the bar.
It’s said that a ghost known as Black Jack often plays pranks on startled guests!
The timber-framed Grade II listed building dates back to the 1600s when it started life out as a private house.
In 2015, the pub’s CCTV capture footage of pint glasses flying off their shelves in the early hours of the morning.
The premises are said to be haunted by the ghosts of two 17th century children called Charlotte and William.
They tragically drown in the pub’s cellar when they were locked in during a game of hide and seek and the nearby River Severn broke its banks flooding the room.
The building is also said to be haunted by the ghost of a woman in black who witnesses have heard crying.
Some people say that the woman in black is in fact the children’s mother!
FEATURED HAUNTED HOTEL: Amberley Castle
The Grade I listed 12th century Amberley Castle Hotel is located in the picturesque village of Amberley.
The castle started life out as a timber-framed hunting lodge in 1103.
But it upgraded to a fortified manor house in 1377 by the bishop of Chichester.
After the Reformation the castle still belonged to the church but was leased out to the crown.
During the English Civil War part of the castle was destroyed by Parliamentarian forces and it fell into ruin.
The Duke of Norfolk leased Amberley Castle in 1893 and started to renovate it.
Today the castle has been transferred into an amazing luxury hotel.
The castle is said to be haunted by the ghost of a young girl called Emily who committed suicide at the castle.
Her ghostly apparition has been seen by terrified witnesses in and around the Herstmonceux room!
