AMBERLY CASTLE: A Haunted Castle You Can Actually Stay the Night In!
The Grade I listed 12th century Amberley Castle Hotel is located in the picturesque village of Amberley.
Today, the castle has been transferred into an amazing luxury hotel.
It's 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!
The Grade II* listed hotel dates back to the early 18th century… 1710 to be precise!
A wealthy industrialist called George Allan built it and it remained in the family for many centuries afterwards.
The hotel has a ghostly story with a Scottish twist associated with it…
During a military campaign in Scotland in 1746, the Duke of Cumberland stole a portrait of a woman dressed in tartan and brought it to Blackwell Grange.
Since that time the portrait has been lost or destroyed.
Unfortunately, the spirit of the Tartan Lady came with the portrait.
And it’s now said that her ghostly apparition haunts Blackwell Grange to this very day!
