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 Haunting of Bruisyard Hall
About a fifteen minute drive northeast from Framlingham is the stately home of Bruisyard Hall.
In 1364 the Manor House of Rokes Hall was converted into the Abbey of the Poor Clares.
Then the abbey was dissolved in 1539 by Henry VIII.
A manor house was subsequently built on the site of the former Abbey.
It’s said that Bruisyard Hall is haunted by a nun from the Abbey of the Poor Clares.
You see, in the attic of the hall there’s a stain on the floorboards which the cleaners at Bruisyard Hall have tried but failed to remove…
It’s said that this is the bloodstain from a murdered nun from the Abbey!
Another ghostly apparition often witnessed at dusk gliding across the lawns of the hall is that of Maud of Lancaster who spent her last days at the abbey.
