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 Brundon Hall
Just north of Sudbury near the Brundon water mill you’re find the Grade II* listed Brundon Hall.
The 18th century Brundon Hall has an amazing ghost story associated with it.
Back in 1785 it was reported that a ghostly apparition of a lady in blue satin was witnessed by two young lads stamping three times on a blue slab on the floor near the Hall’s great staircase before she vanishing through a nearby doorway.
At a later date new owners of the hall were renovating the building when they came across an underground vault concealed by the blue slab the ghostly apparition had stamped on.
What they discovered disturbed them…
The underground vault contained a couple of skeletons guarding a large stash of gold coins.
One of the skeletons wore a gold bracelet whilst the other had gold spurs near its feet.
There was also a goblet containing what some believed was dried blood.
But more shockingly…
In a recess in the vault’s wall a collection of children skulls and bones were discovered!
