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 Hauntings of Coalhouse Fort
If you remember, during the Most Haunted investigation at Coalhouse Fort, the main paranormal action took place in the tunnels below the perimeter wall.
These tunnels are very active indeed…
People have been scared stiff by hearing creepy footsteps following them into the tunnels.
They’ve also reported the sounds of something heavy being dragged along the tunnel floor as well as ghostly voices and unexplained children’s laughter.
One night whilst repairing the tunnels, volunteers heard phantom voices echoing along the tunnel of men playing a ghostly game of poker!
Other visitors to the fort have seen strange apparitions and unearthly entities whilst they walked the dark tunnels.
Some witnesses have even seen dark figures walk towards them and then just simply vanish into thin air.
Others have described being touched by unseen hands whilst they walked in the dimly lit tunnels.
In fact, some have even sworn blind that they were roughly man-handled by some unknown force or forces!
You may be surprised to hear that the tunnels are not the only paranormally active place within the fort.
It’s said that the washrooms are haunted by an evil poltergeist nicknamed Harry.
Saying Harry doesn’t like people being in the washrooms… is an understatement!
Stones and light bulbs, and on some occasion’s even heavy chairs, have all been seen to be violently thrown across the room.
