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 the Cow
You’ll find the Cow situated along Station Road in the Parkstone area of Poole.
The Cow restaurant and pub is housed in an old Victorian building that dates back to 1855.
The building was originally the Parkstone Hotel and it’s said that some of its former staff members from the 1920’s and 1930’s haunt the building today.
One of the Cow’s waitresses reported somebody invisible barge pass her whilst she was carrying a tray.
And on another occasion a pile of cutlery was mysteriously polished and laid out on a tray overnight by somebody unknown.
It’s said that the spirit of a former maid of the Parkstone Hotel called Molly is responsible for the haunting of the building.
