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 Crown and Anchor
The young son of a former landlord got the shock of his life one night when he awoke to find a pair of ghostly legs hanging from his ceiling.
It’s said that a séance was performed the night before and a ghost of a hanging man was evoked.
The pub is also said to be haunted by the ghosts of two young children, a boy and a girl.
Apparently they hide a lot because they’re afraid of the hanging man!
A ghostly Spaniard and a ghost of a French girl are also said to haunt the pub.
Local legend says that French girl was brought ashore by a sailor or soldier during the Napoleonic Wars.
He abandoned her when she became pregnant.
She worked at the pub as a serving wench but tragically committed suicide by throwing herself out of the pub’s upstairs rear window.
Terrified witnesses who’ve seen her ghostly apparition describe her as being pale looking, dressed in grey and muttering a French phrase!
