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!
There’s been an inn on the site of the Crown Hotel since the 15th century but today’s building is a Georgian coaching inn.
The hotel is said to be haunted by a couple of ghosts…
Terrified witnesses have seen a ghostly apparition of a highwayman in the bar area, restaurant and courtyard.
He’s described as wearing a tricorne hat and cloak.
In the 18th century, a highwayman was actually shot dead in the courtyard whilst trying to rob the hotel!
Another ghost seen wandering around the hotel’s first floor is that of a lady wearing a black crinoline dress.
A maid was spooked one day when she saw a lady in black entering a room she shouldn’t…
Upon investigating the room she found it totally empty!
