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 Cutter Hotel
The Grade II listed building dates back to the early 19th century.
The rear room of the hotel is said to be haunted by a ghostly woman.
Customers who’ve witness her sitting at the bar, describe her as having blonde hair and being very attractive.
Nobody knows exactly who the mysterious blonde woman is as there’s no records of any female deaths happening at the property.
The hotel is said to have another ghostly woman haunting it, this time its an elderly woman.
Witnesses describe her as having grey hair tied in a bun and wearing a dark shawl.
Her ghostly apparition has been seen walking through the building and out of the side door onto St Alban Street.
As well as sitting in the rear bar smoking a clay pipe!
The cellar of the hotel is also said to be haunted as staff members have complained that the beer taps would mysteriously be turned off and beer barrels would be moved around by somebody unknown.
A former landlord once reported that one day whilst he was hanging half-way out of the upstairs bathroom window, which he was painting at the time, somebody invisible gave him a firm push so hard that he had to drop his brush and paint pot and hold onto the window frame to stop himself from falling!
