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!
Fobbing’s Haunted Houses
There’s a TV series called Living with the Dead which investigates hauntings in family homes around the UK.
The team is made up of the mediums Johnnie Fiori and Ian Lawman, who you may recognise from appearing in some of the Most Haunted episodes, plus the historian Hallie Rubenhold and the paranormal researcher Stephen Griffiths.
Well, in one episode called The Ghosts of Fobbing they visited a pretty 14th century house in the village.
This house was said to be haunted by quite a few ghosts!
The owners reported phenomena such as knocking on doors, doors opening, doorbell ringing and seeing shadowy figures.
From their experiences they believed that there were three ghosts present in the house…
A young boy, a lady with dark hair and a Victorian looking lady with blonde hair called Sarah!
Well the Living with the Dead team discovered the spirits of a young nine year old boy called John who died in a fire in the house, a woman called Sarah who they believed may have been a witch and an unpleasant man called Ishmael.
By the end of the episode the troubled spirits were cleansed from the house and the owners seem happy!
I also found another short piece about a haunting in Fobbing in a TV series called Extreme Ghost Stories…
It’s in the 4th episode of the series if you want to check it out.
This time it was a haunting in a modern house in the village.
It seemed to affect the eldest son of the family the most but all of the family and the eldest son’s girlfriend witnessed an apparition of a man in dark clothing and boots within the house…
Especially the youngest boy who described the ghost as being very solid looking!
