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 Horse and Groom
A corner in the pub is said to be haunted by the ghost of a young happy-go-lucky 19th century man called Jimmy Coles who was found with his throat cut in a nearby alleyway.
Just before his murder Jimmy was having an affair with the wife of a wealthy businessman.
And was found out by her husband and warned off!
Drinkers in the pub know when Jimmy’s ghost is sitting in his favourite corner because they can smell the strong odour of old fashioned pipe tobacco.
