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 hotel is an old coaching inn which is over five hundred years old.
It’s believed that King Charles I stayed at the inn before the Battle of Naseby in 1645 which ended up being the decisive battle of the English Civil War.
The hotel has a reputation for being haunted…
A ghostly apparition of a Victorian lady is often seen at the hotel.
Apparently, she looks very lifelike until she disappears into thin air!
Terrified members of staff have also witnesses the ghostly figure of a Grey Lady wandering around the first floor of the hotel especially in the restaurant.
Many believe that the Grey Lady and the Victorian lady are the same spirit, but I’ll let you make up your mind on that one!
The ghost of a stable hand who tragically committed suicide by hanging himself is said to haunt the Cottage Rooms in the hotel’s courtyard.
A strange event happened to a couple staying in the larger cottage one winter’s day when a snowball hit the husband whilst he was in the bedroom.
What made it even weirder was once the snowball had melted the couple found the wife’s jewellery wrap inside it.
The jewellery wrap had previously been on the dressing table!
And finally, the hotel’s maid has often reported seeing indents in freshly made beds as though somebody invisible was sitting there.
