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 current building dates from the 18th century but there’s actually been an inn on the site since 1575.
There’s a rather scary ghost story associated with the Kings Head…
One day a female member of staff walked through the fire door on the hotel’s landing and then proceeded to walk through the next one but found that it was tightly shut.
The door wouldn’t open so she turned back to exit via the fire door she had just come through.
To her surprise she found that this door was firmly shut too.
Starting to panic she looked through the fire door window to see what or who was stopping the door from opening.
To her horror she saw a ghostly apparition of an old lady in period dress with an evil look on her face holding the door shut!
