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!
Two rooms, Room 5 and Room 7 in the 14th century hotel have mysteriously blocked up doorways.
In the past the hotel had a strong link with local smugglers.
In fact, it’s from those smuggling days that the ghost of the Lion Hotel is believed to have come from…
The Lion Hotel is said to be haunted by a ghostly woman.
Witnesses who’ve seen her apparition describe her as being a tall lady who wears a grey dress.
Her ghostly apparition has been seen mainly in the early hours of the morning on the ground floors of the hotel and walking through Room 5 into Room 6.
The ghostly lady is believed to be the spirit of a former landlady who was murdered by smugglers because she knew too much!
Most visitors staying the night at the Lion Hotel don’t actually see her ghost but many do report hearing her phantom footsteps and the swish of her dress.
