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 Hauntings at the Maltings
The Maltings is the oldest inhabited building in Saffron Walden… it’s over 600 years old!
As the name suggests it’s an old malt house where cereal grain was converted into malt.
The building has been renovated and today I think it is now a private home.
But, it was once owned by the Youth Hostel Association and run as a youth hostel.
During this time a few paranormal research groups carried out vigils here and they discovered that the old building had a few ghosts within its walls.
It’s believed that most of the building is haunted but the two most active rooms are said to be the sack hoist room and the cellar!
It’s said that a ghostly little girl has been heard crying in the sack hoist room and shadowy figures have been seen in the spooky cellar.
