The Manor House Hotel dates back to the 16th century and is said to be probably the most haunted building in the town.
Before the Second World War it was actually called Creswyke House and was owned by the Creswyke family for well over a hundred years until 1752.
It was then bought at a knock down price by a businessman called Benjamin Busby because it was haunted!
It’s said that at the end of the 17th century Dame Creswyke was murdered in the house and her ghost now haunts the building.
If you want a haunted night at the hotel stay in Room 8 as this is said to be the bedroom which she likes to haunt the most.

The Grade I listed 12th century Amberley Castle Hotel is located in the picturesque village of Amberley.
