LUMLEY CASTLE: A Haunted Castle You Can Actually Stay the Night In!
The ghost of Lady Lily Lumley is said to haunt the castle.
Phantom children are often heard playing on the top floor.
And a ghostly apparition of a man has been seen sitting at the bar.
It’s said that a ghost known as Black Jack often plays pranks on startled guests!
The New England Hotel has a great ghost story to tell…
A couple of guests were returning to their room at the hotel one evening when they were met outside their door by a man in white overalls.
The man was very apologetic and explained he’ll be working in the room next door for the next twenty minutes but would try to keep the noise down.
Well, for the next hour the guests could hear the man banging and sawing away.
In the morning the couple complained to the hotel manager that they were unhappy with all the work noise the night before.
He was surprised and explained that there weren’t any workmen at the hotel.
A fellow member of staff overheard the conversion and told them that the room next door to them was haunted by the ghost of a carpenter who had died during the 1970s!
The phantom carpenter isn’t the only ghost said to haunt the hotel…
A member of staff was scared witless one day when she saw the ghostly apparition of a lady in a long blue dress appear in the bar area!
FEATURED HAUNTED HOTEL: Amberley Castle
The Grade I listed 12th century Amberley Castle Hotel is located in the picturesque village of Amberley.
The castle started life out as a timber-framed hunting lodge in 1103.
But it upgraded to a fortified manor house in 1377 by the bishop of Chichester.
After the Reformation the castle still belonged to the church but was leased out to the crown.
During the English Civil War part of the castle was destroyed by Parliamentarian forces and it fell into ruin.
The Duke of Norfolk leased Amberley Castle in 1893 and started to renovate it.
Today the castle has been transferred into an amazing luxury hotel.
The castle is 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!
