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 Haunting of Newton’s Cove
People visiting the area after sun down have reported seeing ghostly figures moving about the shingle beach.
At first the witness though that the figure were just local teenagers larking about but then they see the ghostly figures walk out to sea where they disappear into thin air.
During the Second World War locals witnessed the ghostly figures and actually thought they were German soldiers invading.
That’s until they too vanished into thin air!
The police were called and a search was mounted but nobody was ever found.
Local legend says that Newton’s Cove was a spot where a smuggler’s tunnel once exited.
So maybe the apparitions witnessed at night are in fact ghosts of former smugglers still participating in unlawful pursuits!
There’s an ice cream hut just by the footbridge which crosses Newton’s Road.
This area is said to be haunted by the ghost of a mistress of a seaman who was tragically lost at sea.
Her ghostly apparition has been seen standing on the shore looking out at sea for her beloved.
