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 Jacobean-style manor house dates back to 1693 when it was first built by George Crosier as a family home.
In 1744, Robert Surtees acquired the hall and it remained a family home until 1955.
Redworth Hall is reputed to be haunted by a couple of ghosts…
Apparently, Lord Robert Surtees was said to have had a mentally ill child and had the poor boy chained to the fireplace.
And now the ghost of the young boy is said to haunt the corridors of the hall.
Guests to the hotel have become spooked after hearing the eerie sound of the phantom child crying in the middle of the night!
Another ghost story associated with Lord Surtees is that of a young scullery maid he got pregnant.
Distraught, the young girl threw herself down the hall’s staircase and killed herself.
Her ghost is now said to wander the halls corridors late at night!
The most paranormal active rooms at Redworth Hall Hotel are said to be Room 7 and 14.
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!
