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 hall was built in 1825 for the Blackburn mill owner and Member of Parliament William Turner.
In the 20th century it was used as a school by the religious institute of the Salesians of Don Bosco.
The Salesians added a chapel to the south of the house in 1936.
In 1989 the house and church were converted into a hotel and country club.
Guests at the hotel have reported paranormal activity with one witnessing a ghostly apparition walking into his bathroom!
Other reported ghostly goings-on at the hotel include unexplained noises, dramatic temperature drops and strange banging noises in the middle of the night.
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!
