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 Hauntings at the Star Inn
The Star Inn which is situated along the High Street in Ingatestone has a couple of paranormal tales associated with it.
It said to be haunted by the spirit of a small spotted black dog that is believed to have died at the pub back in 1914.
Over the years the ghostly apparition of the little dog has been seen many times by the locals.
Generally it seems to be harmless.
Although sometimes it tries to block people from walking down the pavement!
In 1956 two sisters staying at the Star Inn left the pub in quite a hurry in the middle of the night due to some unsettling paranormal activity they had witnessed.
You see they couldn’t sleep because their room’s lights kept on being turned on and off by an unknown presence.
Also, this same spooky entity kept on opening and closing their bedroom door!
