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 Ghosts of Stevington
In the centre of the village you cannot but fail to see a large 13th century stone cross which was erected by Hugh II the Bishop of Lincoln.
Local legend says that in a house nearby lived a man who had a reputation amongst the villagers for being a miser.
He hoarded his money and never gave a penny away!
One day he was taken ill and rushed to hospital where he unfortunately died.
But now it seems like his spirit has returned to his former home.
Locals say that his ghost is searching for his hoarded money!
If you head along Church Road from the cross you’ll come to the impressive medieval St Mary the Virgin Church.
Terrified witnesses have reported seeing a shadowy figure wandering around the church grounds.
They describe the ghostly figure as wearing a large hat and cape.
Apparently he looks like the figure from the Sandemans Port bottle!
