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 Tilty Abbey
Just a little drive from Thaxted is a small village called Tilty.
Tilty was once the location of an important medieval abbey.
Unfortunately, apart for a stone wall and a couple of overgrown ponds, there’s not too much of this grand medieval abbey left.
Except the ghost of a headless monk that is!
You see, back in 1215 King John’s soldiers ransack the abbey, the nearby church and killed a couple of monks for good measures.
It’s now believed that one of these poor monks haunts the abbey site in the form of a ghostly headless figure!
The strange thing is…
In the 1940’s a decapitated skeleton of a man was found in the grounds of the old abbey!
