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.

It's said to be haunted by the ghost of a young girl called Emily who committed suicide at the castle.

The Haunting at Vinters Valley Nature Reserve
You’ll find Vinters Valley Nature Reserve tuck away between Vinters Park and the Grove Green housing estates to the north east of Maidstone.
The nature reserve which was once part of a large 18th century country estate is over 90 acres in size.
It comprises of woodland, grassland, marshland and a lake.
In 2003 a visitor was walking through a wooded area of the reserve when he sudden saw a ghostly apparition of a man dressed in Victorian clothing walk across the pathway in front of him and disappear straight through a fence.
He described the ghostly man as having long blonde tied back hair and was walking in a puppet-like way.
What really freaked the witnesses out was the grisly appearance of the figure.
He had no face or legs and where his chest should’ve been was a big black hole!
