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 White Hart Hotel dates back to 1710 but there’s actually been an inn on the site since the 15th century.
This old hotel is said to be very haunted…
The hotel’s Orangery restaurant was once the stable block.
It’s said that many centuries ago a highwayman was killed by a coachman who stabbed him in the face with a lighted torch.
Terrified members of staff and guests alike have witnessed the ghostly apparition of a highwayman running through the restaurant.
He’s often said to be hiding his face with his dark cloak!
In bygone years, a pretty maid at the hotel got the attention of the hotel’s rat-catcher.
She rejected his advances which resulted in him brutally murdering her.
Her apparition has been seen cowering in the corner of the first floor landing.
She’s now became known as the Mop Cap Girl!
Another female ghost seen at the hotel is that of an elderly woman in a period dress.
She’s been seen by spooked witnesses walking along one of the lower floor corridors.
In the 1960s a young man sadly committed suicide in one of the hotel’s rooms.
Some say that his ghost is responsible for the eerie sound of a phantom gunshot and the floating ball of light which is often witnessed at the hotel.
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!
