I came across this place when i was on a walk on Dartmoor i think it is classed as derelict because it was out of use for along time. I think it is now being used as a bunkhouse for a local adventure centre. It is well into the moors and you have to walk a long way to get to it. The farmhouse is surrounded by sheep and horses. :mrgreen:
Nuns Cross Farm.

That is a delightful building, Saz. Whereabouts on Dartmoor is it? It sounds familiar and I think I've come across a strange tale or ghost story about it somewhere. Couldn't find it in any of my books, so it was probably from a library book. Lovely photos. :)

Yes it is Nun's Cross Farm. I've just spent most of the afternoon researching it plus lots of other interesting things on or araound Dartmoor. I've found a link to the training centre that now owns it.

I once did one of these training courses many years ago. One of the most memorable weeks of my life. Great stuff! :mrgreen:

:mrgreen: Looking at the photos on the Training Centre site and where it's located, I'm pretty sure it was the same centre that I went to. It was nearly 16 years ago now :eek: and a lot more basic then. We didn't go to Nuns Cross but did do a long midnight walk (as well as a couple of evenings at The Plume of Feathers in Princetown playing skittles and quaffing much beer :mrgreen: ). :)

Hey, really new to Urbex. Glad to find I'm not alone in wanting to find these places. I to have stayed at Nun's Cross when I was at Kelly College in '07. Pretty bare inside with steel bunk beds but no mattresses! Really nice spot though.

On a seperate note someone mentioned the house at Ditsworthy - I love that place, with its blacked out windows and roof. Well if anyone fancies getting out and finding places in south devon please give me a shout.

Camped in the garden on DoE way back in around 1993. We were all kept awake, terrified by a strange clanging noise all night. In the morning I braved a peek and saw a sheep rubbing against the metal gate! At the time it had ‘danger radon gas’ signs all over it.
