Not much info on this place. Its in a stunning location in the Tamar valley and has been empty since 2011.

Finally arrived at this place after failing about 12 other locations just a shame when we got here it had already started to get dark and raining so unfortunately no outside shots of this place.

A nice collection of photographs but with a hint of sadness. The photograph with the elderly lady holding a teddy bear, that's the same teddy sitting on the bookshelf next picture down. The person who lived here (that lady in the picture?) must have been an avid book reader.

This is one of my fav places. Talking of booze, in one of the out buildings he made his own wine, loads bottles and tank fermenting the brew.

Same, I have made some half hearted attempts at tracking down owners. I think that house is still saveable for now, the location is stunning.

Popped along today, police tape and a lot of do not enter signs. Sadly, a lot has been taken from these early photos. Locals very aware now aswell. I notice some nobhead American explorer has done a vid of it 3months ago with 2.4millions views and I get the impression from the comments the vid initially showed the address on a letter. It's gone down hill based on what I saw on his vid compared to my visit today. I won't lie I had full intention of doing something frowned generally frowned upon. But I wanted to spread the ashes of the women and son in the garden of a place they obviously loved during their life before it gets vandalised further. But didn't venture inside.

Trying to find the owners of this house.

I've moved to the area this house is in. My father in law suggested I take a look at the house because I want to buy a property here.... I couldn't find any information about the house till I put a search into Google and came up with this thread and the photos, and another site which held photos of the house. I'm currently trying to trace the owners of the property as I'm so disturbed with the amount of decay and vandalism that seems to have taken place over the course of time. In my early photographic career I used to love photographing abandoned buildings and urban decay... It seems my life has come full circle and finding like-minded people who want to preserve places rather than take from them has touched my heart. The fact that Matt has said he wanted to scatter the ashes in the garden made me want to weep, so touching. I'm interested in finding out about the video made by the American if anyone could help me? My local postman has told me a little about the house but I need as much info as I can to find the owners. I know they are out there, can anyone help?

Thank you Missypink. Xxx I 've seen this one before... every time I look at the photos it makes me so angry that idiots are stealing and a tagging stuff.... when I photograph abandoned places I leave as I find.... I can't abide disrespectful people. ....xx

Thank you, nice pictures. But such a shame to see somebody's possessions and memories trashed by morons. That makes me sad. Looks like a lovely house, though. Maybe it will see happy times again.

Fifty odd years ago, just a passing comment in the pub could lead to the same ends. In today's world, the first mention on the Inter Net will lead the vandal hoards to the door. Sadly for every one of us just interested in looking, there is at least a twin interested in causing mayhem and vandalism.

At times it seems a pity no one would clean the graffiti off the wall etc
