Hey - I’m pretty new to urban exploring and I’ve found passion in it, I’ve been looking through the threads and some of you have found some incredible places! I’ve been to a few locations (mostly Devon) but finding it extremely hard to find things that still exist (Ilford polish camp, wall park holiday camp in Devon etc have all been demolished!) anyway - I have some friends I’m meeting with tomorrow from Birmingham and wanna show them the best places in Cornwall, but my mind has gone blank and I keep coming back to the same ones (wenford clay dries is my favourite so far) so any recommendations?
Thank you!

I was looking into the moors not long ago. It’s a bungalow near Bude I’m desperately trying to locate though. The report is on here somewhere. Oh and the heartbreak motel... but I doubt it’s still standing.

We drove the heartbreak motel road and didn't see anything that looked like it... I know its in or near Ashton on that main road...

I found pictures of it ages ago snooping around on google. But I didn’t know it was called the heartbreak hotel until I looked some articles about it. From the pictures it was pretty messed up inside. Not sure if there is a video on YouTube as well.

The location of it seems really out of the way, so unless you're down there for something else it probably isn't worth the effort :/

Probably a bit late for the op, and It's been a few years since I've been out and about but the dairy in Torrington is still an easy day out, the old shire horse centre Plymouth way is still there I think. There's an old mill out North Towton (although that may be houses now). Some mills in wellington. There are still places to see.

I'm going to be out and about soon so looking forward to finding some more places myself!

my brother drives past there a lot I've plotted it and hopefully will be making a visit.
