** Explored with my girlfriend, @Adzitude and his girlfriend **

History;

I can't find too much out about this place. I think it closed in 2009, although I find it hard to believe that it's been 11 years due to the lack of destruction around the place.
It appears to be a cross between a hotel and a self catering motel type thingy. The main building houses a bar, skittle alley, kitchen and a large upstairs restaurant. Outside, there's an outdoor pool, and indoor pool and several large buildings containing the rooms. Some self catering, some not. In its day, it looked like this;



Explore;

All in all, a lovely day out mooching around here for a few hours. First time meeting @Adzitude and his girlfriend too; pleasure to have met you both. My girlfriend and I had an awesome day with you both, thanks. Must do it again sometime. The day ended scrambling down a landslip to get to a waterfall, finding an open cave system at an abandoned garden centre and wandering into someone's private collection of old dustbin lorries parked up in an old quarry! Strange ol' day...

However, by far and away, the strangest find of the day had to be the below... I'll reserve judgement on if we think it's genuine or not, and just leave it up to you guys to decide! ;)




Pictures;























































All the best,
Fluffy.

Love it mate. The places is trashed to hell but your pics make it look almost spacious and somewhat organised lol.

That really is surprisingly in decent condition for a place closed for over a decade!
The first photo, with the outline of a gun... what exactly is going on there??

The vase of flowers was a bit strange too as we visited an old disused motel in Norfolk and found a similar arrangement, thanks for your reply

I'd be very interested in the location of that motel, sounds like that could be a really fun explore.

It looks like a nice explore and some good shots there. It has gone downhill a lot since I first saw it posted. It was quite undisturbed then. Nice to see an update :thumb

From what I remember it was at Necton on the A47 but ive got a stange feeling they might have started to redevelop it
Oh ! That one's long gone, it's a co-op and fuel station now. I actually made a report on it myself :

Looks like someone spraying a toy gun to make it look real!
