Darkmoor Manor has a past shrouded in

shadows and bloodshed

it was built in 1782 for millionaire and

recluse Margaret the Mort but even

during its construction the property

seemed cursed an unexplained fire in the

West Quarter claimed her son the Mort

was grief-stricken and took her own life

by hanging herself from the rafters the

next family lasted less than a year in

Dartmoor, violently butchered by their gardener who

later claimed in court that the house had made him do it.

Since then Dartmoor has

claimed twelve more victims

five within the last year only last

February a film crew at looking for

proof of the supernatural and never came


don't worry that footage was never found

but seriously there had been continued

reports of ghostly apparitions,

terrible screams and...

...strange shadowy figures staring out of the windows

on full moons yes this is the most cursed haunted

house in Britain and that ladies and

gents concludes the tour

No, but a few minutes yet. May I?

probably should do that next time you go abroad.

Still if you hadn't come to

Dartmoor you'd have missed my thrilling tour.

I loved the tour.

I know I was

particularly brilliant I really felt I

delivered the drama.

You are so full of


But seriously I enjoy it. I mean I get

good crowds, Dartmoor's got an incredible

history, and that's a fun story to tell

don't you ever feel bad exploiting the town's misfortune.

Exploiting? Look, this town exists because of that house

it's the only reason the entire community survives.

Okay we get it

the house is awesome.

Sorry it's just...

Look you wouldn't be joking if you went

into that house. You'd feel how real it is

You feel it to your very bones.
