The Pimple Backpacker Hostel

If I had a loose £10,000 lying around I'd be sorely tempted to put a bid in to purchase ownership of The Pimple (GR 490 740) just outside Tavistock in Devon, as John Maddock's excellent photo reveals.

That's assuming the phrases 'Grade II listed' & 'responsibility to keep the structure in good repair' doesn't mean a mega re-plastering job of the (long empty?) underground reservoir beneath the diminutive building that most visitors see.

Just think what a distinctive backpacker's hostel it might make for those Dartmoor wanders. Might have to play around with the name though?

Spare change anyone?
