Someone has dared me to stay over night in a supposed haunted house, the
house is remote and i would be taken there and given a candle for light, the house hasn't been lived in for several years, would you do it ?

Is the heat on and does the toilet work? If so, sure!

There is no electricity, i don't know about the toilet, or what condition the house is in.

I'd have to know more about it than what you have given.

One would think those who dared you to stay over will also enact a variety of schemes to enhance your experience....

If the elements of cleanliness, some decent lighting, a good read, an MP3 player, and lots of pizza are provided, I'll do it for you.

The only light allowed will be a candle, i guess you could have cold pizza
i also doubt the house will be verry clean but i don't know yet.

The house was for a farm worker, but now casual workers provide all the labour
so the house has stood empty since the last occupant moved on, it is two up
two down brick built, about 300yds from the road up a track way, and some three miles from the nearest village, that is all i know.

Why do they think the house is haunted? If, for example, every visitor over the last two years was found dead, that could be a negative.

Yeah, in what way is the house "haunted"? More than anything else, it seems to me the challenge will be dealing with the dirt and insects. And the pranks.

Personally I would want a better light source.

And yes, what sort of phenomena have occured to make your friends believe this house is haunted?

I think it is only old wives tales, it seems several farm workers had moved into the house over the years but left rather quickly, finding council accomodation
instead, i am told the house came with job, so paying for council rent seems
odd, i don't know the house or anyone that has lived in it so i don't know if
any of this is true.

Friends and I found a haunted house, and started cleaning it up so we can throw a huge party in it.

I forgot why we ruled it out (maybe the foundation was just too poor).

Anyways, we went there anytime of day or night (the latest being probably around 2-3am). None of us flinched for being the first one to open the door. It was just like walking into Timmy's.

I'd recommend claymores.
Seriously, I'd check out the structural integrity during daylight. No such thing as ghosts, but a rotten floor could take the joy out of the experience.
