You can do a few things...

It is possible that a new game save has been made and this means that you will have no home to go back to.

I have 2 suggestions for you.
- You could continue searching your map for your house and/or looking for landmarks you remember being around the location of your house.
- You could create a new game save and start from the beginning again.

Fortunately with a game like Minecraft, it doesn't take very long to get back to where you were and it can actually be enjoyable as you can recreate your house and change parts that you weren't 100% sure about in the older version.

I hope I managed to help you a little.

There's no easy way to find it, and it may not happen at all. In future, start a map, and kill yourself. This will bring you to the spawn point. Build your house here, whenever you die, you will respond here. Also, anyone joining your game will also spawn there.

That's what I do normally or I make a path from the spawn point to my house

Make a bed. Sleep in it and then if u die it takes you ro your bed.

Or you can go to your home and do /setworldspawn so if you get lost just do /kill then boom your home πŸ˜‰

If you can make a new creative world with the same seed find where your house would be on that world and mark it then find where you are now and mark it
Now from the point that you marked slowly get back home while flying
Every 10-60 seconds go on survival and do the same until you find your house
Hope this works since it worked for me good luck

There are no maps that I can see on iPad I have been walking north and there is nothing any advice my land is flat and am on!!!😞
Guest said: 4th Oct 2015 | REPORT
Go to creative and find where you house would be. Then do a trail leading from your house to where you were before. Go into survival and follow trail.

/keepinventory True only works for PC and it doesn't keep your inventory, it deletes it

Guest answered:

You can always go in a random cave and collect some Redstone and iron. Then make a crafting table and make a compass. Always works for me, like the time I made 2 portals in the nether and used the second portal and I ended up in a completely different place. Wish ya luck! 😺😺😺😺

Guest answered:

There is nothing you can do about it so sorry. I made a huge replica of my house in real life and my brother got on it and killed me. When I went back on I was spawned in the middle of I where on and infinite word. I am so angry because I already rebuilt that house twice because it caught on fire the first time

If you build your house at or near your sowan location, you will always spawn near it. You can also craft a compass with some redstone and some iron ingots. A compass (in Pocket Edition) will always point at your spawn point. On the PC version, it even points at the bed you slept in last.

I was lost completely and decided to build a new base of operations with a mine etc. I decided I would not be lost again. Once I mined the needed Items I made a compass and from there learned how to use. What I didn't understand was why it pointed away from my new location. I grabbed a bunch of torches, signs, supplies and headed out in the direction I was being pointed. This took a fair amount of time and I got a chance to really explore and set up several waypoints with supplies etc. After some time I was pleasantly surprised having been lead back to my original camp. Learned a good lesson, hope this helps.

Guest answered:

Hi I know how but your memory is needed. Find out which way the sun rises or sets and workout which way your house is from there.

Guest answered:

It worked. Thank you so much. My son built an awesome castle. Died, re spawned lost and was so upset. Select compass, hold it and turn yourself around so it points north. Follow it and ta dah your home should appear in front of you. Thank you thank you thank you

Guest answered:

Before you start going somewhere , get a hole lot of blocks and then head out the diricktion you think the home is placeing a block wall going and if your is'nt there the following the block path wall collecting them and when your back where you started from keep going different ways tell your home

Guest answered:

If you're in creative then switch to survival and drown in the will lose your Items but you will spawn in your house if your bed is there

Guest answered:

You needed a compass. It will point to your original spawn location.
