Save The Three Cups Hotel

The Three Cups Hotel

Campaigning for preservation of the hotel where J.R.R. Tolkien stayed and gained inspiration for his mythology. Jane Austen, G.K. Chesterton, Tennyson and H.W. Longfellow were also guests. The hotel featured in the film, “The French Lieutenant’s Woman”. Please send articles to me, Andrew Townsend, at or add a comment. Thanks to David Moss for all his work. Comments are closed at WDDC for the plans to redevelop the site but you can still write to the papers.

Comparison with Burns' Heritage

It is hard to imagine that any of the places associated with the life and work of Robert Burns would be ignored in his native Scotland. It is strange and sad then that a hotel associated with one of England's most famous authors, J.R.R. Tolkien, is no longer open to the public.

There are a number of websites describing Burns' trails and specific places of interest: Burns National Heritage Park, Souter Johnnie's Cottage, and so on.

It would be good if a link to a Tolkien Heritage Trail could suggest a stay at theThree Cups Hotel where Tolkien wrote some of his greatest work.
