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.

Optimism for the Future

I think everyone who was at the meeting in Lyme Regis on 5th June regarding the future of The Three Cups will be feeling optimistic about seeing the hotel open for business. I am even more optimistic for the future of Lyme Regis to see someone as young Leon Howe joining the campaign to save the heritage of his town.

If you read the report in The Lyme Regis News, you will learn about his contribution to the meeting and his commitment to the action group formed then.

Whenever Marcus Dixon of the Lyme Regis Development Trust speaks about the future of The Three Cups Hotel, he pleads for the employment needs of the young people of the town to be taken into account. Obviously, to open The Three Cups again as a hotel would be the best way to bring more tourist business to the area and create jobs. I would say that young people like Leon Howe who are prepared to speak out for what they believe to be right and best for their community deserve a better future. Everyone who can help the campaign should be inspired by Leon to do as much as they can to Save The Three Cups - AS A HOTEL.
