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.

Let the people decide

According to an article in the Bridport News today, plans are in place to ask every resident in Lyme Regis to sign a petition if they support the aims of the Save The Three Cups AS A HOTEL Action Group.

At the public meeting on 5th June, the 235 people present voted unanimously in favour of preserving The Three Cups Hotel AS A HOTEL. It will be interesting to see how representative that group was.

By the way, in case you missed it, there was a story in the Bridport News on 16th July about discussion of the hotel's future at West Dorset District Council.
