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.

Thumbs up for West Dorset's Famous Five hotel PLANS to build a multi-million pound cliff top hotel at Burton Bradstock have been given the go-ahead by councillors.

Famous Five hotel in West Dorset would bring a major boost to local economy MULTI-MILLION-pound plans for a clifftop hotel at Burton Bradstock are expected to get the thumbs-up today – bringing dozens of new jobs and a massive boost for the local economy.

Of course, the big difference between the plans described on the linked articles and The Three Cups is that without the original fabric of the building, it will be impossible to capture the atmosphere of the place where famous writers stayed and thought and wrote and drew and where famous actors performed.
