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.

New Campaign Website

The Save The Three Cups Hotel Campaign have launched their own website at

I recommend that you visit their site and look at all the pages. There is more information there than I have been able to gather from 200 miles away.

I think the photographs of the interior are fascinating. Doesn't that one of the staircase make you want to get some furniture polish out and make that woodwork shine again as it would have done when Maria Garrod was the proprietor and Tolkien was a guest?

Please come back to this blog if you wish to add a comment to any of the postings here.
