The Control Tower on the former RAF North Creake Airfield is a unique vegetarian B&B.

Its history is fascinating as The Tower was originally built in 1943 to command all 199 and 171 Squadrons of RAF 100 group take-offs and landings. These were part of the 100 group of Bomber Command and their mission was to carry out secret radio counter measures.

The Tower has had many uses since then, now it has been transformed into a special place to stay in the bustling agricultural hamlet of Egmere, just 3 miles south of Wells-next-the-Sea.

The exterior has been returned to its iconic landmark modernist look and the owners have filled the interior with art deco fixtures and furniture to ensure a comfortable and relaxed stay. There are 4 double ensuite B&B rooms to book, the Stirling Suite which benefits from its own living/breakfast room and patio doors to the garden. The Signals Room is very spacious and has views over the garden. The Board Room is medium sized and The Controller's Rest Room is the smallest and priced accordingly. All have en-suite facilities and include a tasty and varied cooked vegetarian meal.  An al fresco lunch or picnic can be arranged.

Rooms for £100-£140 a night.
