The Control Tower on the former RAF North Creake Airfield is a unique vegetarian B&B. Its history is fascinating - originally built in 1943 to command 199 and 171 Squadrons 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 is transformed into a special place to stay in the bustling agricultural hamlet of Egmere, just 3 miles south of Wells-next-the-Sea. After three years, our labour of love is complete. The exterior has been returned to its iconic landmark modernist look and we have filled the interior with beautiful art deco fixtures and furniture to ensure your stay will be comfortable and relaxing.

We had a weekend here in the Signals room. The attention to period detail in every room is wonderful and there is a real sense of history to the Control Tower. The veggie breakfast was incredibly good - and as well as the fry-up with slow cooked toms, mushrooms, eggs, beans, potatoes and fried bread, there was some of the nicest local apple juice I've tasted. The period bathroom suite was so deep and comfortable. Nigel and Claire are great hosts and I really enjoyed talking to them about the history of the control tower.

Stopped here for 4 nights and had a great time. The location is idea for exploring the local coast line. Nigel and Claire were wonderful hosts and made us feel very welcome. Parking is no problem. The breakfasts were delicious and filled you up for the day.

We stayed for two nights mid week - our third stay here. We had the Signals Room and love the art deco interiors. Due to Covid19 regulations, only one room is currently let out in the control tower itself so we had the whole tower to ourselves! The vegetarian breakfasts are delicious with a generous selection of choices. We ate in front of a roaring log fire. A perfect break to safely recharge in these uncertain times. Thanks to our hosts Nigel and Claire. We have already booked for next year with friends from America! Can't wait!

What a treat a stay at The Control Tower is! We stayed in the Signals Room for the first time and owing to the limitations imposed by the high standards of CoVID-safety we had the Breakfast Room/Lounge to ourselves as well. We love the Art Deco style and the clever use of stylish modern accessories where needed which complement the look. Breakfasts are delicious and beautifully presented on vintage Woods Ware. We were set up for the day. After dinner at a local pub recommended by our hosts we could relax with a book in the lounge and finish the wine brought back so the driver could have some. The weather was kind so we could sit in the garden and watch Nigel working! The location is ideal for exploring the area. We plan to stay longer next time.

So good to be able to return to this B&B, just a shame that the C19 nonsense should have galvanised us into action. After the traffic horror of the coastal road it was a great relief to turn off the road and see the Control Tower and be offered a welcome cup of tea. We have been here a few times before and we are always impressed at Nigel and Claire’s devotion to the property, but also the history of the place. The new memorial is testament to this We were very happy with the arrangements. Nigel braving the storm to deliver breakfast was above and beyond the call of duty. We are looking forward to our next visit, out of the holiday season.
