Welcome to The Control Tower

The Control Tower on the former RAF North Creake Airfield is a unique vegetarian Bed and Breakfast.

Its history is fascinating  - originally built in 1943 to control all 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.

Once our labour of love was complete we opened the doors of the B&B in June 2014. 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.
