4★ GOLD AWARD - Visit England
Writers Cottage is a house that forms part of Clement Scott Mews which is just in front of Cromer Country Club. The Cottage has been completely refurbished to a high standard. Wood throughout gives it a cosy feel, but at the same time any morning sun floods into the kitchen and dining area, and any evening sun floods into the lounge area giving it a light and airy feel. The bedroom styling was inspired by a visit to Raffles Hotel in Paris.
Writers Cottage is built on the stage area of the former Royal Links Pavilion where rock bands such as The Who, Queen and David Bowie performed.
The Royal Links Hotel was renowned for having eminent guests such as the Prince of Wales, Winston Churchill, Clement Scott - who wrote for the Daily Telegraph and named the area Poppyland, and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle - who was inspired to write The Hound Of The Baskervilles whilst a guest there.
Further historical information is supplied at Writers Cottage.
