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 North Norfolk, 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.

We are very proud of our guest reviews. Please take a look at what others think about our offering here at The Control Tower Bed and Breakfast on TripAdvisor or Google.

 All our B&B rooms are doubles with period en suites take a look at our ‘Stay with us‘ page to see more detail. To enquire about availability contact Claire & Nigel on 01328 821 574 to talk through your requirements. 

Our breakfasts are vegetarian with ingredients sourced from local suppliers where possible. Quality and flavour are our main priority and luckily for us (and you) North Norfolk has so much delicious produce to choose from. Take a look at our ‘Breakfast‘ page for more information.

We sometimes have special events, open days and special offers – you can join our mailing list if you want to know more. Click here to see a recent copy of Control Tower Calling.
