Former Easton Court Hotel Now Holiday Cottage Rental

One portion of the Easton Court Hotel, where Waugh wrote Brideshead Revisited in February-June 1944, is now on offer as a self-catering holiday cottage. This is described on the website Trip Advisor:

A thatched 16th century Devon Longhouse, full of character, exposed beams, an inglenook fireplace, and much more … a real opportunity to live in a bit of history. Just over a mile from the centre of Chagford…The house has a strong literary history, being frequented by famous authors such as Evelyn Waugh who wrote Brideshead Revisited while staying here in 1944… Besides the three double, en-suite bedrooms, the property offers a modern dining kitchen, dining room, library and formal lounge with wonderful inglenook fireplace.

The current price for a week’s rental is £794. The library, where Waugh is said to have done his writing, is pictured in the rental offer and seems to be a part of the rental.
