Let’s All Go Keep Some Bees With Fluffy Towels

Like most Holmesians, I have cheerfully tooled around London on my own (or with an organized group), visiting the Canon-relevant sites. It’s a necessary pilgrimage. But how about visiting the bucolic country house from the new film “Mr. Holmes” with Sir Ian McKellen? (Do you like how I casually pretend you actually haven’t heard of the movie?)

The lush estate is located in Winchelsea, near Rye, and it’s a National Trust B&B built in the 16th century.

And it turns out you can not only visit Wickham Manor Farm, you can actually stay there. Rooms can be rented from £90 per night, which, from my point of view, is unreal. I have a feeling that price is going to skyrocket very, very soon, but maybe go try to book your stay right now? Note that amenities include “Fluffy Towels.” These are not regular pedestrian towels, folks. These are fluffy, Holmesian towels. Because seriously, would the Great Detective use sub-par materials on his genius backside? HE WOULD NOT.

Read about several of the film’s locations, including Wickham Manor Farm, in an article titled “How to stay in Sherlock’s house from the Mr Holmes movie” by Jade Bremner for Radio Times.

    We all need to go at the same time. Drink wine and dash around London. Catch a few criminals while we’re at it, save the world..
