    if you read the tower’s website you’ll see that it was ALWAYS a house and a water tower, the windows and living accomodation were built in from the beginning and so it is not a conversion. The only modification is the later removal of the tank to make a double-height games room. Aslo it’s for holiday letting, not bed & breakfast.

    I’ve stayed here and it really is an amazing place. The man who built it was a pretty strange guy too. He had a thing about Peter Pan and wanted to recreate some of the magic of the story.

    Similar to the Hotel L’Auberge watertower in Punta del Este, Uruguay. See: http://www.laubergehotel.com/ingles/index.php and click on the “hotel” and “tower” tabs, also look for images.
