George Bernard Shaw's writing hut

Shaw's writing hut is featured in The Guardian's Writers' Rooms series. Michael Holroyd points out that this was Shaw's secret lair where he came to hide from people. We all know it rotates but it was also steeped in the white heat of technology. As Holroyd says:
"There was an electric heater, a typewriter, a bunk for Napoleonic naps and a telephone to the house which could be used for emergencies such as lunch: surely everything a writer could need."

  1. these writers rooms are bliss! Thanks for the inspiration! Maybe someday I'll have my own writers room in a garden or with a glass ceiling as well. Perfection. :)

  2. Had the pleasure of visiting Dylan Thomas' writing shed and house in Laugharne. Fantastic experience and the view is spectacular you could see why he loved it so much
