The house where some of Elton John’s most famous songs were reputedly written is being sold. Bernie Taupin bought the home in Tealby in 1971, to escape the pressures of fame which had befallen him during the four years since meeting EltonJohn. Legend has it in Tealby that Elton John would block the lane with his pink Rolls Royce when he rolled up parties there. It is also said that lyrics for Candle In The Wind were written there and Goodbye Yellow Brick Road was inspired by the road at the bottom of Beck Hill. While Bernie was at the cottage he called Piglet in the Wilds.
