    “My family and I stayed in Barley House for a week after Christmas and over new years eve.”

    The hosts had decorated the property with a Christmas tree, which was a lovely welcome for our party. We selected the property for the spacious open plan living accommodation for our party of five and our labrador. There was plenty of room for the dog cage and we were able to walk our dog around the grounds of the property. There were local walks listed in the accommodation guide in the property which was very helpful. The kitchen was well stocked with plenty of utensils, pans and ovenware. However, if any future guests did not want to cook, there were plenty of places to eat near by. And a pub within a stones throw. The three bedrooms where spacious; the first floor having their own bathrooms, and the ground floor having a neighbouring bathroom. The underfloor heating was lovely on your feet in the bathrooms. As were the waterfall showers, fluffy towels, and cotton bedding. Overall the property was comfortable, warm, homely and spacious. We would certainly return and recommend Barley House to our friends and family.

Talaton House Cottages

In the heart of Talaton is striking Grade II listed Talaton House, a former rectory, renovated from its 18th century origins and surrounded by acres of beautiful parkland and specimen trees. Beside the house, the original stables, Groom's Cottage (975996) and Hayloft (975999) have been finely converted with flair into four excellent cottages, all exceptionally well done with smart design, stylish furnishings, oak/tiled floors and sleek kitchens. A sweeping drive (shared with the friendly owners & main house) leads to the cottages. They all look over scenic parkland alongside the main house and you are welcome to wander the vast lower lawns (picnic benches, barbecue area, dogs on leads welcome) and peaceful circular woodland walk. Groom's Cottage (975996), Gardener's Cottage (975997) and Barley House (975998) each have a gravelled terrace (table/seating) at the front, made private with attractive planting and pleached trees. Loading/unloading outside the cottages; shared parking area, just beyond (10 to 30 yards). An outstanding location; much thought has gone into making these superb places individual, stylish and comfortable.
