    The gardens were lovely and ideal for walking our dog in a safe environment. The village setting was very pleasant with friendly people in the local pub and the community shop, which was just outside the accomodation. All in all a brilliant place!

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.
