    “The cottage is beautifully designed and decorated with everything you could possibly need.”

    We and the dog had a very happy week wandering around the Talaton park and countryside.The perfect place to regain sanity…as long as you keep away from the narrow Devon lanes!

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.
