team meetings & away days

Training Venue

Talton House and Lodge provide a unique background for any team-building event, conference, retreat, or residential course. We can offer facilities for groups of up to 80 for day events and have residential accommodation for up to 39 people in 16 ‘rooms’ (includes 2 bedrooms for five people, 1 for four, 3 triples, 6 twins, and 4 singles).

We have 3 large fields and a 3 hectare wood, so we have plenty of room for outdoor activities - clay pigeon shooting, treasure hunts, bush craft, raft building, or just a game of football and rounders.

Meeting spaces:

Talton House

The Hall is our main all year round meeting room. It seats up to 40 theatre style and 30 dining. There are 4 available break out rooms adjoining the Hall - the drawing room with soft seating up to 12 (can easily fit more on regular chairs), the sitting room with soft seating up to 10, the bar with cabaret seating up to 12, and up to 20 around the Dining Room table. If you want a large covered space on the front lawn of the House, we can erect our white canvas 9x6m marquee, which can seat up to 80 theatre style, or 60 dining. In the evening for a celebration or team reward, we can turn the House into your team's private club for the night with music, cocktails and fine dining

Talton Lodge: The Kitchen Garden

From May to September, we have both giant tipis up in the kitchen garden, they can seat up to 50 in each, but are usually joined to make one large space - 25x10 metres, easily seating 80. They are furnished with sofas, chairs, benches, tables. We can also put our projector and speakers here, but the Wi Fi doesn’t go this far. They also make a great dining room.
