Talton Lodge
 
Talton Lodge sleeps up to 30 and hosts up to 120. It includes the 18th Century barn but is mostly set in a Victorian kitchen garden with a tree-boathouse, orchard wagon, 2 yurts, 1 North American tipi, cedar pavilion kitchen & 3 bathrooms plus linked giant tipi marquees heated by wood-burner. Bigger groups can expand into a T5 VW Camper van bringing the total beds from 28 to 30.
 

We can accommodate groups in the Kitchen Garden where you can stay in either of:

  • The orchard wagon (A double and a child’s single)
  • The big Mongolian yurt (a double and four singles)
  • The tree boathouse (4 singles or a double and 2 singles)
  • The little Mongolian yurt (4 singles or a double and 2 singles)
  • Secluded Tipi with outside campfire (4 singles or a double and 2 singles)
  • T5 VW Camper with awning for extra £150 (a double in pop-top with seating below)

So that’s 22 beds in 6 places.

The converted 18th century barn has high ceilings and exposed beams. We retained much of what was already there (mangers for sinks, stable partitions for walls, bricks for the bar), and the rest is in keeping with what was there (reclaimed slate dairy shelves for the surfaces, and lime wash for the walls). But now it is cosy and well-equipped with its wood-burning stove, comfortable seating and beds, Tom Hammick tapestries, Wi-Fi, and an HD projector. Downstairs is an open-plan space with well a equipped kitchen (large electric oven, fridge), bar, table large enough for 18, and sofa. Although upstairs is also open plan, beds nestle in 5 niches made by the beams. There is one double and 4 singles, but 2 more singles fit in easily. There are also 2 toilets and a large free-standing bath/shower from where you can see the swallows darting about in the unconverted part of the barn.
