About Our Holiday Cottages
A former rectory located in Talaton, within the heart of the East Devon countryside, an area of outstanding natural beauty. The striking Grade II listed 18th Century House sits in acres of beautiful parkland, surrounded by stunning specimen trees as well as contemporary landscaping and gardens.
Beside the house, the original Stables, Groom’s Cottage and Hayloft have been finely converted into four luxurious Cottages, all exceptionally well finished with smart design, stylish furnishings, oak/tiled floors and sleek modern 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 enjoy the generous lower lawns be it for a gentle stroll (dogs on leads welcome) or for a furious game of footie!
Groom’s Cottage, Gardener’s Cottage and Barley House each have a gravelled terrace (table/seating) at the front, made private with attractive planting and pleached trees.
An outstanding location…much thought has gone into making these super cottages individual, stylish and comfortable.
The name Talaton (Taleton DB 1086) means ‘farmstead on the River Tale’, a tributary of the River Otter, whose name is in turn derived from the Old English word getael meaning ‘quick, active or swift’.
The village has a public house, the Talaton Inn, a community run village shop, a manor house, a church St James the Great.
