We are always surprised by the imaginative forms that business or work events can take.

The Talton Lodge and Talton House spaces are not run-of-the-mill corporate hotel style uniformity.  We're aiming for out of the ordinary, unique, surprising and interesting settings for your events and meetings that are designed to get your creative and inspirational juices flowing.  You should leave with a meaningful and useful experience behind you.

We have the space, staff and facilities (including 300Mbs Ultrafast Broadband)available whether you are organising team celebrations, number crunching, strategic discussions, software development sessions, show-case events (festival style) where their clients book into work-shops on areas of interest to them, and end of year team events or just straightforward light-hearted team bonding sessions.

Whatever your plans, we have great staff, fabulous food, a great wine cellar, 2 bars as well as tennis, croquet, hot tub, snooker, table tennis, team building activities, cycle rides, walks and so on to complement whatever you do.  You can hire a room or the Talton Barn, Talton Lodge or Talton House separately or all three together and we have full board, or half board delegate rates and light touch nearly DIY events.  Please get in touch.

Marquee on the Lawn

If you need another large meeting area for up to 60 (inside) cabaret style, apart from the giant tipi, we have this 9m x 6m canvas marquee which we can erect on the lawn in front of the House.  It has optional sides, optional matting, a diesel heater and has been used for presentations to large groups, dining space, yoga, or large group conversations

The giant hat Tipi

From May to September the 2 giant tipis in the Kitchen Garden can seat up to 90 dining, or 120 theatre style.  We can set up projectors and speakers here, but the  Wifi doesn't reach out here.  In April and October there is just one tipi, taking down the capacity to 32 dining, or 50 theatre.  Adjacent , there is a covered outdoor break out area around the pavilion bar, and an indoor break out area in the large yurt.
