Great location
100% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
Master bedroom in “Britain’s Most Extraordinary Home”. Decorated in Scottish Art Nouveau style, this room recreates in nightmarish detail the bed chamber of a seven-year-old Edwardian child complete with books, toys and ephemera. Unlike other rooms, guests who book for the Haunted Bedroom are guaranteed exclusive use of the entire house and gardens for the duration of their stay. But if you have extra guests they can book one of our two other spaces: The Cabin and The Room of Dreams.

The space
Intimate, low lit in period wall lighting and candles. Heavy drapes and wardrobe space. Sounds of ocean at base of cliffs outside windows. Unexplained smells and sounds. Not for the faint hearted.

Guest access
Access to most of house and gardens including Victorian living and dining room, New Orleans kitchen and Boathouse bathroom.

I'm a writer, author and the creative force behind the house and gardens. I love travelling and the Great Outdoors, ancient cultures, castles and am most at home walking in forests. We cook a lot of world cuisine at Talliston and immerse ourselves in embracing all this planet has to offer by way of people and conversations. An old dowager once said I was 'a very dangerous man' and when I asked her why she replied simply: "Because people will see this house and it will give them ideas." And watching everyone who visits our hidden house in the woods, I'm starting to see the danger she meant. A final thought: "Do not ask why is Talliston like this. Ask instead, why isn't the whole world like Talliston."
