LUXURY BREAKS INSIDE THE MAGICAL WORLD OF
HOUSE & GARDENS
Experience what it's like to sleep in one of Talliston's extraordinary rooms, and get to explore the house and gardens
with a deluxe bed & breakfast overnight stay. We will be on hand when you arrive to give you a look around the property and settle you in to what we hope will be the most magical and mysterious night you will ever spend in a B&B.
Unlike other B&Bs, guests who book The Haunted Bedroom or The Room of Dreams also have access to all the rooms in the main house to explore for the duration of their stay. And if you have extra guests it's easy to book them into one of our other extraordinary rooms. Plus there's the opportunity to enhance your experience with a range of magical upgrades including a full house & gardens tour with creator and author, John Tarrow, afternoon tea, enchanted supper or a selection of welcome baskets, sweet and savoury hampers, al fresco dinner for two, overnight essentials and more.
We are currently open for short breaks (2+ nights) and overnight stays at weekends, plus extended dates around Christmas, Halloween and spring holidays, but if you have a magical celebration or event that falls upon dates not showing as available, please contact us to check if we can accommodate.
THE HAUNTED BEDROOM
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.
THE ROOM OF DREAMS
All the romance and mystery of a Moorish bedchamber, complete with Zellige tiles, Queen-sized brass bed and mosquito netting. The room is filled with artefacts and treasures collected from travels around the world. Fall asleep to the sound of the wildlife of the Spanish hills, under a canopy of glittering stars.
Finalist for Channel 4 / George Clarke's Shed of the Year, this period log cabin comes complete with all the fittings and fixtures of a trapper's house in the Canadian wilderness. Sit by the fire and relax to the sounds of the great outdoors before climbing into the gallery sleeping area for an authentic rustic night’s slumber.
Enhance your visit or overnight stay with one of our magical, locally sourced, handcrafted magic hampers from Meadow Hill. All hampers are for two people to share with extraordinarily generous portions, all homemade and cooked fresh for your arrival.

NEW ORLEANS FRIDGE STOCK
We also offer to go shopping for you – as, while we always provide sparkling water, milk, butter, sauces and jams (or equivalents for vegetarian and vegan guests), we'll be happy to stock up on some overnight essentials. Just send which items you require as a shopping list and everything will be there for you upon your arrival.
And for that special occasion we can arrange a celebration bottle of premium fizz, red or white wine plus either finest chocolates or cheese & crackers.
