A popular Warwickshire glamping site for weddings, parties and exclusive hire, filled with secret gardens, babbling brooks and enchanting accommodation.

This Warwickshire glamping site is the perfect place to cocoon your family and friends for a weekend: a tempting combination of luxurious yurts, a North American inspired tipi, an orchard wagon and a fabulously unique tree house-boat, all enclosed in a beautiful Victorian walled garden. Situated on a sumptuous country estate, it's available for exclusive hire and can sleep up to 20 people, making it a wonderful option for weddings, parties and group get-togethers. You can also rent it in conjunction with a unique converted barn, which can sleep a further 8 people if required.

Your first sight of Talton Lodge, on the other side of a latched wooden gate, is of the Victorian red-brick walled garden, complete with veggie patches, raspberry bushes, chicken coops and an orchard,  all topped off with a deliciously babbling brook. It is, as the owners say, a sort of outdoors country house, with a large kitchen, three wet rooms, a bar, verandah and sitting room, a 'dancing room' and a dining room in the giant hat tipis, and lots of patches of garden in between. The accommodation consists of 5 bedrooms spread around a colourful array of yurts, tipis, a wagon and a tree boathouse. Each abode comes with a wood-burning stove, proper beds and linen; and, although there's plenty going on here, each has been astutely positioned so guests within your group can enjoy a sense of seclusion.

One thing's for sure, you won't get bored. There's an outdoor table tennis table, boules and mini croquet, and the funky accommodation gives a bit of a summer feel to the gatherings, parties, anniversaries and reunions that they host at Talton Lodge, which also hosts a hatful of activities, from treasure hunts to sausage making, beauty therapy to pottery classes. The outdoor space especially is a paradise for kids, who can run around the grounds to their heart's content. Throw in Talton’s owner Olivia, who trained as a pastry chef under Gary Rhodes and dishes up delicious three-course dinners on demand, and even parents may think they have died and gone to heaven.
