A Writers Retreat, A Place to Rekindle Romance away from the Kids, Epic venue for Roleplayers
GREAT DUNMOW, Essex: England. 44 miles north-east of London. Talliston House & Gardens, in a very ordinary looking former council estate is a semi-detached property that has undergone a remarkable transformation. Think Harry Potter and the magical meta-mutations that take place within physical structures and you’re on a path towards discovering what has been done here.
“Talliston is about creating a place where time has no power”
John Trevillian bought the property in 1990 with a vision of creating a unique location for writing and creativity. 24 years later and he has delivered Talliston House. Doors open to those who wish to step away from reality for a day or more.
When asked to describe some of the things going on at Talliston House at the moment, Trevillian responds:
“Well we’re approaching the house as if anything is possible, so a lot of the time people come to us with ideas or suggestions. We have to remember that we are in a normal street in a fairly small town, so are careful that our footprint is kept to small contained events – but we have a supper club running now, murder mysteries, people hire the space for private dinners and small family gatherings, we’ve had storytelling in various rooms at the house –– and we have a writers’ circle and a poetry open mic monthly here too.”
