About

YOUR INVITATION TO BE PART OF THIS EXTRAORDINARY PROJECT... AND THE NEXT!
For almost thirty years, this unique and extraordinary project has been funded by ordinary people on a journey to achieve the impossible. The culmination of half a century of design, sourcing and rebuilding, it is now time for the next step – creation of a community of like-minded people to support this living, breathing fantasy world – and ensure Talliston a timeless, prosperous and sustainable future.

Being a Friend of Talliston has always been free and the people that make Talliston a success have always given their time for free, but to move forwards we need to change and grow. Magic and enchantment – like everything else – costs money, and that money has to come from somewhere. To do greater things, we must become greater.

The Talliston Fellowship has been set up to take Talliston's most precious resource – its people – and build a better 'now' for everyone.

By becoming a fellowship member, your on-going support will:
  • create the time and money to secure the future of the house and gardens forever
  • provide an open and accessible venue for anyone who wishes to escape the modern world into one of wonder and imagination
  • fund a permanent community space for writers, artists and craftspeople
  • support the creation of The Talliston Grimoire: The Magical Guidebook To Britain's Most Extraordinary Home
  • support the plans and structure for the next extraordinary project: Ringthorne Woods & Village
We hope you’ll understand and support us – and become a valued and integral part of this new and exciting journey.

WHAT IS TALLISTON HOUSE & GARDENS?
Behind an arched oak door set in a thicket hedge lies Talliston House & Gardens. This once ordinary house hides a magical labyrinth of rooms, each set in a different time and place. Twenty-five years in the making, the project has taken the most ordinary of English dwellings – a three-bedroomed, semi-detached, ex-council house in Essex – and painstakingly transformed it into a wonderland of inspirational locations where time truly has no power.

The finished house and gardens comprises thirteen stunning locations. Each room is infused with a rich story, incorporating almost 2,000 objects sourced from 27 countries around the world – and set in a labyrinth design where guests get to leave behind the outside world and walk between the walls of reality.

Talliston is an exploration of the concept of the extraordinary within the ordinary. It’s about realising how we each have inside us the power to be whatever we want and to live any life we can imagine – and appeals to anyone who yearns an escape from the mundane modern world into a life made magical.

WHAT IS THE TALLISTON GRIMOIRE?

Brought together for the first time in one volume, The Talliston Grimoire: The Magical Guidebook to Britain’s Most Extraordinary Home explores the myth, magic and lifestyle of Talliston. Set out like an arcane spell book, this comprehensive guide to the history and creation of the project, including a complete Book of Days calendar, cookbook spanning the thirteen rooms of the house and gardens, life secrets of the Talliston Oracle, spells for living a magical life --- and much more… Within its pages you will discover how this remarkable imaginary world was brought to life – and how to bring that wonder into yours.

WHAT IS RINGTHORNE WOODS & VILLAGE?
People always ask: what's next? Ringthorne is the answer. While Talliston created a wonderland inside the constraints of a normal home, Ringthorne will take ordinary rooms and create them inside purpose-built houses, each building to form a village in the woods. Imagine a timeless world inside an enchanted forest where music, song, art and wellbeing combine to provide a sustainable, self-contained environment. Currently in its final planning phase, John Tarrow is the creative director set to make this a reality.

While funding for Ringthorne is a much larger project, a part of support at the higher levels of the fellowship will go towards bringing this new and exciting project to life. This is your chance to be at the beginning of a new and exciting adventure – and to invest in another world-changing and impossible idea.
