Tally Hoo House The South West

A stylish stable conversion with an underground pool!

Ready for some fun? Opened in August 2023, Tally Hoo House in Wiltshire, once a stable block, is now a fabulous country hideaway for up to 14 lucky guests. Exposed beams and brickwork offer a sympathetic nod to its past amidst a makeover with the wow factor.

Tally Hoo House is an upside-down house, made for celebrations and get-togethers. Gather your favourite people and don’t forget your cozzies, because it has the best underground pool you’re ever going to find, complete with swim spa, sauna, hot tub and a skylight to the stars!

On the ground floor are six ensuite bedrooms with plenty of family space, plus a separate annexe bedroom for two. The top floor is open plan end-to-end, sweeping from the superb kitchen, through the convivial dining area, and down to the funky sofa space. There’s a bar too, where you can mix your mojitos. Spill outside for drinks in the courtyard, where there’s also table tennis, a barbecue and a fire pit, so you can sit under the stars whatever the season.

Tally Hoo House is made for birthday bashes, sophisticated hen parties and family, friends or corporate getaways. Fill your days playing pool or table football in the games room, let the boys sit on the Xbox if that makes them happy, and head to the pool and spa for a pamper. Spend your evenings in together and let the good times roll in this beautiful corner of Wiltshire.

Guest Reviews

Attention to detail in the house was fantastic with every room beautifully presented...Towels, bathrobes, shampoo & shower gel all provided. The kitchen was very well equipped. The garden had a BBQ, pizza oven and fire pit...Indoor heated swimming pool, sauna, foosball table, pool table and games console. We all had a great weekend and would not hesitate to recommend.
