In the garden

On the site of the former stables, we welcome you in the  comfortable Garden House which provides three rooms. Each room has its own washbasin with hot and cold water. There's a common sanitary room with showers and toilets which are cleaned daily. The renovations on the Garden House were completed in 2019.

Each room is named after a historical person, event, item... valuable to the house or the association. If you have specific preference for a room, please state so in your reservation.

The MacFie room (twin)

Alison Macfie was one of the few nurses that crossed the threshold of Talbot House during the war. In 1922 she founded the ‘Toc H League of Women Helpers’, as a counterpart to the men’s movement.

The Battheu room (twin)

Jeanne Battheu grew up in Poperinge during the war. At Talbot House she attended St. Nicholas parties and concerts. Her entire life she kept on playing our piano for the visitors and served as an inspiration to us all.

The Leonard Browne room (twin)

Leonard Browne was a captain of the Royal Army Medical Corps during the war. He was one of Tubby’s personal friends and often committed himself to the House and its keeper.
