Chesterfield House stands opposite the Town Hall in the centre of Talbot, a gold mining town of relics and treasures found amongst spiraling streets, the smallest town you'll ever be lost in. Stroll through time along roads now silent. Talbot's original architecture is a reminder of it's population peak of over 30,000 during the gold rush.
Wine lovers will find us ideally situated between the Ballarat and Pyrenees wine regions. The Goldfield towns of Clunes, Daylesford, Castlemaine, Avoca, Maryborough, Dunolly, and Creswick are all a pleasant drive away. Talbot is fast becoming a popular destination for enthusiastic cyclists as they can now bring their bikes up by train from Melbourne, enjoy a leisurely weekend checking out the countryside and then catch the train back to Melbourne early Sunday evening.
