Mount Talbot House was built around 1750 and enlarged in the 1820s by William Talbot. A nursery business operated in the gardens in the 1890s. The house was burnt in 1922 and sold in 1928 with 158 acres for £1300. It is now a ruin in a bad state of repair. Much of it has collapsed and piles of stone have been covered over by vegetation.

Extensive outbuildings and walled gardens suggest that the estate would have been magnificent in its day. Now though ivy has taken a firm grip both inside and out. There are still signs of impressive archways and some of the plaster still clings to the walls. You can also see burnt bricks and plaster presumably from the fire in 1922 which destroyed this magnificent house.
