The House at Temple Sowerby is set in the lovely village in the heart of Cumbria's Eden Valley - a true hidden gem to be discovered! Wonderful landscapes, castles, the River Eden itself make exploring a rewarding experience. Ullswater, England's most beautiful lake, is just a 15 minute drive away and Temple Sowerby is a good base for touring the Northern Lake District. Cosy rooms, a lovely walled garden and delightful food from Head Chef Jack combine to make your stay a pure pleasure! Call us direct or check out our website for the best rates.
