"A quirky, charming country house hotel"
We broke our journeys to Scotland here. We loved the hotel and it meant we had something to look forward to on our return at the end of our holiday!! The couple who run the hotel are extremely hospitable and helpful, our room on each occasion was very clean, quiet and spacious. The food is delicious - we had dbb each time- and the whole atmosphere is tranquil and unhurried. Read less
Likes:
The hosts, the lovely gardens and the slightly old fashioned (in the best sense and without being at all stuffy) atmosphere
Dislikes:
Nothing! It was just lovely!
Response from Temple Sowerby House Hotel & Restaurant:
Thank you so much for your kind review and we're very happy that you enjoyed your stopovers so much! We're in a very handy spot for Scotland stopovers and many of our guests enjoy our hospitality on their way north or south. Look forward to seeing you next time!

The Eden Valley is an area of outstanding natural beauty between the English Lake District and the Pennines and one of it's finest, and most peaceful, villages is Temple Sowerby, home to Temple Sowerby House Hotel.

Dating back to 1700's, and now with just 12 individually styled bedrooms, elegant reception rooms, a peaceful walled garden and an award-winning restaurant. Our restaurant has been awarded Two AA Rosettes and offers a superb range of local produce including lamb from the fells, beef and pork from nearby farms, game from neighbouring estates, seafood from the north-western coast and regionally produced cheeses.

The beauty of the English Lake District, especially Ullswater, the wild and rugged terrain of the Pennines and the sublime rural landscapes of the Eden Valley are just some of the outstanding natural attractions to be experienced from Temple Sowerby House.

The quiet roads are ideal for touring or cycling whilst the countryside and fells provide excellent walking opportunities for all ages and abilities.
The River Eden itself has some of the best trout fishing in the country.

Please Note: Check in Time 15:00, Check out 11:00am. Pets and children under 12 not permitted.
