"Superbly comfortable hotel in beautiful surroundings"
Two night stay in a double room for a short break. Read less
Likes:
Spacious room was excellent with every comfort and spotlessly clean - free WiFi included. Food in the hotel was superb with local produce, freshly cooked and beautifully served.
Dislikes:
For us the hotel was a little bit too quiet - but this may have just been the time of year? We found the meals expensive, but acceptable for a special occasion given the quality of what was provided.
Response from Temple Sowerby House Hotel & Restaurant:
Thank you for taking the time to review. Sorry you thought it a bit quiet...many people love it! We only have twelve rooms in total and half were in use during your stay, so not TOO quiet! More relaxed and comfortable...Ash's food has always been, rightly, highly praised and our prices actually the lowest of any similar-rated restaurant in the lakes. Quality is always worth paying for...

The Excellent breakfast and the friendliness of the staff.
Dislikes:
We thought the room 5 was a bit tired and needed some love. The evening meal was good however we both thought that it was probably over complex. An attempt at Master chef cooking but not a finalist.
Response from Temple Sowerby House Hotel & Restaurant:
I really don't think you understand what good food is.....I have rarely seen a more perfectly cooked piece of fish than the one you insisted was 'undercooked'! Fish should always be only just cooked and a hint of translucence at the heart is perfection. A little more knowledge may help you. It was actually room 3 you stayed in and it has been very nicely designed and, again, you obviously do not understand contemporary design, complaining about the complementary fabrics! Great bathroom too...

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.
