Temple Sowerby House Hotel & Restaurant is a wonderfully relaxing country hotel situated in the heart of Cumbria's Eden Valley, an area of outstanding natural beauty. This grade II listed house is located in the centre of this conservation status village and is a perfect base for exploring the area including the Lake District, Yorkshire Dales, Pennines and Hadrian's Wall.

Dramatic walks, serene lakes, spectacular waterfalls, attractive towns and villages, great drives, country pursuits, farmers markets, cycle routes, specialist shops, historic castles, houses and gardens, the area offers something of interest for everyone.

Each of the hotel's 12 comfortable and stylish bedrooms has its own appeal and character, many featuring ultra-modern bathrooms and aqua-spa baths. Elegant Georgian reception rooms create a relaxed atmosphere with roaring fires on cooler evenings.

The new Restaurant, constructed from local, mellow sandstone overlooks the peaceful walled garden and is a delightful setting for both breakfast and dinner. The 2 AA Rosette menus blend contemporary and traditional British styles whilst featuring the best of seasonal, local and garden-grown produce.

Elegant rooms, discreet service and personal attention are the hallmarks of our unstuffy hospitality, described by a recent guest as 'combining smart living, great food with dressed-down friendliness'.
