I went to Temple House about fifteen years ago, and always wanted to go back. It was as lovely as I remembered. The views are amazing, with the lake and sheep grazing in the meadows, and the two castle ruins in the background.
Roderick and Helena are delightful hosts, friendly, full of great stories about the estate
which has been in Roderick's family for generations.
The bedrooms are huge, the baths have been updated, and the food is wonderful.
The walks around the estate with the family dogs, make you truly feel like you have
come home. We cannot wait to go back in the fall or winter!
