My wife & I spent a couple of days at The Temple. What an amazing place & a wonderful 'get away'. The setting & accommodation is truly unique. You really will not have experienced anything like this before. It would suit a self contained break/hols or base for visiting the surrounds. The hospitality of the owner is without bounds and...

I hesitate in even beginning to write this review...I have often commented via TripAdvisor on a variety of our international travel experiences with an objective of being informative to future guests and constructively feeding back to owners and proprietors.

This truly is one of the most romantic places to stay in the world. The photos do it justice but the main room was larger than we expected. The Temple overlooks a large lake and there are intricate pathways, tunnels, lovely gardens, tucked-away seating areas. From the outside it is Grecian, inside it is Italian meets Somerset Maugham Far East....

A unique and beautiful place for a quiet weekend together. Everything about The Temple is superb from the eclectic and lush decor to the high quality booze and goodies provided. I had high expectations from the website but they were exceeded at every turn - great selections of wines beers and spirits and 'everything you need for breakfast' would have...

Spectacular Grounds. Wonderful vacation rental on 300 acre estate all to yourself. Wonderful gardens and stone tunnels with statuary. On a pond. Go with someone you love and want to create some memories with. It really is a magical experience for two.

Mrs Y and I celebrated our honeymoon at the Temple and stayed for 4 nights. Dave the Sat Nav had a bit of a nightmare trying to find the place but we had a good look round the country lanes. The directions from Nic were spot on down to the T (an in joke if you'll get when you visit)...
