A lovely place to visit, there is a small shop and a cafe. The temple is beautiful and very peaceful, you can sit and let the peace wash over you. The grounds are lovely and you can walk through the woods to a small beach. A very nice calm place to enjoy an afternoon.

A lovely setting for the temple and priory which adds to this place of peace and joy. The grounds lead through woods to a secluded beach. The temple is fantastic, a very special place. There is a great cafe and shop in the priory building.

Stumbled across this place after a weekend away in the Lakes. It is the most peaceful, calm, relaxing place I have ever visited. The temple itself is breath-taking inside and out. After a wonder around inside and a moment to think.....even if you are not a religious person that doesn't matter here. The grounds are so peaceful with a delightful... More

Stayed here for a couple of days to try and put things into perspective, just walking into the centre you can feel the calmness descend over you, the greeting is warm and sincere as are the nuns and monks, stayed in an en suite room which was warm and clean with wonderful views.Vegetarian meals were provided and there was a...

A hidden gem, we visited this with our teenage daughters and even they were amazed by the beauty of this place, set in amazing woodland, this temple and huge home is a thing of beauty and to see the monks walking around was lovely and they were all friendly, we were a bit old fashioned in our view of monks...

This is a gem hidden in an otherwise busy part of the Lake District visited by thousands of travellers each year. Accessible very easily from the M6, this place is not for people who seek materialistic joys, but for the ones who are in search of the ultimate truth. The entry to this Buddhist meditation centre and temple is free,... More

Pretty clean and you can take dogs (on a lead). we were with the grand kids and they loved it. the cafe does good food with good service. inside is fantastic, an old building which has kept its tradition with a...
