We saw this place on the way past so decided to turn round and have a look. The drive way had a lot of pot holes and a couple of bad speed bumps and was only one car width. The place has been converted from a church and has been altered. There is a cafe and a shop in the... More

Immediately calming place to visit; take a stroll around the outside of the building; go for a coffee (very good quality and reasonably priced at £1.50 per person); visit the spectacular temple (don’t forget to put on the shoe covers that are provided to protect the beautiful carpet) and if you are lucky (like me) and interested, be there at...

Buddhist meditation centre close to sea in middle of ulverston. If meditation is not your cup of tea do visit the café which is very reasonably priced and is manned by volunteers and Buddhist monks. Once you have enjoyed your cup of tea and sandwiches explore the secret passages through the woodlands leading to the sea. Meaningful activity free of... More

Having rediscovered this historic haven last year it gave us real pleasure to introduce it to friends who were holidaying with us this month. TEMPLE, Shop & views from their terrace are each worth the discovering.

Well worth a visit as the temple is exceptional, view the inside and if you feel inclined join one of their meditation classes which are run twice daily. You can walk around the gardens and down through the woods to the shore where you can enjoy panoramic views across Morcambe Bay before stopping at the priory restaurant for a meal... More

Having seen the temple from the road, I had to visit this beautiful and tranquil place. I could have stayed for hours sitting in the temple, but a noisy coach load of school children arrived, so we went to walk around the grounds. Yes I will make an effort to visit again when in the area.

Have just spent two weeks at the summer festival, vamping first then in a single room for the last few days. A wonderful experience meeting so many friendly people. Food is vegetarian (or vegan) and always delicious. A wonderful place to gain insight into Buddhism and enjoy the meditations. Lots of lovely walks through quiet woods or along the shore.... More

You dont have to be a Buddhist or even religious to appreciate the beauty of the temple and its grounds. Entry is free, parking is free (at one of the many car parks eg lakeside, woodland etc). Visitors are encouraged to wander through the grounds or visit the Temple and marvel at the lifestyle and artwork of the Buddhist way... More
