Temple House is a Georgian mansion situated on 1000 acres of sheep farm and woodland. The owners, the Percevals, have lived on the site since 1665.

Roderick Perceval, the son, has recently taken over the running of the estate, and we found him to be a charming host. Temple House only has 6 rooms to let, so the number of guests is small. We ate meals together at the enormous dining room table, with drinks and coffee afterward in the drawing room, and many hours of pleasant conversation with other visitors. The Percevals make you feel like family or friends, rather than paying guests.
