Temple Sowerby is a village between Penrith and Appleby. Set around a village green,it gets its name from the Knights Templar, who once owned Sowerby Manor, though later the Knights Hospitallers were lords of the manor until the middle of the 16th century. The village, in which mid-16th century rubble-and-thatch buildings intermingle with 18th and 19th century buildings, is one of few Westmorland villages retaining a maypole. On the edge of the village is Acorn Bank garden and Acorn Bank Mill, which is owned by the National Trust, and whose herb garden contains the largest collection of some 250 species of cullinary and medicinal plants in the North of England.
Originally built in the 17th century, The House combines old world history with modern day luxury and tech.
