Temple House is a beautiful Georgian mansion set in an estate of 1,000 acres, overlooking a 13th Century lakeside castle of the Knights Templar.

The Perceval family home since 1665, the present manor was redesigned in 1864 and exudes the authentic and unpretentious country house atmosphere. This is not a hotel or just a bed and breakfast, but an historic home offering unique and luxury country house accommodation.

The impressive estate comprises 1,200 acres of sheep pasture, natural woodland, bog and a lake on which you may row. We encourage you to explore the grounds and enjoy the secluded tranquility.

You will find on site boating, pike fishing, birdwatching, terraced gardens and miles of woodland walks. Within easy reach are beautiful beaches, eagles flying, archaeological sites, horse riding, trout fishing and four championship golf courses. Temple House is just off the Wild Atlantic Way.
