Temple Sowerby is located just off the A66, between Penrith and Appleby. The village is steeped in history featuring beautiful mid-16th century rubble-and-thatch buildings intermingled with 18th and 19th century buildings. The old turnpike road brought the likes of William Wordsworth and Samuel Coleridge to the village as a starting point of their exploration into The Lake District. Why not follow in their footsteps and base your #SummerStaycation around a brand new home on our Chapelfield development in Temple Sowerby and visit some of the top tourist destinations on your doorstep.
