Temple Sowerby House Hotel - Trip Advisor Certificate of Excellence Winner 2015





The Garden at

Temple Sowerby House Hotel

The hotel stands in two acres of traditional walled gardens divided into three sections.

The first part, nearest the hotel, is made out to a croquet lawn surrounded by flower borders. If the weather is fine, the adjoining Terrace is a very pleasant spot for drinks before dinner.

The second part contains the old greenhouse, which we hope to restore to its former glory. Languishing there at the moment is an old peach tree, which begins to flower during the Spring, the fruit being ready to pick in late Summer. The Greenhouse is now in such a state that I fear the tree will not survive much longer!

The third part beyond the beech hedge is rather a wilderness at the moment but we are gradually reclaiming it with a fruit cage now erected, together with a patch for cut flowers and squashes.

A herb garden was created in the Summer of 2004 to provide a constant source of fresh herbs for the Kitchen. Several types of Mint, Rosemary, Thyme, Oregano, Marjoram, Dill, Roquette and Parsley are grown together with Wormwood, Tarragon and Sweet Cicely.

The garden walls provide sheltered surroundings for cherries, apples, pears and blackberries, whilst raspberries are grown in abundance together with redcurrants, whitecurrants and blueberries.
