the temple

Romance, nature & history meld in this miniature temple – & its all yours! Well, for a night or two at least…  This Grade I folly was built by a reverend, restored by English Heritage & is festooned with Moorish rugs, gilded artworks, extravagant mirrors, scallop-shell lights… fantastic.  Curl up on grand armchairs, put on music or a DVD… & the bed?
