The centre is such a lovely tranquil haven in our busy lives. The cafe is lovely, everyone we encountered were welcoming and serene. The walks are really pleasant, and as for the surprise of the gorgeous beach at the end of the woodland..all I can say is wow. An absolute must do for anyone who is in need of somewhere offering a place of reflection or just somewhere to gather your thoughts. Amazing!

Upon an unplanned visit we were greeted by a resident who could not have been any more welcoming, the lady gave us an overview of the place and the her fellow residents, then she welcomed us to explore this charming building located next a small lakeside nature reserve and minutes walk from the sea. We left feeling calmer than we arrived due to the spiritual energy of the building its location and most of all the people who live and work their.

I visited Ulverston with the sole purpose of visiting the temple. It did not disappoint. We visited on a Sunday and managed to get there for the Meditation session they have on Sundays. It definitely renewed my love of meditating. Afterwards we had some lunch in the café which was lovely as always, with very good coffee. We then wandered the grounds and took one of the walks down to the beach and sat on the pebbles in the sunshine and just enjoyed the view and the quiet. I would recommend anybody to visit and get back in-touch with their inner self.

Chuck in a very nice cup of tea and we're sorted! We went along to the Open Doors Day. We had a lovely trip around the centre. It was very informative and a real insight into Buddhism, without being over-whelming. We were offered a 15-minute meditation at the end. I do yoga so am used to meditation (in small dozes). My husband hasn't but he wanted to have a go. He really enjoyed it! The cafe is lovely, as is the shop and the walks through the woods are great - down to the shore, for a lovely view across Morecambe Bay. (Dogs are allowed in the woods.) Well worth a visit, especially if you're staying in the caravan site in Ulverston - it's a good, circular walk to Manjushri and back through the woods.

This is an extremely impressive and interesting place, and incorporates a very nice cafe and shop. The golden temple is definately a "must see" (take your shoes off at the door) and the grounds are well kept, with many benches to relax on and soak up the atmosphere.
The Buddhist monks are very approachable and helpful, and come from all parts of the world.....
