I have known Manjushri for several years and seen several changes. The meditation centre stands on the former site of the old vegetable garden, and the grounds include a lovely sunken garden and the woodlands that lie between the building and the peaceful shoes of Morecambe Bay. The renovation and repair of the building continues, and if a tour is... More

We called here on a whim as we were on the coastal road. We walked through the grounds and into the temple. Everyone was really pleasant and very helpful. You didn't feel pressured into buying anything or signing-up for anything. Rather they were happy to let you explore and experience the lovely environment. We will come back in the summer... More

Manjushri Buddhist temple is a beautiful peaceful place with lots of Buddhist ambience. Everything is laid out so you can visit the temple or gardens and wander down to the beach for peaceful reflection .

One of the best hidden gems I have ever been to. Called in on a rainy February afternoon and couldn't believe how breathtakingly beautiful it was. The grounds are kept in perfect condition and the temple itself was pristine. Staff all very friendly and polite and the short walk to the beach was very peaceful and serene. Would definitely recommend... More

What a beautiful peaceful place this is. So welcoming. Little gem among the lake district. Definitely worth a visit. Nothing is thrust In your faces we were completely left alone and questions were welcomed.

What a great experience . Coffee was wonderful with some unique drinks options . We were not ready to eat but menu looked very interesting. Some of the antiques for sale in the cafe/shop were really quirky ..... old Clocks, old hats, old photos . Very worthwhile . Proprietors very personable .

I visited here at the weekend with my family, we stopped on our way to the South Lakes Safari Park. As a complete novice, I have recently tried to explore meditation and have been watching you tube videos as to how to go about this. I was curious as to what this visit would bring. We attended the daily 12.30... More

Lovely place, the people are so warm, friendly and helpful. Delicious cakes in the cafe, the warm scone with ham and cream was delicious! Great to be able to wander around the grounds and felt very honoured to take part in a free meditation session. Left feeling very peaceful and content.

Have visited this temple several times. A very tranquil place to be. The grounds are beautiful as well as the temple and the priory. There are walks through the grounds down to the water overlooking the bay. There is also a great cafe in the main building with lovely food and drinks.
