Located in the picturesque national park, you will find Gilpin Hotel and Lake House near Windermere in the Lake District. This luxury hotel belongs to the Relais & Chateaux collection and is a wonderful combination of traditional and modern, with luxurious fabrics and stylish design.

The Cunliffe family turned Gilpin into a hotel back in 1988, where it started off with only 5 bedrooms. The family has a true passion for luxury, making it what it is today. It is a highly regarded country house hotel with award winning food and a very extensive wine list.

Executive Chef Hrishikesh Desai joined Gilpin Hotel and Lake House in 2015 and creates some mouthwatering dishes, using local produce wherever possible. The restaurant has proudly held 3 AA Rosettes since 1997. The sommelier works hand in hand with Hrishikesh by matching fine wines to perfectly complement each dish.

At the hotel there have been various stages of expansion and extensions over the years, adding new bedrooms, garden room and new bar area. Fourteen of the twenty bedrooms lead directly onto the immaculate gardens, with the contemporary Garden Suites all featuring a private hot tub and beautiful views.  The grounds include a croquet lawn, which was originally a lawn tennis court. There are wonderful candlelit paths leading to different areas with plenty of surprises in store, and a pretty terrace where you can sit, relax and enjoy a glass of your favourite tipple. Features include ponds, waterfalls and beautiful plants and trees.

The stunning Gilpin Spa Lodges are the latest addition to Gilpin Hotel and are among the best places to stay in the Lake District, with private hot tubs, steam room and outdoor sauna.

Just a mile away, Gilpin Lake House is quite literally a sanctuary. Each of the luxury suites enjoy exclusive access to 100 acres of private grounds, including a stunningly beautiful four-acre private lake, swimming pool and the fabulous Jetty Spa, Summer Room, kitchen gardens, boat house, Druid’s Circle, mature woodland, moorland, grassland and wild ponds.

A warm welcome is always received at Gilpin Hotel and Lake House and the service that follows is first class. Many people return to this special hotel year on year and you will have to try it to see why.

Gilpin Lodge is truly one of the most fabulous places in the UK. The service received from The Cunliffe family and their staff is second to none. The styling of the hotel is comfortable luxury, without being pretentious. Every time I visit Gilpin, I walk away fully relaxed and well looked after.

Gilpin Lodge is one of my favourite places to escape to. The service is always great and the staff are very friendly. Food is delicious and always presented very well. I always look forward to Gilpin, whether it be lunch or a weekend away. Barney and his team have created something very special.
