Gilpin Hotel & Lake House

Crook Road, Windermere, The English Lake District, Lancashire, LA23 3NE, United Kingdom

Love at First Sight

In the heart of the Lake District, the Gilpin Hotel & Lake House is a Relais & Châteaux hotel with two luxury country houses, perfect for a rural romantic getaway.

Romance

Located just 2km from the station in Windermere, Gilpin Hotel & Lake House is a small, family owned and run hotel with a welcoming and personal atmosphere. The original Georgian country house, built in 1901, has retained its historic charm but with modern chic touches. It strives to be one of the finest luxury Lake District hotels in Cumbria and has been voted the English Tourist Board Awards for Excellence ‘Small Hotel of the Year 2011’, AA England Hotel of the Year and Conde Nast Johansens Most Excellent Country House Hotel 2013, amongst others. The Gilpin offers bespoke romantic experiences including Champagne, spa treatments and gourmet dining.

Your Stay

The Gilpin Hotel is comprised of 14 rooms and six suites in a separate annexe, each one spacious and airy, with patio doors extending out onto the lush gardens. The Lake House has six secluded suites amongst its 100-acre lands, most with patio doors leading onto the gardens and with spa baths or hot tubs. Quiet and nestled in untouched countryside, whether you have visions of sitting by the fire in the lounge, in the cedar wood hot tub, champagne in hand, or unwinding in the swimming pool, the Gilpin Hotel & Lake House provides peace and tranquillity to all its guests.

What to Do

Set on a stunningly beautiful lake, the Jetty Spa is an idyllic place for couples to relax and unwind. It boasts a 30 foot swimming pool overlooking the lake, a hot tub to recline under the stars, a Salt Scrub Shower to revive your skin, a woodland trail to enjoy the fresh air and a Swedish style spa treatment room raised three metres into the tree canopy, with breathtaking views of the lake. For the more energetic couples, the Gilpin Hotel & Lake House is home to a number of stunning jogging and bike trails and fishing, swimming and rowing in the lake.

The Food of Love

Offering an exquisite dining experience, Chef Dan Grigg’s menu at the Gilpin Hotel & Lake House celebrates some of the finest Lake District produce and West Coast seafood. With a choice of four beautiful dining rooms, each with fresh flowers on the table and candles at night, the restaurant is open to guests for all meals, coffees and afternoon teas on every day of the year.
