Gilpin Hotel & Lake House

At the heart of the 5-star Gilpin Hotel & Lake House is a passionate family whose goal is to create everlasting memories for their guests. The extraordinary service and Michelin-starred cuisine work together to form a place of warmth and friendliness. Each bedroom has lovely views, six rooms with hot tubs, and five with steam rooms, hot tubs and saunas.

What makes a stay at Gilpin Hotel & Lake House unique?

The five fabulous detached Spa Lodges each have individual ensuite spas (treatment beds, steam room, rainmaker shower and stone bath inside, hydrotherapy hot tub and sauna outside) for a very special, private experience.

What are the rooms and facilities on offer at Gilpin Hotel & Lake House?

Gilpin Hotel is set amid 21 acres of the Lake District, the Spa Lodges and the Garden Suites are onsite, not at the Lake House, so if guests fancy a personal hot tub then the hotel is the place to be. The hotel houses 25 bedrooms in total, each have lovely Lakeland views, and most lead directly onto the gardens – six Junior Suites have patio doors leading onto the gardens with their own patio area, whilst six large open plan Garden Suites have their own decked area with individual cedarwood hot tubs.

What can guests enjoy when staying in the Windermere area?

The stunning landscape of the Lake District that treats one's eyes to glacial ribbon lakes, rugged fell mountains, historic literary associations, market towns, traditional inns, and galleries of local art.

Where can guests enjoy food and drink?

HRiSHi is where great Lake District produce meets classic method through the design of Desai's imaginative food. The restaurant delivers modern British dishes with a twist of Asia: unbelievable textures and flavours are able to satisfy traditionalists whilst satisfying the thrill-seeking experimentalists. Gilpin Spice is an informal restaurant with inspired décor and an open kitchen transcending international boundaries. Its focus is to deliver a selection of sharing dishes, Desai personally sources the spices used to take guests on a spice trail journey that encompasses the Indian sub-continent, Malaysia, Thailand, Indonesia, the Philippines, Japan and China.

Other Information

The Gilpin Lake House is just a mile from the hotel and houses six stunning rooms that all share a fully staffed boutique hotel that delivers a heated indoor swimming pool, outdoor hot tubs and saunas, and exclusive access to 100 acres of grounds that hides a beautiful, small private lake. Gilpin Lake House omits the air of a country house but with all the services of a hotel. Breakfast is served at the Lake House and a complimentary chauffeur is available to take guests to dine at HRiSHi or Gilpin Spice. The breath-taking viewpoint “Cat's Crag” is amongst the 21 acres and has 360degree Lakeland views and is the perfect habitat for the herd of wild deer living nearby. Alternatively, a fresh walk around the lake and the gardens are a special way to spend a morning. For those feeling a tad more energetic, there are some stunning runs and bike trails, coarse fishing for the initiated, the option for a swim in the lake, or just a bit of fun on the water in one of the rowing boats.
