Gilpin Hotel and Lake House

The Lakeside Escape

Crook Road, Windermere LA23 3NE

Spend a night in one of the glass Spa Lodges at Gilpin Hotel and Lake Houses – each with their own private steam room and hydrotherapy tub – and you will find yourself in wellness paradise. That these cedar-clad lodges, built directly on the lake, also occupy the sprawling grounds of a pristine Edwardian mansion, make this one of the most treasured modern country-house hotel experiences in the UK.

Only a five-minute drive from Lake Windemere, the main estate hosts 25 individually designed bedrooms, each in their own way a portrait of stately elegance. A mile away, cocooned by 100 acres of idyllic greenery, you’ll find the six-bedroom lake house – a bucolic, refurbished fishing lodge with its own state-of-the-art spa facilities, set on a lake.

If there weren’t already enough surprises to be found at this seminal property, Gilpin Hotel is also home to Michelin-starred, Asian-Indian inspired restaurant, HRiSHi. Perhaps a nod to Cumbria’s once burgeoning spice trade, the eight-course tasting menu, featuring dishes like ceviche of hand-dived scallops with carrot purée, followed by duck liver parfait with lychee gel and steamed Chinese bun, makes for one of the most unexpected and extraordinary meals in the Lake District.
