Gilpin Hotel offers 25 rooms, all with beautiful lakeland views. Whilst 6 rooms offer cedarwood hot tubs, a further 5 rooms are private, detached lodges with their own en-suite spa. The Gilpin Lake House just a mile away offers just 6 rooms in a private, more intimate setting overlooking a private lake. With a warm, stylish feel, all rooms are individually designed and exquisitely executed.

The experience

At Gilpin Hotel you will find a croquet lawn as well as resident alpacas and llamas. At Gilpin Lake House, a boathouse is at home within the private 100-acre land along with a small, private lake.

the spa

The resort's spa is located at Gilpin Lake House and is therefore off-site if you are staying at Gilpin Hotel. Jetty Spa is designed for couples with a Swedish-style treatment room overlooking a small, private lake. Whilst there is limited availability at Jetty Spa with priority to lake house guests, hotel guests are provided with complimentary passes to Choices Health Club which includes a swimming pool, sauna, steam room and hot tub.


The resort offers traditional Cumbrian cuisine with firm favourites on the menu such as Cumberland sausage and sticky toffee pudding. The Michelin starred HRiSHi creates modern British cuisine with a twist as Lake District produce is combined with incredible flavours. The hotel's second restaurant, Gilpin Spice, has a more relaxed vibe with a menu of tapas-style pan-Asian dishes.

the location

Located in the stunning Windermere, the area has a lot to offer. With a magnificent lake to explore, it is the perfect place to enjoy a boat ride. The nearby town of Bowness-on-Windermere offers beautiful, lakeside walks, independent stores and country pubs. The World of Beatrix Potter is also located in the town.
