Gilpin Hotel & Lake House Cumbria

“Immaculate, Relais & Chateaux country house hotel, with luxurious bedrooms and private suites. A separate Lake House with suites, pool, spa and rooms with private Hot Tubs. Set in 40 acres of stunning surroundings with a picturesque lake and lots of activities to offer nearby.”

Photo of Gilpin Hotel & Lake House

“The Lake District (here a peaceful hillside with moor beyond the boundary) will never have seemed so sybaritic as in this enveloping, highly professional, but always friendly hotel. Owner John Cunliffe's grandmother lived here for 40 years; nowadays it has deluxe bedrooms with superb bathrooms and, in the new suites, outdoor hot tubs, plus AA 3 rosette food and highly attentive service. Prices to match: one for a treat.”

Gilpin Lodge Country House Hotel

"Gilpin Lodge, at the southern end of the Lake District, is a well-established hotel, run by the Cunliffe family for 25 years. I would say, if it were a person, that it's comfortable in its own skin."
