Relax in the Lounge, Bar and Gardens

The hotel interiors are stylish, comfortable and warm, with a touch of home; the rooms are individually designed and furnished, with crisp white linen, exquisite fabrics, wonderful upholstery and delicious art.

Gilpin is set in 22 acres of country gardens, moors and woodland far from the crowds, but just a stone’s throw from the breathtaking lakes and fells. Whether you’re staying with us or dining with us, stay a while and explore the gardens. Have tea on the terrace, Pimms in the front garden, tap some balls on the croquet lawn, visit the llamas, or explore the 20 acres of grounds.

Explore and relax!

The Gardens

The Llama Paddock


Most of the Junior Suites open onto one of our south and west facing gardens that was originally a lawn tennis court. We found the lawn equally useful for croquet, a sport more in keeping with a relaxed ambience and a glass of Pimm’s. On the west side of the lawn, we added a llama paddock, often something of a surprise for guests checking into their Junior Suites! Through the gates of the llama paddock, and outside the 6 acres of cultivated gardens immediately surrounding the hotel, are another 14 acres of grounds that are traditional Lake District terrain.
