WELCOME

One of our favourite things that our guests say is that when they think of Gilpin, they think of love and laughter – ours, and theirs, which is a really lovely compliment.

At the heart of Gilpin is a very passionate family and team, dedicated to creating lasting memories for our guests, who return time and again for romance, celebrations and escapes. For us, hospitality starts with a very warm welcome and ends with a friendly goodbye, with extraordinary service, exquisite décor and stunning culinary experiences in between.

We love Gilpin, and very much hope that you will too.

TWO HOTELS - ONE TEAM

At Gilpin Hotel & Lake House, we proudly offer two distinct establishments situated on separate estates, yet operated seamlessly as one cohesive team. Whether you opt for the laid-back ambiance of Gilpin Hotel or the unique blend of a hotel and country house at Gilpin Lake House, your experience with us is designed to be effortlessly harmonious.

Set in 21 acres, Gilpin Hotel has 30 bedrooms, our onsite Spa Space at Gilpin Hotel, two restaurants (the Michelin Starred SOURCE at Gilpin Hotel [renamed from HRiSHi] and the casual pan Asian Gilpin Spice), a Champagne Bar, lounge, terraces, spa treatment area – and our resident llamas and alpacas! Twenty-two rooms have their own hot tubs, some also with a private ensuite spa. 

Please note these are all at Gilpin Hotel (not Gilpin Lake House), so if you’re wanting your own hot tub, the hotel is the place for you!

Just a mile away from Gilpin Hotel you will find Gilpin Lake House, a sanctuary set on 100 acres of private grounds with its own private lake. With just 6 bedrooms sharing the boat house, spa treatment room, hot tubs, saunas, and swimming pool, this is a stunning private, incredibly tranquil paradise. Transport is provided to and from Gilpin Hotel if you are dining at the hotel.  Gilpin Lake House is a perfect wedding venue and is available for exclusive bookings.

Please note that the Lake House spa facilities are only available to guests staying at the Lake House.

STAY...

At Gilpin Hotel & Lake House, our commitment to exceptional hospitality extends to our meticulously crafted bedrooms. Choose between the relaxed refinement of Gilpin Hotel or the intimate charm of Gilpin Lake House, where each bedroom is a haven of comfort and style. Whether you opt for the timeless elegance of the hotel or the rustic chic of the Lake House, every room is designed to offer a tranquil retreat. With attention to detail and personalized touches, your stay with us ensures a seamless blend of luxury and relaxation, allowing you to unwind in ultimate comfort amidst the stunning Lake District scenery.

At Gilpin Hotel all 30 bedrooms have lovely Lakeland views, most leading directly onto the gardens – All 6 Junior Suite and 6 Garden Suites have decked or slate patios with their own outdoor hot tubs, 5 Spa Lodges have their own ensuite spa (rainmaker showers and steam rooms inside, hydrotherapy hot tubs and saunas outside), and 5 even bigger Spa Suites (a bedroom ‘floating’ over the pond with views to the mountains; a living area with lounge, dining table & bar, huge circular stone bath and a double shower; a fabulous spa room with sauna, steam room, infrared lounge bed, a state-of-the-art automated massage chair; and of course a huge hot tub outside).

Gilpin Lake House (a mile away on a separate estate), with only six bedrooms, exudes the charm of a country retreat while offering all the amenities of a boutique hotel. Whether you’re unwinding by the fireside in the lounge, soaking in one of our hot tubs with a glass of Champagne, or taking a dip in the pool, the breathtaking views inspire a deep sense of peace and tranquillity. Gilpin Lake House is a perfect wedding venue and is available for exclusive bookings.
