ESCAPE TO EXCLUSIVITY: YOUR SECLUDED HAVEN BECKONS

“The Lake House is like a decompression chamber for stress – you simply feel your body relax”

Since 1919 and spanning six generations, the Cunliffe family and our guests have been coming together at the Lake House for celebrations, short breaks, and holidays. With just six rooms sharing the lake and 100 acres of private grounds, Gilpin Lake House provides an inspiring and peaceful location, perfect for celebrations and get-togethers.  Gilpin Lake House is fully serviced with Relais & Châteaux trained staff and Michelin-starred chefs, and our highly experienced and dedicated team looks after each function from start to finish, balancing warmth and friendliness with extraordinary service, exquisite décor and stunning culinary experiences.

Enter through electric gates to discover this beautiful sanctuary within one of the greatest National Parks – surrounded by stunning woodland in the heart of a 100-acre Lake District estate, Gilpin Lake House is quiet, untouched, and devoid of traffic or people – a place to forget about everything.  The interiors are stylish, comfortable and warm, with a touch of home; the sumptuous bedrooms are individually designed and furnished, with crisp white linen, luxurious bathrooms, exquisite fabrics, wonderful upholstery, and delicious art.

Gilpin Lake House is on three levels with a beautiful entrance and sweeping staircase, a large lounge scattered with sofas, armchairs and bookcases, floor-to-ceiling windows and log fire, and a huge conservatory with floor-to-ceiling glass on two sides where it is almost impossible to be closer to nature yet still be indoors.

 

On the lower floor you will find a heated indoor swimming pool and sauna leading directly onto the gardens and lake where you can sink into one of the hot tubs, and to the ‘Jetty Spa’ treatment room raised 3 metres into the tree canopy, with floor to ceiling windows overlooking the lake. Our skilled spa therapists expertly use only the best products from ESPA and Pure Lakes, to ensure a truly indulgent experience for every guest.

Elsewhere in the grounds, you will find a boat house, a Druid’s Circle, mature woodland, moorland, grassland and wild ponds. The lake has two rowing boats and is home to a large collection of wild ducks; bird tables are abundant with wild birds from the surrounding woodland, and red squirrels can be spotted. Take a leisurely stroll to “Cat’s Crag,” where breathtaking vistas of the Lake District await. Marvel at the distant mountain ranges of Coniston & the Llangdales, and keep an eye out for the majestic wild deer and birds of prey that call this area home. With each step, immerse yourself in the serenity of Gilpin Lake House, where relaxation and natural beauty await at every turn.

For many, a good book, and a comfy chair by the fire overlooking the lake is simply enough, and whilst the entrance gates stop no one from leaving, many guests choose not to…  Conveniently located, Gilpin Lake House is just a short taxi ride (20 mins) from Oxenholme station, making it easily accessible for guests travelling from afar. Experience the magic of Gilpin Lake House – where every moment is infused with tranquillity and romance.

GILPIN LAKE HOUSE BEDROOMS

All Lake House bedrooms are open plan bedroom and lounges with en suite bathrooms (two rooms have shower only, please do let us know if you prefer a bath as well), luxurious toiletries and lovely views. All are equipped with flat screen TVs, DVDs, and tea and coffee trays.

‘Chill out in this glamorous country pile’

‘HARRIET’

Simply stunning. 25 feet of wall to wall, floor to ceiling, glass windows overlooking Knipe Tarn and the surrounding woodland. Whatever the season, just sink into the armchairs and watch nature at it’s very best. The family has always loved watching the ducks at dusk, gliding in squadron formation to the centre of the lake.

‘GERTIE’

‘Gertie’ has magnificent views of the countryside to the north, and to the east down the Lyth Valley, reaching as far as the Morecambe Bay coast on a clear day; watching the sun rise through this misty valley is a perfect start to the day, accompanied by a cup of tea in bed. Another large window shows distant views over the Shap mountains, often snow clad in winter; in the foreground enjoy the kitchen gardens, with vibrant coloured flowers grown for the hotel.

‘MAUD’

‘Maud’ is a lovely large room, with views down the Lyth Valley to the east, and a Juliet balcony looking south over Knipe Tarn. Being on the first floor, the views extend beyond the woodland surrounding the lake and across the Lake House grounds. A great vantage point to observe the aerial acrobatics of the bats at dusk as they swoop over the lake. Maud also has a fabulous feature fireplace. Please note that whilst the room is large, the bathroom is small and does not have a bath.
