GILPIN LAKE HOUSE
“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 Jetty Spa products are blended using sumptuous organic bases and the finest essential oils.
Elsewhere in the grounds you will find kitchen gardens, a boat house, an outdoor sauna, 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. Half an hour’s walk within the grounds is “Viewpoint”, with 360° panoramic views of the Lake District, including the distant mountain ranges of Coniston & the Llangdales; from here a herd of wild deer that live nearby and birds of prey are frequently seen.

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’
‘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.
