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.

COME AND STAY...

At Gilpin we have two hotels on two separate estates, but one team, so your time with us, wherever you are, should be seamless. Choose between a very chilled-out hotel, Gilpin Hotel, or our hotel-come-country-house, Gilpin Lake House…

GILPIN HOTEL

Set in 21 acres, Gilpin Hotel has 30 bedrooms, 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!

GILPIN LAKE HOUSE

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 the main hotel if you are dining. Please note that the Lake House spa facilities are only available to guests staying at the Lake House. 

YOUR TUMMY...

For us, hospitality starts with a very warm welcome and ends with a friendly goodbye, with extraordinary service, exquisite décor, beautiful spa experiences both at Gilpin Hotel and at Gilpin Lake House, and stunning culinary experiences in our two restaurants.

Gilpin has two very different restaurants, led by two very different high-profile chefs who work together, sharing the same vision, commitment, passion and values, built on sustainable sourcing with low to no food miles and supporting local producers.

Ollie Bridgwater – Executive Chef 

Ollie has created his own unique Lake District restaurant with sourcing, local produce and sustainability at the top of his agenda, topped with a sprinkling of culinary magic and storytelling that pushes the boundaries of what diners have come to expect.

“SOURCE is a fun, vibrant restaurant that provides a great place to come & have an amazing, inspiring experience, and at the same time providing a professional engaging place for people to work in & be a part of.”

Gilpin Spice is renowned locally for its inspired pan-Asian dishes, and and his team love talking with guests over the chefs’ counter Westy is adding his own style.

“My food is very fun, there’s always a bit of a story behind it. His focus is on storytelling and communicating that to the guests so that they know the background of the dish and what the inspiration was behind it.”

PAMPER YOURSELF...

Whatever room you’re staying in, there is a spa trail or special spa experience just for you, whether with our gorgeous local Pure Lakes products, or the luxurious ESPA range.

Once again Chris worked with Sarah Jane Nielson and her team at Nielsen House, to create a calming and tranquil flow through the whole spa space, creating a sensory journey with naturally scented and textured wall coverings. The scents of the oils and the warm, rich woods welcome you into the apothecary-inspired reception, with hints of the spice trail in the restaurant below. The natural feel flows through with an open bright meadow scene leading to the cool dark impression of woodland in the textured treatment rooms, natural stones in the steam and shower rooms, and a light, calming relaxation room. Outside two hot tubs nestled in Garden Arwen, created with the roots and stumps which fell during Storm Arwen, different kinds of woodland grasses reflect a woodland floor, with woodland ferns to the north and sun-loving sedums to the south. We hope you enjoy the natural, sensory space.
