GILPIN LAKE HOUSE

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

Since opening in September 2010, guests have been blown away by the Lake House. Quiet, untouched, and devoid of traffic or people – whether sitting by the fire in the lounge, in one of the hot tubs, Champagne in hand, or in the swimming pool – the views instil a sense of peace and calm.

Just a mile away from Gilpin Hotel you will find Gilpin Lake House, a sanctuary where just 12 guests enjoy 100 acres of private grounds, with its own lake, boat house, hot tubs, saunas, and swimming pool. With just six bedrooms, the Lake House has the feel of a country house, with all the services of a boutique hotel.

Breakfast can be served to your room or to your table in the conservatory, and lunch and afternoon tea can be taken wherever you prefer. In the evenings our complimentary chauffeurs ferry guests to and from the main hotel to dine at  HRiSHi or Gilpin Spice.

Set within the grounds, the viewpoint “Cat’s Crag” has 360 degree Lakeland views with a herd of wild deer living nearby. Alternatively the walk around the lake and the gardens can absorb a morning. For the more energetic, there are some beautiful runs and bike trails, a tranquil swim in the lake, or just mess about on the water in one of our rowing boats.

Please note that the spa facilities at the Lake House are only suitable for around 12 people, so we aren’t able to open it to Gilpin Hotel guests; the Lake House is also frequently booked for exclusive use, which includes the spa facilities.

Decompression chambers should not be left before the treatment is complete, and whilst the entrance gates stop no one from leaving, many guests choose not to. For many, a good book, a comfy chair by the fire overlooking the lake is simply enough. The Lake House is particularly ideal if you are considering arriving by train as a car is not needed and the Lake House is only a short taxi ride (20 mins) from Oxenholme (just 2.5 hours from London). 

The Lake House spa facilities and 100 acres of grounds are for the exclusive use of Lake House guests. Facilities include a myriad of treatments, traditional saunas (inside and out), two outdoor hot tubs, and a heated indoor pool with views towards the small lake.

The Jetty Spa Trail
3-4 hours of private bliss…

Designed with couples or friends in mind, the Jetty Spa Trail is a bespoke Spa Journey designed to gently stimulate and revive the senses; take time to enjoy the experience together. Your sensory experience begins with a wander through the woodland to the stunning Jetty Spa and a bespoke aromatherapy massage (or treatment of your choice), followed by a deliciously private cream tea in the boat house or gazebo by the lake. Stroll back along the woodland path to the pool for a private swim, a relaxing sauna with an iced fruit frappé and a reviving salt scrub shower. And to top it off? Champagne in the hot tub of course! The trail will guide you as you privately discover sights, sounds, smells, tastes and sensations which will lead you to your ultimate goal – a deep relaxation that will stay with you for a long time.

‘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.

‘ETHEL’

Smaller than the other Lake House rooms it may be, but ‘Ethel’ commands one of the most delightful views over the lake. Situated at the end of the ground floor corridor, ‘Ethel’ has easy access and is tucked away in it’s own corner of the house.

‘BEATRICE’

‘Beatrice’ has two velux windows towards the lake, as well as a large window to the west over the surrounding woodland. This room also has a small adjoining bedroom, ideal for a child (or two at a push), or as an office if you really do need to bring work with you.

‘ADGIE’

‘Adgie’ faces west towards the surrounding woodland, and has patio doors and a small private patio. Please note Adgie does not have a bath.
