About Gilpin Hotel & Lake House

Enclosed in a peaceful, countryside environment, Gilpin Hotel & Lake House offers an unforgettable experience with accommodations divided between a hotel and a chalet-style lakeside home. The unique property has its own llamas and alpacas, and a croquet lawn.

Styled with contemporary, nature-inspired decor and personal touches, all rooms feature a seating area, desk and TV. Many units have their own private hot tubs and/or en-suite saunas and steam rooms.

The lake house has a shared pool, hot tub, sauna and steam room, while hotel guests can enjoy access to facilities at a nearby hotel. All visitors may book treatments at the Jetty Spa, which boasts a tree-house setting.

With the Michelin-favoured, modern-British HRiSHi Restaurant and Gilpin Spice, a pan-Asian tapas bar, all located on site, guests won't have to travel far for fine dining.

Gilpin Hotel & Lake House is less than a mile from the Windermere Golf Club, and three miles from The World of Beatrix Potter, an interactive attraction based on the author's books.

Tired looking bathrooms.
