Meticulously run by the Cunliffe family, Gilpin Hotel is set in 20 tranquil acres of woodland, moor and country gardens. The family is assisted by a team of dedicated and long serving staff whose experience shows at every corner. Just 12 miles from the M6 and almost opposite Windermere Golf Course ('the miniature Gleneagles'), this four-star Relais & Chateaux hotel is at the heart of the Lake District's wealth of sightseeing, heritage and activities.
Seven rooms lead directly onto the gardens and a further six Garden Suites have hot tubs. 2010 saw the opening of Gilpin Lake House (a mile away) which sits on its own four-acre lake with private spa, boat-house, boat, cedarwood hot tub, indoor pool, salt snug and 100 acres of private gardens and grounds. Accommodation consists of six stunning suites which exclusively share these facilities (the house can also be booked for exclusive use).
A chauffeur will take guests to the main hotel, where they can enjoy 3 AA Rosette cuisine. As in the main house, decor by Christine Cunliffe uses exquisite fabrics, wonderful upholstery, with delicious art on the walls and luxurious bathrooms.
