I stayed at The Gilpin last weekend from Friday lunchtime for two nights. I visited alone having booked last minute as a very much needed getaway to somewhere that I hoped would offer me tranquillity, luxury and revitalization. The Gilpin provided me with everything that I’d hoped for, and expected, given what I had heard about it. To find a... More

Me and my partner visited Dec 2013 just a few weeks before Christmas. We stayed at the Lake house in the Gertie room. Absolutely fabulous. The room was classic english heritage and so beautiful. The bathroom spacious, complete with shower and with a big tub, with sky lights above. Beautiful views could be seen from here. We dined at the... More

We stayed here in the Garden Suite and was the best hotel we have stayed in. We were immediately greeted by friendly staff who took our bags and car around to our room whilst we were given a tour of the hotel and made familiar with the services they offered. As soon as we walked into the room we were... More

My best friend and I spent last weekend in the outstanding Gilpin Lakehouse to celebrate her birthday and to say we had an unforgettable time is an under statement! From the moment we pulled up to the iron gates we knew it was going to be good and the very warm welcome by Peter and his amazing team just confirmed... More

We have recently stayed in a Garden Suite at the Gilpin and we have to say our stay has been one of the nicest we have ever experienced whilst staying in the Lake District. The service was absolutely superb, from the minute we arrived until the minute we left. The room was huge, the bed so comfortable, the hot tub... More

This was our first visit to the Lake District in over 20 years and we couldn't have picked a better hotel to stay at. Very friendly and attentive staff and luxuriously appointed rooms. The quality of the food both at breakfast and in the evening was also very high.

Have just returned from a two night stay at the Gilpin. We stayed in the Cleabarrow room which was lovely. The iced water and shortbread with the tea was a pleasant surprise. The food on both nights was excellent and the staff are very attentive. Our favourites included the scallops and the lamb for two which were amazing, however all... More

My husband and I enjoyed three nights in the Haystack garden suite with private hot tub on our small terrace with views of llamas. The suite was impeccably furnished with treats including (artificial) log fire, super king bed, enormous shower/bathroom with selection of toiletries, the lighting effects (dimming etc) which were thoughtfully designed, the espresso coffee machine was an unexpected...

We stayed at Lake House as a family in July 2014 to celebrate my Parents in Law's Golden Wedding in style - and what style! Everything was laid on to perfection and the house, gardens, tarn and facilities were really exceptional. Liz, the manager was charming, pleasant, courteous and very efficient in her running of the Lake House. Nothing was... More

We have just got home from the most fabulous 3 night break at the Gilpin. I don't know where to begin to tell you all about it. From the moment we arrived we knew we were somewhere very special. The interiors are beautiful, Very well designed, not stuffy at all, but contemporary with a warm cosy feel. An great deal... More
