  The Detail...

This Georgian country house hotel oozes historic charm and is a luxurious place to stay. Perfect for foodie couples looking to escape for a romantic break in the Lake District or friends and family after weekend in the country, the Gilpin Hotel is comfy, cosy and set in gorgeous natural surroundings. Built in 1901 and refurbished in 1985, this hotel has plenty of character thanks to the efforts of the Cunliffe family who have owned the property for three generations. The Cunliffes have created a hotel that is traditional and homely with rustic drawing rooms housing bookshelves, lamps and old fashioned family photographs, whilst also adding modern twists that ensure this hotel is truly boutique.

Away from the hustle and bustle of nearby towns, the peaceful surroundings can be explored on foot. You can stroll around the beautiful grounds or travel further afield to see more of what the Lake District has to offer. Enjoy bike rides, horse riding or fishing in spring and summer as youre surrounded by bright colours and luscious greenery. And once the winter months roll around, simply curl up on a leather armchair or comfy sofa with a book by the roaring fire.

As well as enjoying the scenic beauty of the area, guests can also indulge in some soothing spa treatments by chauffeur driven to the nearby picturesque and perfectly designed Lake House Jetty Spa. Or, if youre staying in a Garden or Junior Suite then you can simply have one of the therapists come directly to your room. But the luxury doesnt end there. The hotel also offers up wonderful food in one of two brilliant restaurants. Indulge yourself further at the Michelin Starred Hrishi, and enjoy some of the best food England has to offer. You must also try the second option, the fabulous Gilpin Spice, which offers a range of pan-Asian delights.

You may never wish to leave the comfort of the hotel grounds. However, those of you brave enough to venture out will be amazed at the wonders the Lake District has on show. Enjoy the quaint nearby towns of Windermere or Kendal, or visit historical landmarks such as Muncaster Castle, Beatrix Potters Hill Top and Wordsworths House.
