  The Detail...

The perfect couples getaway at the height of true luxury, Gilpin Lake House and Spa offers you a treasure chest of ways to relax and unwind. Wander around the beautiful lake and stunning wooded grounds, enjoy a swim in the indoor pool before lounging in the hot tub with some champaign, or merely sit with a book by the fire gazing out the window at your scenic surroundings. The house is set on 100 acres of gorgeous grounds with a high view point called Cats Crag that has breathtaking 360 degree Lakeland views. Stand and breath the countryside air and maybe catch a glimpse of wild deer.

A truly tranquil sanctuary, Gilpin Lake House and Spa also offers you an extra level of indulgence in The Jetty. A specially designed spa, built three metres into the tree canopy with floor to ceiling windows overlooking the lake, The Jetty was designed with couples in mind. You can both lie down and enjoy a range of Swedish style spa treatments in the most picturesque setting. Choose from a variety of massages, from Swedish to Hot Stone, as well as a number of other luxurious treatments that will soothe your body and soul.

As well as the fantastic spa facilities guests are served breakfast and lunch at the lake house whilst for evening meals are chauffer driven to the main hotel a few minutes away for two restaurants where you can enjoy some sumptuous food, local ales and fantastic wines. Sample the kippers for breakfast or perhaps treat yourself to an amazing full English. Come the afternoon you can enjoy a heart warming traditional cream tea and once the evening rolls around dine in one of the two wonderful restaurants on offer. First up is Hrishi, a Michelin Star restaurant that makes some of most astoundingly good food in the North of England, and the second option is the fabulous Gilpin Spice, offering a range of pan-Asian delights.

Whilst you may wish to spend all of your time enjoying the becalming facilities in the spa, pottering out on the lake in one of the rowing boats, or relaxing by the fire, those who do decide to venture further afield will be pleased with their decision. Located not far from Windermere, Gilpin Lake House is the perfect base from which to explore the Lake District in all its natural beauty. There are also some fabulous historical landmarks nearby including Holker Hall, Muncaster Castle, Wordsworths House and Beatrix Potters Hill Top.
