We are a small, family owned and run hotel that strives to be the best, with a friendly, personal touch. The family team are very proud to have been voted Best Small Hotel 2010 in the national tourism awards held by Visit England, and AA English Hotel of the Year 2011-12.
Explore every single room in fine detail, we are immensely proud of all of them. Designed and refurbished with compromise, most with patio doors leading onto the gardens and with either spa baths or hot tubs whilst at the Lake House (a miles from the main hotel), there are just six suites exclusively.
Guests are often wonderfully surprised when they first enter Gilpin Lodge. The original Georgian country house, built in 1901 but extensively refurbished in 2009, has retained it’s historic charm, heavily influenced by the Arts and crafts movement, but with modern touches of interior design. Blending of the old and new gives a timeless balance, and every room is different, including our four dining rooms, which provokes interest, and the sense of a journey as guests wander through the hotel. Most importantly, it feels like a home.
Our guests visit us for many reasons, often milestones such as honeymoons, anniversaries, celebrations, rest and recovery, spending time with dear friends, love or simply to awaken the senses. We set the scene as beautifully as we can, so you can truly enjoy the time together without worry, and create priceless memories.
