Where to stay
Langdale Hotel & Spa
In the heart of the Lake District, is the perfect place for getting away from it all. The privately owned, four star 17th century former stately home, has 42 individually designed bedrooms, wood panelled public rooms, real log fire, Lake View Restaurant, six conference rooms, croquet lawn, tennis courts and spa facility..
The best 4 star hotel on the shores of Windermere, offers you a unique location on the water’s edge. It is a classic traditional Lakeland Hotel, personally owned and managed and in a delightful setting.
There is arguably nowhere in the Lake District as special ason the lake. Built in the 1790s, this breath-taking 4 Star luxury hotel is unique in many ways. First of all, when we describe it as Storrs Hall on the Lake, we really mean it.
The hotel not only has views over the lake, the edge of our front lawn doubles as the shoreline of spectacular Lake Windermere. Storrs Hall is a magnificent Grade II* listed Georgian mansion house set on the shores of Windermere.
It therefore has all the intimacy and individuality of a family-run hotel. Most importantly the family are committed to preserving the historic splendour of the Hall whilst ensuring guests enjoy the comfort of modern luxury. All thirty bedrooms, and the stunning boathouse, have recently been refurbished to the very highest standards.
All 25 bedrooms have lovely Lakeland views, most leading directly onto the gardens – 6 with their own Cedarwood hot tubs, and 5 fabulous new detached Spa Lodges, each with their own ensuite spa (rainmaker showers and steam rooms inside, hydrotherapy hot tubs and saunas outside) for a very special, private experience.
If on the other hand you are staying at Gilpin Lake House (a mile away on a separate estate), you can choose from one of the 6 rooms that exclusively enjoy 100 acres of grounds.
Set in 21 acres, Gilpin Hotel has 25 bedrooms, 2 restaurants (the Michelin starred HRiSHi and the casual pan Asian Gilpin Spice), a Champagne Bar, lounge, terraces, a croquet lawn – and our resident llamas and alpacas!
The Spa Lodges and the Garden Suites are all at the hotel, not at the Lake House, so if you’re wanting your own hot tub, the hotel is the place for you.
Just a mile away from Gilpin Hotel you will find Gilpin Lake House, a sanctuary where just 12 guests enjoy 100 acres of private grounds, with its own lake, boat house, hot tubs, saunas, and swimming pool.
The Lake House has the feel of a country house with all the services of a hotel. Breakfast is served at the Lake House; our complimentary chauffeur will take you to dine at HRiSHi or Gilpin Spice.
