UNESCO Awards Lake District as a World Heritage Site Joining the likes of the Grand Canyon, the Taj Mahal and Machu Picchu, the Lake District has been awarded World Heritage Status by the UNESCO committee, praising the area's beauty, farming and the inspiration it has provided to artists and writers, following a 21-year campaign.

As the only 5* hotel, Gilpin Hotel & Lakehouse is a haven for walkers, climbers and sailors, but also for those who crave clean air, inspiring geography, soothing peace, and permission to switch off. Stay in one of 5 unique, self-contained Spa Lodges, in a hotel Garden Suite with its own hot tub or at the Lake House, which is set on its own private lake. To help you unwind there are spa treatments using local products, and Michelin-starred dining in the hotel's fine-dining 'Hrishi' restaurant where Chef Hrishikesh Desai produces modern British dishes with a twist of Asia, satisfying traditionalists while giving experimentalists something new. Alternatively, try a less formal lunch or dinner in the hotel's new restaurant, Gilpin Spice - with a menu inspired by dishes from the Spice Route.
